Spouses, and family are by far the best advocacy Veterans can have.

Please go with your family members to all VA appointments. All to often family members opinions of potential health problems get more attention than what a Veteran may say. This is because, living with the Veteran you can see potential issues sooner than a doctor or health care provider will see them.
Veterans who have served in a combat situations or a high stress situations have higher risks of PTSD, depression, or suicidal issues.

Be watchful of mood changes, out of character behavior, or loss of interest in normal activities. All of these are warning signs that a potential problem may exist.

Literature is available upon request from the Vet Center, VA, and VFW.

The Kansas City Vets Center is free confidential and comes to Trenton the 1st Friday of each month at VFW Post 919. Vet Center phone number is: 1-816-753-1866

Veterans who are elderly may need more care. There is a program called Aid and Attendance. This VA program can pay all or part of a Caregiver coming in and helping.

We also have a free VA shuttle service that is based in Trenton but picks up in other areas on it's route. For a ride call: 1 816-922-2449 you need to leave your name, phone number, last four of your social security number, number of people going, Date of needed ride, and time of your appointment.

If you spot elder abuse call: 1-800-392-0210. 24 hours a day seven days a week.

Please educate yourself, stay informed, and stay with it, as a team we can be successful in helping all Veterans.

For more information please call Wayne Kleinschmidt at: 660-359-2078
