DVA Care: Supporting Our Veterans

At Colbrow Care, we proudly support our veterans through the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) ‘s DVA Care program. We aim to help veterans live independently and comfortably in their homes. Whether you’re a veteran yourself or caring for one, our DVA Care Services can provide essential support and assistance to help Veterans stay in their homes for as long as possible.

Amongst other things, The DVA program can be used for:

Staying Independent

With programs like Veterans’ Home Care (VHC), DVA Care offers help with daily tasks such as housework, personal care, and yard maintenance. This support is designed to help veterans maintain their independence and avoid needing residential care facilities.

Recovering After a Hospital Stay

DVA Care covers the cost of convalescent care, providing temporary support after hospital discharge. This service helps veterans regain strength and adjust to life back at home.

Supporting Caregivers

Recognising caregivers’ crucial role, DVA Care offers respite care to give them a well-deserved break. Additionally, DVA provides resources and support to help caregivers manage their responsibilities effectively.

Making Your Home Safe

DVA can assist with home modifications to make living spaces safer and more accessible for veterans with disabilities. Through the Rehabilitation Appliances Program (RAP), veterans can also receive essential equipment like wheelchairs and grab bars.

Financial Assistance

In certain cases, the DVA provides financial assistance to veterans who need help managing daily living expenses so they can live comfortably at home.

Community Connection

DVA helps veterans connect with local resources and support groups, fostering a sense of community and ensuring they have access to the support they need.
