Description

As an option for Veterans enrolled in the Home Based Primary Care program, some VA medical centers (VAMCs) offer Medical Foster Home care in a traditional home setting. Since the homes are limited to no more than three residents, Veterans who qualify receive highly individualized, 24/7 long-term care. Veterans living in a Medical Foster Home may benefit from improved strength, decreased reliance on medications, and be happier.

Watch the video for a tour of one Medical Foster Home. As one resident says, “It gives you more security, more feeling of belonging, and that’s good.”
