Veterans Home Care


The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers veterans comprehensive health care benefits through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). Some Veterans may not know that long-term care services such as in-home care are part of this standard medical benefits package. Read on to learn how veterans can take advantage of the VA’s Homemaker and Home Health Aide program (H/HHA).

Home Care for Veterans: VA Homemaker & Home Health Aide Care Program

The VA homemaker and home health aide care (H/HHA) program is one of many home and community-based services the VA offers. The goal of the program is to help veterans remain safe and independent while continuing to live in their own homes. Under the supervision of a contracted home care agency, trained home health aides support veterans at home by providing assistance with personal care, daily activities, companionship and respite care for their family caregivers. The H/HHA program can also be combined with other VA home and community-based services, but availability may be limited.

Veterans Home Care Benefits:

The H/HHA program is described on the VA official site as providing “a trained person who can come to a Veteran’s home to help Veterans with personal care services and activities of daily living.” This program is also for Veterans who are isolated, or their caregivers are experiencing burden.

Home health aides can help ensure patient safety and provide assistance with the following instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs):

  • Light housekeeping necessary to maintain a safe and sanitary environment in areas of the home used by the patient (ADLs):
  • Laundering essential to the comfort and cleanliness of the patient
  • Meal preparation
  • Grocery shopping
  • Escorting the patient to necessary appointments

Home Health aides provide assistance with the following activities of daily living (ADLs):

  • Bathing
  • Toileting
  • Eating
  • Dressing
  • Ambulating or transfers
  • Home Exercises
  • Assistance with medical equipment
  • Routine health monitoring

Eligibility for Veteran Home Care Program:

Eligibility for this program is open to those who are eligible for or already enrolled in the VHA Standard Medical Benefits Package. The VA official site states that there must be a clinical need for these services and that a copay may apply, “based on your VA service-connected disability status.” Homemaker Home Health Aide services can be used together with other important benefits in this area including other Home and Community-Based Services.
