Senior Solutions provides case management for the Veteran Directed Care Program (VDC) which is a VA Administration Program and an alternative to receiving care in a nursing facility. It allows veterans who require help with activities of daily living—for example, bathing and dressing, medication, and financial management—to receive services and support in their home. To enhance the veteran’s independence, quality of life, and ability to age at home, VDC can provide day supervision, assistive technology, homemaking, environmental supports, and other services tailored to the individual.
The program enables veterans to direct their own care or appoint a surrogate, to hire private caregivers, and manage a personal budget. A Care Advisor from Senior Solutions will help identify personal goals and develop a person-centered care plan. The VA contracts with a fiscal management service, ARIS Solutions, which is responsible for background checks, workers’ compensation, timesheets, and payroll.
