A Better Way to Care for Our Veterans?

By Mary Lazare, Principal Deputy Administrator

I recently visited Bay Aging in Urbanna, Virginia, to learn more about their current work and receive an update on their Veteran Directed Care (VDC) program. I met with personnel from Bay Aging, veterans enrolled in the VDC program, and staff from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, specifically the Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center.

Bay Aging, one of Virginia’s Area Agencies on Aging, has been helping older adults and people with disabilities by providing a long list of services for more than forty years. Some of their programs have even spread into nearby states and Washington, D.C. The number of people they serve has steadily grown to over 26,000, and their VDC program has seen an impressive 34 percent increase since I last visited in 2017.
