Many veterans do not receive the home care services they are entitled to. At AVCC, we do our best to close the gaps in care and pair veterans with home care service provider who can help them live at home and perform daily tasks. Here how you can become a veterans’ home care provider.
Becoming a Home Care Provider
For Veterans’ Family Members
Maybe you’re a family member of a severely injured veteran who needs home care. If you become a caregiver to a veteran who suffered qualifying injuries before May 7, 1975 or after September 11, 2001, you can qualify for several benefits from the VA. These caregiver benefits include a monthly stipend, access to health insurance, covered travel expenses, and mental health services and counseling. Your veteran must need help performing at one daily task in order for you to qualify for these caregiver benefits. To find out more about becoming a caregiver for your veteran family member, visit the VA’s website. You can also apply to be a caregiver through our website.

Also, we put all of the forms and paperwork in order so you can apply for these services without jumping through hoops or getting tangled in a tricky process with the VA.
Why Home Care Services?
Why should you consider home care services when you or your veteran could relocate to an assisted living facility or a nursing home? While those facilities can improve the quality of life for many veterans with service-connected disabilities, not all of them want to relocate or are in a physical condition to do so. Home care offers these veterans the assistance they need in their daily lives while allowing them to stay in a place they are comfortable with. If they need home health care, you can look into applying skilled home health care through the VA. Overall, home care gives veterans the ability to receive the assistance they need without needing to leave their home behind.
AVCC is devoted to making sure veterans receive the home care and benefits they are entitled to. We can pair them with home care service companies, get them financial assistance to pay for, and we can help surviving spouses do the same.
