VA Palo Alto Health Care System


Extended Care

What We Do

Our mission is to assist frail and elderly Veterans and their families in their struggles with chronic illnesses or disabilities. Some needed care may be provided directly by teams of VA clinicians, working in a variety of settings. We contract with certain community agencies to provide other care and we may assist with referrals to community resources. Care may be provided in various settings.

Who We Are

Extended care services are provided by interdisciplinary teams with special knowledge and expertise in the care of frail and elderly patients. Teams generally include physicians with special training in Geriatrics or Palliative Care, nurses, social workers, psychologists, occupational and physical therapists, nutritionists, recreational therapists, and chaplains, among others. It is an honor for us to serve Veterans, who have so honorably served their country.
