Home Care Aide Services
Veterans Administration Home Care Aide Program. This VA Program typically provides up to 20 hours a week of aide care services to Veterans of all ages who qualify and need assistance to help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) like bathing, grooming, accompanying to appointments, meal preparation, etc. in order to stay independent at home. The program 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. The program also allows a non-spouse family member (or friend) to be hired by the VA approved Home Care Provider and get paid to provide the in-home aide care – if the provider is willing to screen, hire, and train the family member.
Care Planning Institute (CPI) is a VA contracted Home Care Provider and has a Family Provider Program that screens, trains, and hires Veteran family members (or friends) – allowing the Veteran to receive care from someone reliable that they already know and trust. CPI pays its caregivers at the top end of market pay rates (up to $35/hour – depending on the zip code). If the Veteran does not have a non-spouse family member or friend, CPI can place one of its quality/screened and highly paid caregivers to provide the care. Our benefit application services are free to Veterans.
