Veteran-Directed Care Program

The Veteran-Directed Care program helps veterans who are at risk of nursing facility placement continue to live in their homes. Veteran-Directed Care helps veterans of all ages who need nonmedical support and services, case management and assistance with daily activities (such as bathing and getting dressed, fixing meals and taking medicines), are isolated or whose caregiver is overburdened. The veteran or a caregiver manages their flexible budget to pay for services. DRCOG Area Agency on Aging case managers are the veteran's primary source of support through this program.   

The video below shows a case study of a participant in this program through the Area Agency on Aging of Central Texas.
