26 Feb Adult Day Health Program
Many veterans may not be aware of the Adult Day Health Program. Adult Day Health Care is a day program that provides health socialization, rehabilitation services, and caregiver and maintenance services. Veterans who are interested in adult care are usually the elderly and disabled. The primary purpose is to help veterans and their caretakers to manage things properly at home.
For veterans with no health care provider, the VA 10-10EZ form allows them to sign up for a VA health plan. To learn more, visit: www.1010ez.med.va.gov/sec/vha/1010
Disabled veterans on the VA health plan are excused from the long-term copay.
Home Health Care Services (SHHC) and Homemaker and Home Health Aide Services (H/HHA):
SHHC, as the name suggests are the services provided at home under the supervision of experts including occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers, etc. The special care includes many activities such as treatment planning and provision. H/HHA are services meant for disabled veterans that allow them to stay at home.
