Here are the steps you should take to use Evergreen Private Care for your Homemaker and Home Health Aide services through the VA:
1. Contact your local VA office: If you have confirmed your eligibility for Homemaker and Home Health Aide services, the next step is to contact your local VA office to begin the process of choosing a provider. VA representatives are available to help you navigate this process and answer any questions you may have.
What other Veterans say: “Start with your Social Worker. If you can determine who your social worker is the whole process is much simpler.” We suggest calling your local VA Hospital or Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) and ask for the name and extension of your social worker. Every Veteran is assigned a social worker.
2. Choose Evergreen Private Care as your provider: When you contact your local VA office, you can choose Evergreen Private Care as your provider by indicating your preference on your application or by contacting the VA and requesting Evergreen Private Care as your provider.
3. Discuss your care plan with your primary care doctor: It is important to involve your primary care doctor in the process of receiving Homemaker and Home Health Aide services. Your doctor can help you determine the types of services you need and work with the VA and Evergreen Private Care to develop a care plan that is tailored to your specific needs. Make sure to discuss your care plan with your doctor and share any concerns or preferences you
