Home Care Services for Veterans
Our Comfort Keepers help veterans who need assistance to live and thrive in the home environment they love. Our professional caregivers are highly skilled, trained, and ready to provide your loved one with a clean home environment, fresh-cooked meals, personal assistance, and technology support to help with grocery or food delivery.
Our Partnership With The Department of Veterans Affairs
We appreciate the many sacrifices veterans have made to protect our country, and we're committed to providing veterans with uplifting in-home care services that allows them to live independently at home.
Veterans may qualify for VA benefits to cover some cost of their in-home care and surviving spouses may qualify for respite care. VA home care programs were designed for those who meet specific financial criteria and demonstrate a physical need for in-home care. Comfort Keepers has a close relationship with the Department of Veterans Affairs, making accessing home care services for veterans even easier.
Respite Care for Veteran's Caregivers
Family caregivers of veterans may qualify for respite care, short term relief from those caregiver responsibilities, through VA benefits. Comfort Keepers caregivers will ensure your loved veterans will still get the care needed while you can take that necessary break.
We're a Proud National VA Provider
Comfort Keepers is proud to serve the veterans who have selflessly served our country. As a national VA partner, we have experience providing in-home care services to thousands of veterans that allows them to live safe, happy, independent lives in the comfort of home.
The Veterans Affairs Community Care Network (VACCN) program for in-home care support was designed for those who demonstrate the physical need for in-home care. Contact Comfort Keepers to learn more about our uplifting in-home care services.
Services Available for Veterans
VACCN can help ensure each client receives the right amount of help. The family of older veterans often ask the same question when looking into their options for veterans' home care: Does the VA provide home health care? Yes, and Comfort Keepers has partnered with the VA to provide home health aides and homemaker services for veterans.
Veterans of all ages can benefit from Comfort Keepers award-winning in-home care for seniors and adults who need assistance at home. Our skilled home care aides let your loved one remain at home for as long as safely possible, a dream come true for many veterans. We understand family members' struggle when a loved one needs extra assistance in their home, and we're here to help. Let our caregivers relieve this stress by providing professional home care services with a personal touch.
Personal Care and Companion Care
We provide a variety of services across two categories: personal care and companion care.
Personal care for veterans who sacrificed so much and need support with daily activities and tasks to live independently at home. Our experienced caregivers can assist with personal care such as bathing, mobility assistance, grooming, and more. Personal care is a broad term that supports basic personal hygiene and activities of daily living, including dressing, grooming, and toileting. Comfort Keepers’ trained caregivers respectfully assist with personal care needs ranging from stand-by assistance to full care depending on each veteran's individual needs.
Companionship care, or companionship, provides veterans with emotional support, friendship, and socialization. Common home companion care activities include:
- Conversation and mental stimulation, such as playing games or listening to music
- Meal prep and time spent together over breakfast, lunch or dinner
- Light activity, such as a walk or time spent outside
- Laundry and light housekeeping
- Technology support for appointment scheduling or grocery delivery
- Reminders for personal care and grooming
- Medication reminders
