Veterans' Home Care (VHC) is a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) program designed to assist veterans, war widows and widowers (entitled persons) who need a small amount of practical help to continue living independently in their home.
VHC Services include
VHC is not designed to meet complex or high-level care needs. Veterans may also be eligible for DVA Community Nursing
VHC services are subsidised by the Australian Government through the Department of Veterans' Affairs. There is a fee co-payment required to be paid by the program recipient. This will be determined by the VHC assessment agency.
Veterans and war widowers who hold a Veteran Gold Card or a Veteran White Card for an accepted condition are eligible to be assessed for all VHC services. To receive VHC services, you need to undergo an assessment with a DVA VHC Assessment Agency who can be contacted on 1300 550 450.
Following a request from the VHC Assessment Agency, our Care Coordinators will arrange a convenient time to discuss your care plan and commence the delivery of the approved VHC service.
