Home Care for Veterans
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Qualifying Benefit Programs
Veterans who are eligible for VA healthcare benefits have access to home health care and other services. Maxim Healthcare Services is contracted nationally with the VA and locally through the Community Care Network (CCN) Providers. We provide home care services for veterans who are eligible to receive care funded by their local VA Medical Center. This includes veterans who require care for a condition, illness or disability developed during duty, otherwise known as, “service-connected.” We are able to support veterans through the following VA programs:
- Community Care Network (All regions in the continental United States)
- Veteran Care Agreement (VCA) with Local VA Medical Centers

Specialized Care in the Home
At Maxim Healthcare Services, we pride ourselves in providing quality long-term home healthcare through a wide range of home care services. We specialize in caring for veterans affected by medical conditions such as:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
In collaboration with the patient’s physician, we adapt the level of care as a patient’s medical needs change, from personal caregiving services to comprehensive hourly private duty nursing (also known as expanded care).
How We Help Our Veterans
Skilled Home Healthcare
Skilled Home Health Care is for Veterans needing short-term care as they are moving from a hospital or nursing home back to their home. It can also be used to provide continuing care to people with ongoing needs.
The program is for Veterans who need skilled services such as: skilled nursing, case management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound care, or IV antibiotics.
Homemaker/Home Health Aide Care
This program is for Veterans who need personal care services and help with activities of daily living. This program is also for Veterans who are isolated or their caregiver is experiencing burden.
Respite Care is a program that pays for care for a short time when family caregivers need a break, to run errands, or to go out of town for a few days. This program pays for a person to come to a Veteran's home or for a Veteran to go to an adult day health care program while their family caregiver takes a break or runs errands.
