New Partnership Uses Participant-Directed Services to Keep Veterans in Their Communities and Out of Nursing Homes

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) and National Resource Center for Participant-Directed Services (NRCPDS) have launched a new partnership to help Veterans of all ages and disabilities stay out of nursing homes and live independently at home in their communities. Veterans enrolled in the Veteran-Directed Home and Community-Based Services Program manage their own flexible spending budgets for their personal care services – deciding for themselves what services best meet their needs, hiring and supervising their own workers, including family and friends, and purchasing items or services that help them live more independently.
