The Medical Foster Home Program

When living at home becomes difficult, most people would rather remain in a home-like setting than move to a nursing home. MFH, through partnering with Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) provides an alternative to nursing home placement. It provides an alternative to a Veteran who may be chronically or terminally ill with limited social support by offering a home and family setting for their long-term care needs. It is 24- hour supervision, protection, and personal care in addition to room and board with one-on-one attention provided in a family setting.
