    Does Tricare or the VA pay for Adult Day Care Services or in-home services (personal care, respite)?

    These services allow the elderly to age gracefully while remaining in their own homes and not a nursing home. They are also much less expensive than nursing home care.

    I'm not personally aware of any Adult Day Care benefits under Tricare but that doesn't mean something isn't available. Try the following Tricare links. You should be able to call or e-Mail a question to your TriCare Management group.

    The VA offers a Special Monetary Compensation for Aid and Attendance. You need to be 100% + have an additional 60% to qualify. Some area's offer Adult Day Health Care but I don't know if it is available nation wide. Worth calling the folks in VISN 2 and ask if they have any links in your area. Hopefully Vike will be along shortly to offer some insight into SMC.

    Don't forget to check with your state's Veterans Home. Most operate with financial support from the VA and may have some outreach services.
