 The Contract Adult Day Health Care program
places eligible Veterans in outpatient day health
  settings, providing health maintenance and
rehabilitative services to frail elderly persons at
 Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) expense.
 The Contract Community Nursing Home program places
     eligible Veterans requiring nursing home care in
community nursing facilities at VA expense. The Contract
Community Nursing Home Program has the advantage of
 being offered in many local communities where Veterans
can receive care near their home and families. Placements
 may be authorized after all other home and community-
          based care options have been explored.
  The Homemaker/Home Health Aide program
provides at VA expense non-medical personal care
 assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs),
health monitoring, and other specific household
   tasks necessary for the maintenance of the
          Veteran in his/her own home.
The Community Residential Care Program provides room,
     board, and limited personal care and supervision to
  Veterans who do not require hospital or nursing home
   care, but are not able to live independently because of
 medical or psychiatric conditions, and have no family to
  provide care. The Veteran pays for the cost of this living
 arrangement. Medical and psychiatric care is provided to
      the Veteran primarily on an outpatient basis at VA
    facilities. Home visits are made by VA social workers.
  The Outpatient Respite Care Program provides respite
   care in a non-institutional setting, i.e. in the home,
  CADHC, or nursing home setting. Respite care is care
   designed to relieve a caregiver from the physical and
emotional burden of caring for chronically ill and disabled
Veterans in the home. With the passage of PUB.L.106-117,
respite care services have been expanded to include home
and community-based care alternatives in addition to the
       institutional options traditionally provided.
