Non-medical care is assisting with day-to-day issues that medical professionals cannot address. A Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor non-medical care management team anticipates the needs wounded warriors and their families may face during a major life change. The team members resolve any unexpected problems that arise during the recovery process, allowing wounded warriors to focus on healing.
Perhaps most importantly, the team offers wounded warriors and their families a shoulder to lean on, a helping hand, an ear to listen, and encouraging words. The team members act as advocates when a service member needs one most.
Regional non-medical care providers tailor support to each enrollee’s needs. Support can include assistance with:
- Child and youth care
- Commissary and exchange access
- Development of Comprehensive Recovery Plan
- Education and training benefits
- Invitational Travel Orders
- Legal and guardianship issues
