Veteran Home Care Services (VHC)

Veterans’ Home Care is a Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) programme designed to assist those veterans and war widows/widowers who wish to continue living at home, but who need a small amount of practical help.

If you are a Gold or White DVA Card holder living at home and have been assessed as needing home care assistance by a VHC Assessment Agency, you may be eligible for support through VHC.

You must have an assessment by a VHC assessor who will discuss your circumstances to identify the range of services that may be needed. Most assessments are done over the phone, however if the VHC assessor determines that an assessment in the home may be of more benefit than over the phone, they will arrange a time and day suitable to you.

To arrange an assessment call a VHC Assessment Agency on 1300 550 450.

VHC services include:

  • Domestic Assistance
  • Personal Care
  • Safety-related Home and Garden Maintenance
  • Respite Care
