Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care for Veterans in Tarrant County

What is Homemaker Home Health Aide Care?

Veterans Home Care

A Homemaker and Home Health Aide are trained and qualified individuals who can assist Veterans in their homes by helping them carry out their daily activities. This service is available to Veterans of any age and can enable them to continue living in their own homes. It is important to note that Homemakers and Home Health Aides are not nurses and are supervised by a registered nurse who will assess the Veteran’s daily living needs.

This program is for veterans who require personal care services and assistance with daily living activities. It is also for Veterans who are socially isolated or whose caregiver is experiencing stress.

Homemaker & HHA services can be combined with other home- and Community-based Services. Services may vary by location.

Homemaker Home Health Aides are individuals who work for organizations that have contracts with the VA. They provide services that can be used as an alternative to nursing home care or to get Respite Care at home for Veterans and their family caregivers. A homemaker or home health aide can assist veterans of any age in remaining in their own homes.

Am I eligible for Homemaker Home Health Aide Care?

All eligible Veterans can receive Homemaker Home Health Aide Care if they qualify for community care, meet the clinical criteria, and the service is available, although services may vary by location.

What services can I get?

Services are based on your assessed needs. Talk with a VA social worker to find out what specific help you may be able to receive.

For example, an aide may be able to come to your house several times a week or just once in a while
