Heidi Duty: Serving a Critical Need

Veteran suicide rate is currently 20 per day, and
(800) 273-TALK is the main VA resource 
Veterans have.

Heidi connects Heroes to the VA via www.maketheconnection.net to reconnect the Veteran with their health, their weapon, and civilian life.

Gun safety is often ignored by Civilians, who have little understanding of how a Veteran is either associated with their weapon in a healthy way or disassociated entirely from their weapon in an unhealthy way.

Non-medical caregiving has a vital role to support both Veterans and their families. Working in the home, non-medical caregivers can provide support that the VA cannot. Listening to the Veteran, the Carer can reconnect that individual to community services.

 

How Does Heidi Duty Help?

Eliminating Veteran suicide through education on Veteran specific in-home care.

Gun safety education for Veteran Caregivers, most of whom are women, in their immediate family. Domestic violence of any kind is not tolerated.

  • Extreme Caregiving

    Covid-19 Statement: All services are rendered abiding CDC protocol. No duty is too great or small if within the limit of the Law.  I am on the Home Care Services (HCS) Team of Spokane's Mann Grandstaff VA Hospital as an individual provider of charitable home care services.  I can bill through VA long term care insurance, or work on a sliding scale/pro bono nights and weekends.  What work I cannot do myself is referred to world class Caregivers.

  • Super Cozy

    We respect Veteran boundaries at all times.  Being gentle and resourceful is the name of the game to improve each Vet's life.

  • Gun Safety

    Gun Safety App coming soon

    I am trained in field stripping, cleaning, and storing weapons.  Free trigger locks are available.  I am not a gun grabber or a gun nut.  I am single minded about gun safety, recognizing that 70% of Veteran suicide are committed with their own guns. Often times a Vet needs help getting out to the range, or cleaning and storing weapons to feel better.

  • Field Stripping the Home

    Most Caregiving services keep a clean home clean and do only light housekeeping.  Heidi Duty takes everything apart, wipes it clean, then puts it back together to the Veteran's specifications.

  • End of Life Care

    Heidi Duty is equipped to care for Veterans in partnership with their local Hospice.  Heidi Duty is committed to the highest level of care for Veterans at the most vulnerable stage of life.

  • No Questions Asked

    Heidi Duty never asks questions.  True neighbors do not ask questions.  True neighbors take action if need be, or simply listen and never pass judgment.  

  • Business Consulting

    My experience in global resource networking, also known as supply chain management, makes me an asset in determining your business plan.

    While electronic components are my field of expertise, I am happy to offer ideas, administration, and networking for any business. Veterans bring a unique perspective to STEAM fields and are always given first priority.

    I am proud to be a member of these guilds:
