A Guide to Long-Term Care

Week of April 22, 2013

In response to the needs of the growing number of aging veterans, VA has developed an online Guide to Long Term Care, which includes decision aids -- the Shared Decision Making Worksheet for Veterans and the Caregiver Self-Assessment -- to help veterans and their family members consider long term care options. The Guide was developed by a team of health educators and geriatric specialists and reviewed by older veterans and their caregivers. VA social workers are already using the Guide and decision aids to help Veterans make more informed decisions about long term care. The Guide to Long Term Care is available on the VA website at www.va.gov/geriatrics/guide.
