Home Based Primary Care

Home based primary care is a group effort between the Veteran, family, caregiver and VA. The program uses a multi-discipline team of health care professionals (nurses, doctors, social workers, dietitians, etc.) who work together to create a plan of care specific to each Veteran. The program is designed for homebound Veterans to:

  • Improve quality of life
  • Restore health and independence
  • Reduce the need for admissions and re-admissions to the hospital
  • Reduce the length of hospital stays
  • Reduce the number of outpatient visits
  • Support caregivers in their desire to keep a loved one at home

Home Based Primary Care Provides:

  • Medication management and education
  • Wound care
  • Pain management
  • Laboratory draws
  • In-home telehealth
  • Care coordination between VA and community care providers

Home based primary care referrals are made by the primary care provider.
