The Homemaker and Home Health Aide (H/HHA) program is one of many home and community-based services the VA offers. The goal of the program is to help veterans remain safe and independent while continuing to live in their own homes. Under the supervision of a registered nurse, trained Homemakers and Home Health Aides support veterans at home by providing assistance with personal care and daily activities, companionship, and respite care for their family caregivers.

Homemaker and Home Health Aide care may include assistance with a wide range of daily tasks to help veterans continue living safely and independently in their own homes.

VA home care isn’t just for the benefit of veterans. It also provides family caregivers with valuable respite time and peace of mind. These services can be used with others, such as adult day program, to ease the burden on families and delay or prevent nursing home placement for veterans.
