Veteran-Directed Home and Community-Based Services: A Program Evaluation

This is a report of the first evaluation of the Veteran-Directed Home and Community-Based Services (VD-HCBS) program. NRCPDS staff interviewed Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) coordinators and reviewed information about Veterans both in and out of the program. The evaluation showed that VAMC coordinators found the program to be a success. It also found that the program was serving, on average, higher needs Veterans than were being served by a comparable home care program.
