The Medical Foster Home (MFH) Program provides an alternative to nursing home placement and long-term care. Through the MFH Program, caregivers will provide a safe, homelike environment and an economical long-term care alternative for Veterans who are unable to remain in their own homes because of health issues. The MFH Program is a unique partnership with the VA Home Based Primary Care Program that allows Veterans who no longer can live safely at home to remain in the community. These programs work together to provide medical and support services to the Veteran and support for the MFH caregivers. Veterans served by the MFH Program must be enrolled in the HBPC Program and also must meet the criteria for nursing home placement.
