AVCC: Bringing Quality Home Care to Your Doorstep

For Veterans, understanding the array of benefits they’re entitled to—especially when it comes to health care—can sometimes feel like navigating a maze without a map. The transition from active service to civilian life brings with it a need for knowledge about the various support systems available, particularly in health care.

At AVCC, we’re always striving to find the perfect solution for you and your unique situation. Below, we’ve outlined some useful differences between assisted home health care and home care that families nationwide can reference to find the help they need.

Assisted Home Health Care Support

Assisted home health care is designed for Veterans who require more specific and skilled nursing care or therapeutic services. This option is closely aligned with traditional health care but is specially adapted to be provided in the Veterans home. It’s particularly beneficial for those who are housebound or live far from VA facilities.

This program, as outlined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, extends short-term health services for Veterans requiring skilled nursing care, therapy visits, patient education, and an array of social services. It caters to Veterans needing more intensive, health-focused care, ensuring their medical needs are meticulously managed within the familiar comforts of home.

AVCC’s Veterans Home Care Benefits

Home care, on the other hand, represents a broader spectrum of long-term support services, executed by non-skilled workers. This option is an ideal fit for Veterans seeking less intensive support to maintain independence and quality of life.

We’re always looking to expand our network of high-quality home care providers, so you’ll have the broadest options. These services include, but are not limited to:

  • Companionship
