Qualifying Veterans may receive up to 20 hours of home care aide assistance per week – via the Veterans Administration Community Care Program.
This VA Program can provide up to 20 hours a week of aide care services to qualifying Veterans of all ages who need assistance to help them with activities of daily living (bathing, grooming, accompanying to appointments, meal preparation, etc.) in order to stay independent at home (includes independent living). It is also designed to remind those who have cognitive impairment (like Alzheimer’s Disease) to perform their ADLs. Once approved, the Veteran can choose their home care provider from a list of VA contracted providers.
Care Planning Institute (CPI) is a VA contracted Home Care Provider. CPI has a Caregiver Choice Program (CCP) and can appropriately screen, train, and hire a Veteran’s family member (or friend) that does not live with them – allowing the Veteran to receive care from someone reliable they already know and trust. CPI pays its caregivers at the top end of local pay rates (up to $35/hour depending on the zip code). If the Veteran does not have a family member or friend, CPI can place one of its quality/screened and highly paid caregivers to provide the care. NOTE: Care Planning Institute is a VA contracted Home Care Aide Provider. CPI is not associated with any government agency and cannot guarantee eligibility for any government program.
