Long-Term Care

Long-term care (LTC) may be required for Veterans with a variety of conditions that range from stroke to complex battlefield injuries. Veterans may receive LTC services in a variety of settings, including a rehabilitation facility, adult daycare, hospice, or at home. HSR&D investigators study a range of questions around LTC including quality improvement in hospice care, resources for long-term caregivers, and service preferences for those receiving in-home LTC.
