GRACE

The GRACE Team works with your VA primary care provider to help you receive the personalized care you need to stay as healthy and as active as possible.  Sometimes older veterans have medical problems that are difficult to manage.  By visiting you in your home, the GRACE Team can help your VA doctors continue to provide you with the best care possible and help you and your family better understand and manage your health conditions.

The GRACE Team is a nurse practitioner and a social worker who visit you in your home to assess your needs.  The Team then works together with the VA and your primary care provider to help you develop a care plan that is personalized for you and your family.  Then, by staying in contact with you regularly, the GRACE Team can help you be proactive about staying healthy.

Mr. Smith is an example of how the GRACE program helps and supports our Veterans.  Prior to meeting the GRACE team, Mr. Smith was falling frequently at home and was suspicious of doctors.  His doctors worried that he had problems with his memory because he did not take his medicines correctly.  The GRACE nurse practitioner and social worker met Mr. Smith in his home and discovered that he could not hear very well.  As part of his personalized care, the GRACE team wrote things down to talk with Mr. Smith.  In time, he started taking his medicines, which made him feel healthier and helped him to walk better.  He was also better able to talk with his doctors now that they knew to write their questions down.

“You guys are the best thing that came out of my heart attack!”  GRACE Veteran

“The GRACE team saved my husband’s life and my sanity.  I had hit rock bottom when the team came to our home and didn’t know how we were going to continue like this.  The entire team is warm and sensitive to our needs.  I would like to thank GRACE from the bottom of my heart for giving me my old husband back!”  GRACE Caregiver
