    Why I Started VRS Support

    in Education

    VRS Support was established in 2012 to help VRS members have a better understanding of their options. No one knows what the future holds. That’s why you need a plan to help ensure that no matter what twists and turns life sends your way, you’ll have a financial safety net to protect you and your family.


    We know people like you sitting right where you are, thinking about retirement and not exactly knowing what to do.


    We were in your shoes not to long ago. We wish we knew what we know now before we went to the Human Resource / Benefits Department.


    You have enough years in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) to retire. What should you do next? You need some answers you need more information and you need it soon.


    This Blog Talk Radio Station provides information to better help you understand the decisions you must make. We hope you find it useful.


     We want to share information and help you make the right decisions about your retirement.

    Former Actor, Director, and Teacher Turned Caregiver, Redefines "The Good Life"

    in Caregiving

    Donna Thomson, author of the best-selling book, The Four Walls of My Freedom will be interviewed by Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, Wednesday, June 17, at noon PDT.  Her book portrays the account of raising a son with cerebral palsy and her passionate appeal to change the way we think about "the good life."


    Donna Thomson’s life was forever changed by her son Nicholas. Donna gave up her career to become his primary caregiver and embarked on a second career as a disability activist, author, and consultant.


    She will discuss her experience in treading delicately through daily care, emergencies, and medical bureaucracy as Donna and her family cope with her son’s condition while maintaining value and dignity.


    She brilliantly demonstrates the vital contribution that people with disabilities make to our society and addresses the ethics and economics of giving and receiving care and will also discuss  ways that communities can help caregivers.

    Dave The Caregiver's Caregiver & His Wife, Charlene Nassaney's Amazing Story

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and his lovely wife, Charlene Nassaney's Amazing story of survival, but not just survival, living abundantly with peace, joy and contentment in the midst of a debilitating stroke and a cafregiver spouse.


    Original broadcast airs this Wednesday, 8/12/15, and anytime afterwards on recorded podcast at the same link.


    Charlene’s story is truly amazing, and very encouraging to everyone.  All who meet her instantly fall in love with her. She has been described as a cross between Martha Stewart and Wonder Woman before her stroke, and it is not uncommon for some who meet her to cry — not tears of pity — but tears of joy and amazement for her attitude and ability despite her disability. Her way of communicating without words is very interesting and very entertaining to experience.


    She is also a woman of great faith.  At times, we all wonder how we would respond, if a similar circumstance were to happen to us, or to one of our family. She has been non-verbal and paralyzed on one side since September, 1996 as a result of an unexpected, and unexplained stroke.


    You truly will be amazed at Charlene’s great positive attitude, which tends to keep our own problems in their proper perspective. Charlene’s story is now an encouraging testimony that inspires anyone who hears it.

    You Are Not Alone! Caring For The Family Caregiver. Greg Johnson

    in Caregiving

    Are you a family caregiver? If you provide regular and unpaid care to a loved one, you are a family caregiver, the backbone to the caregiving industry. Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, as he interviews Greg Johnson, the creator and director of EmblemHealth's Care for the Family Caregiver, an initiative that was started nearly 15 years ago as part of the Integrative Wellness program, this Wed. May 6, (at noon, PDT, 3pm, EDT, and afterwards anytime, 24/7 on recorded podcast)


    One of many definitions for family caregivers is: "Someone who shows up, and stays to help," and: one who is, "Always On Call."  One in three people in America are unpaid family caregivers, rendering a value to the healthcare system of $450 Billion Dollars! Caregivers need care too!


    Their goal is to offer information, resources and support that caregivers need to avoid becoming care recipients. We recognize that family caregivers are often the forgotten or silent patients.


    Many caregivers endure physical, emotional and economic challenges without adequate support. Most need help in order to maintain their own health and quality of life.


    EmblemHealth's Care for the Family Caregiver initiative recognizes the health needs of the "silent patients" and is designed to serve as a resource. We encourage you to see us as a supportive partner in your caregiving journey.
