Veteran's Home Health Aide Program

The VA has a program called “Homemaker and Home Health Aide Program.” 

Visiting Angels has been a provider for this Homemaker and Home Health Aide program since 2013.

The Homemaker and Home Health Aide program is only for the Veteran. Under this program, Visiting Angels can help with services such as:

  1. Showering/bathing and dressing (this is required)
  2. Preparing Meals
  3. Light housekeeping
  4. Laundry

The VA approves all Veterans for this program and the VA determines the hours of service. The services are paid by the VA.

How to get approved for this Program?
