Va Help At Home


Recommended Posts

  • HadIt.com Elder

Last time I saw my Primary Doc she wrote up a request or consult to help me out at home with my Meds. All of a sudden I have a Health Aid who is scheduled to come twice a week for 1 hour each visit. She is rubbing and massaging my feet and legs and making me do exercises, taking my blood pressure and temperature.

Also a nurse comes and is going to come once a week. She take vitals and does a blood glucose test and organizes my meds for a week. She says she will come every Thursday.

The Aid says that she could come more and fix meals and do light cleaning. I am a little bervous about having to worry about strangers coming into house and having to be ready for these visits although I do admit that the massages and exercises make me feel better.

One time they sent a nurse over for a short time to help me get my meds organized.

This might be the basis of a higher level of A&A! Heh, heh, it all adds up. My nurse at the VA said I needed a cane. I told her I fell down a few times. Being screwed up translates into money in VA methodology.
