Here are 7 unexpected MilLife hacks from Military OneSource:

When you’re called to relocate to a different part of the country — or the world — Military OneSource can help you pick the best neighborhood for your family. A consultant will dig into the demographics of your new community and give you statistics on schools, crime, cost of living and more.

Whether you have a newborn, toddler, preschooler or school-age kid, Military OneSource will work closely with you to find caregivers you can trust. Let us research accredited child care providers, including nannies, home day care, child care facilities and after-school care. Military OneSource can also provide checklists and articles to help you find the best fit for your child.

Military OneSource knows how important it is that your child’s school matches their needs. We can research public school districts and private schools in your area. Military OneSource can also connect you with trusted home-schooling resources. If you’re looking at colleges, a Military OneSource consultant can connect you with resources to help with your search.

From athletics to academics to the arts, it seems there’s a summer camp for every interest. But which is best for your child? Military OneSource can investigate camps in your area, including overnight camps, day camps and tour and travel camps for a summer experience your child will love.

Military OneSource adoption consultants are specially trained in military adoptions. We can help you navigate the process, whether you are adopting internationally or domestically.

Caring for an aging parent, grandparent or another older loved one can be challenging when your military duties take you far away. Military OneSource elder care consultants can help you find appropriate care, whether it’s in-home or facility-based. We can also help you research insurance, transportation and programs for your loved one.

When you deploy or relocate temporarily, Military OneSource can help you arrange a plan for your pet. We can research programs that match volunteer foster homes to service members in need of temporary pet care. If you’re moving and want to bring your animal with you, Military OneSource can search for companies that will transport your pet across the country or overseas. We can also look for grants to help with the cost of moving your pet. And you can trust Military OneSource to provide you with information about importation laws, quarantines and breed restrictions at your overseas location.
