Veteran Directed Care

Veterans Affairs Overview

Veterans of all ages can have long-term services and supports provided in your own home. Through the Veteran Directed Care (VDC) program, you can choose the type of help that is important to you, and you can choose who will provide it. Instead of moving into a nursing home or center, you can use the program to continue living independently and being involved in your community.
