Chelsi Taylor, Military Caregiver

May 7, 2020

“I left the Caregivers Retreat truly feeling like I’ve added a dozen sisters to my family. Life has been rough lately and stress is at an all time high. I lost my self identity, lost interest in doing things I used to love and fell into a depression I couldn’t shake. I left Vail feeling like I have hope again. This is not the end of the book, this is the end of a chapter. I’m walking away knowing I’m not defined by my husband’s accident. I can still go after my dreams and that no matter what I will have support in whatever choices I make in life. The Vail Veterans Program has been a huge blessing to not only my husband but my family as a whole. When my husband’s healing journey began it felt like it was all focused on him. But this healing process is a whole family thing. Yes, he may be the one who was injured but we all felt the shock of it. We all needed time to heal together and separately and this program really has helped us do both.”
