Skilled Home Care Services involve short-term care that is delivered by a community-based home health agency that has a contract with the VA for veterans who are homebound or live in a remote location. Homemaker and Home Health Aide Services can be utilized to help Veterans remain in their own home. Home Telehealth allows the Veterans physician or nurse to monitor the Veterans health remotely using home monitoring equipment. 13
