Home Care Benefits for Veterans with Health Needs

Benefits from the Veterans Health Administration

There are many seniors’ services and care funding available once enrolled in a VA Health Plan. Such include standard medical benefits, Service-Connected Disability care, and VA Long Term Care Services. These long term care services include Respite Care, Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care, Home Based Primary Care, Adult Day Health, Hospice and Palliative Care, Skilled Home Health Care, and Nursing Home and Residential Care Settings. 

Someone who served in the active military, reserve or National Guard may qualify for VA health care benefits from a variety of providers, including Right at Home.

Among the possible benefits are home care and funding for home care which could include important services that allow a veteran to remain at home as long as possible and enjoy the company of a Right at Home caregiver. This helps reduce a sense of isolation.

"Being a proud Navy Veteran, I find great joy in taking care of my fellow Veterans. I believe they deserve so much more than what they are authorized. We do our best to help them receive everything for which they are qualified and help them in any way we can,"

Right at Home owner, Jim Ryan.

Respite Care

The VA pays for Right at Home to come to the veteran’s home.

There is a limit to the visit duration and number of visits, but this service can provide relief to a caregiver knowing there is a trusted Right at Home team member taking care of their loved one in their absence.

Homemaker & Home Health Aide Care

This benefit pays for Right at Home to come to the veteran’s residence to provide assistance with dressing, bathing, personal care, meal preparation, laundry and feeding, regardless if a family caregiver is in the home. Keep in mind, the VA does not allow Right at Home to transport the veteran in any vehicle.

The veteran’s health care provider at the local Veteran Affairs Medical Center will determine how many home care visits a veteran can receive. Veterans can ask their provider for more care and can request Right at Home to be their provider. This service has to be initiated by the veteran or their VA medical professional.

Right at Home Rock Hill is an approved and contracted provider of these home care services from Optum. We look forward to providing assistance with the process.

Jim joined the United States Navy in 1984 and was immediately shipped off to Great Lakes, Illinois for boot-camp. He was trained in Dam Neck, Virginia and then joined the crew of the USS Lawrence DDG-4 on a UNITAS cruise around South America. His time on the Lawrence as a Fire Control Technician ended when the ship was decommissioned on March 30, 1990. At this time Jim was shipped off to the USS Iowa BB-61. His duties on board this ship while working in the Fox Division was to prepare her for decommissioning. This decommissioning ceremony took place on October 26, 1990 the same day Jim was discharged from the Navy.
