Veteran Homemaker and Respite Services


If you are a veteran requiring in-home care or the assistance of a caregiver in your daily life, you may be eligible to receive Homemaker and Respite Care benefits from the Veterans’ Administration. Here are some commonly used VA benefits for senior home care we provide:

Homemaker Services

This program is for Veterans who need help with activities of daily living. This program is also for Veterans who are isolated or their caregiver is experiencing burden. Caregiver services can be used in combination with other Home and Community Based Services.

A Caregiver is a trained person who can come to a Veteran’s home and help the Veteran take care of himself and his daily activities.

Caregivers are supervised by CareAparent Care Managers who help assess the Veteran’s daily living needs.

CareAparent works with Veterans through a referral for services from your VA primary care physician, nurse or social worker. A Caregiver can be used as a part of an alternative to nursing home care, and as a way to get Respite Care at home for Veterans and their family caregiver. The services of a Homemaker or Home Health Aide can help Veterans remain living in their own home and can serve Veterans of any age.

Respite Service

Respite Care is a service that pays for a person to come to a Veteran’s home or for a Veteran to go to a program while their family caregiver takes a break. While a Veteran gets Respite Care, the family caregiver can run errands or go out of town for a few days without worrying about leaving the Veteran alone at home.

Respite Care can be helpful to Veterans of all ages, and their caregiver. Veterans can receive Respite Care in an inpatient, outpatient or home setting.

The program is for Veterans who need help with activities of daily living. Examples include help with bathing, dressing, fixing meals or medication reminders. This program is also for Veterans who are isolated or their caregiver is experiencing burden. Respite Care can be used in combination with other Home and Community Based Services.

Respite Care can help lower the stress the Veterans and their family caregiver may feel when managing a Veteran’s long term care needs at home.
