Veterans Independence Plus

The VIP program serves veterans of any age who are at risk of nursing home admission.

The program provides veterans with the opportunity to receive services to enable them to live in their own homes and communities.

This program allows a veteran to receive a comprehensive assessment to identify needs and preferences, develop an individual budget and service plan, and purchase goods and services (including the hiring, training, and termination of employees) that will best meet their needs.

Participants in this program are not given the funds to manage, but work with Bristol and a fiscal intermediary. Participants are, however, given control over the goods and services they purchase to remain in the community.
