Veterans sometimes can receive eldercare in medical foster homes (private families)


NBC Nightly News tonight covered the opportunity for aging veterans to receive care in “medical foster homes”, hosted often by individual families.

There was a report on the practice on the “As Time Goes By” website on Aug. 7, 2012 here

 The cost is much less than a typical nursing home or assisted living center and sometimes VA benefits do apply to some of the cost.
  
NBC reported on a 92-year-old WWII veteran from “The Greatest Generation”  receiving subsidized care in a private home.
