Looking ahead, the number of Veterans of all ages who are eligible for nursing home care is estimated to expand from about 2 million Veterans now to about 4 million Veterans by 2039. As this population grows, VA remains steadfast in providing the highest levels of care to Veterans in the least restrictive settings, with plans to expand the Home Based Primary Care, Medical Foster Home and Veteran-Directed Care programs to all VA medical centers by the end of fiscal year 2026.
