VA to Expand 3 Caregiving Programs by 2026


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced plans to expand three of its home- and community-based caregiving services to its 171 medical centers by the end of 2026.​​


Home-Based Primary Care: This program is for service members who need in-home support for ongoing diseases and illnesses that affect their daily lives. A VA physician oversees a team that provides health care services to veterans in their own homes. It is designed for veterans facing isolation and veterans whose caregivers need extra help. ​


Medical Foster Home: A trained caregiver provides services to a few people in a private home. Some, but not all, residents are veterans. The VA inspects and approves all Medical Foster Homes, which serve as alternatives to nursing homes.​


Veteran-Directed Care: Veterans of any age may be eligible to receive personal care services for help with daily living activities such as bathing, dressing and preparing meals. Veterans are given a budget for services that are managed by service members themselves or their representatives. ​​
