Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care
Geriatrics and extended care for veterans are available through the Homemaker and Home Health Aide program. This program is for Veterans who need personal care services and help with activities of daily living. It can help Veterans remain living in their own home and can serve Veterans of any age. This program is also for Veterans who are isolated, or whose caregiver is experiencing a burden.
A Homemaker and Home Health Aide is a trained person who can come to a Veteran’s home and help the Veteran take care of themselves and their daily activities. The services of a Homemaker and Home Health Aide can help Veterans remain living in their own home and can serve Veterans of any age. Homemakers and Home Health Aides are not nurses, but they are supervised by a registered nurse who will help assess the Veteran’s daily living needs.
