VA Approved Homemaker & Home Health Aide Care
This benefit pays for our in-home caregivers to come to the Veteran’s residence and assist with dressing, bathing, personal care, meal preparation, laundry, and feeding, regardless of whether a family caregiver is home. There is no out-of-pocket cost to you. This is a VA-covered benefit.
The Veteran’s health care provider at the local Veteran Affairs Medical Center will determine how many home care visits a veteran can receive. Veterans can ask their provider for more care and request Seniors Serving Seniors to be their care provider. This VA service has to be initiated by the Veteran or their VA medical professional. Speak with your VA representative and ask how you can obtain Homemaker & Home Health Aide Care from Seniors Serving Seniors.
