Welcome all women Veterans, family members, caregivers, and advocates! The Center for Women Veterans’ (CWV) mission is to monitor and coordinate VA’s administration of health care, benefits, services, and programs for women Veterans. We serve as an advocate for cultural transformation and to raise awareness of the responsibility to treat women Veterans with dignity and respect to #BringWomenVeteransHome2VA.

Today’s VA is focused on the needs of women Veterans and cultural transformation. We aim to provide an environment free from harassment. VA has introduced White Ribbon, a national call to action to eliminate sexual harassment, sexual assault, and domestic violence. VA Secretary McDonough is making accountability of those who commit harassment or sexual assault an important part of creating a culture that is free from harassment and sexual assault, without fear of retaliation.

We are women Veterans proud to serve our sister Veterans and those who serve them. Stay in touch, sign up for email, follow us on Facebook. We share information on benefits and services, events, stories, research and more. Thank you for your service!

Our prescribed pediatric extended care services let your kids be kids. Our state-of-the-art facility was designed with children in mind, allowing them to play, dream, and grow — all while meeting their physiological, developmental, nutrition, and social needs. Our goal, through PPEC, is to impact the lives of our medically complex children from the early stages of life all the way into early adulthood.

What is PPEC?
Prescribed pediatric extended care, or PPEC for short, is provided at a non-residential center that serves medically complex or technologically dependent children under the age of 21 who require short, long-term, or intermittent medical care due to medically complex conditions.

The ACP PPEC provides services to medically complex children who cannot attend a regular daycare. Our services meet the child’s physiological, developmental, nutrition, and social needs. We provide nursing and psychosocial services, developmental therapies, caregiver training, and personal care support to our children.

Advanced Care Partners entered the adult care market when our patients started to age out of the pediatric programs we serve. Every family that transitions from caring for a medically complex “child” to caring for an “adult” understands how challenging this time can be. As our children age, they often require more specialized and intensive care. We build strong bonds with our families that last a lifetime, just like the care we provide. From birth to adulthood, we are your partner for in-home adult care every step of the way.

Individuals living with physical disabilities or special needs have unique care requirements, and in many cases, mobility is limited and some level of home care is required. At BrightStar Care of Metro San Antonio, we provide a personalized approach to care, case management, and disability assistance for our clients.

Quality Home Care:

BrightStar Care care professionals are trained to help those with disabilities and special needs such as Spina Bifida, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Cerebral Palsy and spinal cord injuries, giving them the support they need to live as independently as possible. From disability aids and accessible transportation to personal care, our advanced and specialized expertise in this area ensures our clients’ safety, and empowers you and your family to get the most out of life.

Our disability care services include:

  • Pressure Relief: Mobility issues can lead to pressure sores, debecutis ulcers and, in severe cases, the need for wound care. BrightStar Care caregivers are trained to provide pressure relief every 15 minutes for wheelchair-bound patients, and to turn bed-bound patients every two hours to prevent complications caused by prolonged immobility. Our CNAs are also trained in the transfer of patients using Hoyer lifts and slide boards, and use the proper techniques to help patients avoid injuries and falls during transport.

What is Speech Therapy?

Speech Therapy (ST) is an intervention that focuses on improving a child’s speech and abilities to understand and express language.

Therapy includes coordinating the mouth to produce sounds to form words, increasing a child’s ability to understand and express language via different communication modalities (e.g., written, pictorial, body, signs, and the use of language through alternative communication systems such computers, and iPads), and overall help strengthen and coordinate the muscles in the mouth for speech and feeding purposes.

In the latter, ST also focuses on assessing a child’s chewing skills, and whether they are moving their tongue correctly to thoroughly breakdown the food and propel it back for the swallow. Lastly, speech therapy can also help babies improve their ability to suck from a bottle and coordinate breathing while eating.

Articulation Disorders:

This when a kid has trouble saying certain sounds or saying words correctly. “Run” might come out as “won.” Or “say” may sound like “thay.” Lisps are considered articulation disorders. 

Fluency Disorders:

If a kid repeats certain sounds and has trouble saying the complete word, he or she may have fluency disorder. For example, a kid trying to say “story” might get stuck on the “st” and say “st-st-st-story.” Or he or she might draw out certain sounds and say “ssssssstory.” A stutter is a fluency disorder. 

Resonance or Voice Disorders:

A kid might have a voice disorder if people have trouble understanding him or her. The kids might start a sentence loud and clear, but it’s quiet and mumbling by the end. Sometimes these kids sound like they have a cold or like they’re talking through their noses. 

Language Disorders:

A kid who has trouble understanding people or has trouble putting words together to express thoughts might have a language disorder. 

Swallowing Disorders:

A child with feeding or swallowing difficulties (dysphagia). Symptoms include: falling asleep while eating, breathing difficulties while eating or drinking, eating only certain foods, food aversion, breastfeeding difficulties, lengthy feeding times, difficulty chewing, excessive drooling, coughing, or gagging while eating, and maintaining appropriate weight.
