Veterans

Ultimate Home Health Care is honored and proud to be able to serve veterans for their healthcare and home care needs. As a provider of services to the VA we can deliver skilled nursing and homemaker services covered by VA insurances.

Skilled Home Health Care

Skilled home health care is for veterans needing short-term care when they move back to their home from a hospital or nursing home. It can also be used to provide continuing care to people with ongoing needs. The program is for veterans who need services such as: skilled nursing, case management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound care, or IV antibiotics. Skilled home health care can be used in combination with other home and community-based services. The care is delivered by a community-based home health agency that has a contract with VA.

Homemaker or Home Health Aide Care

A homemaker or home health aide is a trained person who can come to a veteran’s home and help the veteran take care of themselves and their daily activities. Homemakers and home health aides are not nurses, but they are supervised by a registered nurse who will help assess the Veteran’s daily living needs. This program is for veterans who need personal care services and help with activities of daily living. This program is also for veterans who are isolated, or their caregiver is experiencing a burden.
Homemaker and home health aide services can be used in combination with other home and community-based services. Services may vary by location. Homemakers or home health aides work for an organization that has a contract with VA. Homemaker or home health aide services can be used as a part of an alternative to nursing home care, and to get respite care at home for veterans and their family caregiver. The services of a homemaker or home health aide can help veterans remain living in their own home and can serve veterans of any age.
