When veterans are no longer able to live independently, whether due to an injury or age, they’re not left to deal with it alone. The VA’s geriatric care unit was made to provide long-term care and rehabilitation to veterans, whether they’re 50 or 95. When they first arrive at the care center, the VA medical team works to identify what issues are preventing them from living on their own.
For some, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or a simple change of medication is enough to restore their independence. Those with chronic conditions, however, remain at the care center. There, the VA team works to meet all their care needs and helps them to live the fullest life possible.
Watch the video above to learn what it’s like in the geriatric care unit and hear why being a VA nurse is so rewarding.
Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
