Community Residential Care

What is it? Am I eligible? What services? How do I decide? What do others say?
Adult Day Health Care

The Community Residential Care (CRC) program is for Veterans who do not need hospital or nursing home care, but cannot live alone because of medical or psychiatric conditions, and who have no family to provide care.

This type of care takes place in a number of settings including Assisted Living facilities, Personal Care Homes, Family Care Homes, Group Living Homes, and Psychiatric Community Residential Care Homes. These places – about 1,300 of them across the country – are inspected and approved by VA medical center staff, but are chosen by the Veteran.
