Abstract

Home-Based Primary Care is a program designed by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to care for frail, medically complex, elderly veteran patients in their home setting. Unique to the VA, the program has similarities and differences in relation to typical Medicare/Medicaid home health and hospice programs. The VA has demonstrated success in maintaining the patients' independence and quality of life as well as exceptional management of chronic disease and prevention.
