Home Care for Veterans
Home care allows veterans the choice to receive care in the comforts of their home as opposed to receiving care in an inpatient setting, such as a hospital or a skilled nursing facility. Our team of highly-trained, experienced clinicians partner with physicians and other service providers to coordinate a full-spectrum plan of care that promotes positive clinical and outstanding service. Our most common services include:
Skilled Home Health Care is short-term care for patients moving from a hospital or nursing home back to their home or continuing care to people (patients? instead of people…) with ongoing needs. This type of care includes skilled nursing, case management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound care, and/or IV antibiotics.
Homemaker/Home Health Aide Care is for patients who need personal care services and help with activities of daily living. This type of care is great for patients who are isolated or their caregiver is experiencing burden.
Respite Care is a type of care provided for a short time period to give the current caregiver a break. A new caregiver would come to the patients home or the patient would go to the adult healthcare program at a facility while the main caregiver takes a few hours or days off.

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). Below are several real life examples of these benefits being utilized across the country.
