Homebound vets get some help

March 2, 2011

If patients can't get to the clinic, then the clinic will go to the patients.

That's the reasoning behind the VA Medical Center's Home Based Primary Care Program, which is designed to provide clinical medical services to home-bound veterans.

The program, which began locally last April, currently serves 39 veterans living within a 60-mile radius of the Big Spring VA Medical Center.

“Basically, the program is a clinic that we take to the veteran,” said Mabel Kelley, program director. “We try to help those who have difficulty coming to the clinic … It helps to keep the veteran out of the hospital and in a home setting longer.”
