Veterans Affairs Canada Evaluation of the Veteran's Independence Program (VIP) - August 2016 The evaluation of the Veterans Independence Program was conducted in accordance with the Veterans Affairs Canada Multi-Year Risk-Based Evaluation Plan 2015-20. The evaluation covers the time period from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2015, and was conducted between June 2015 and January 2016. The objective of the Program is to assist eligible recipients to remain in their homes and communities as long as possible by providing financial assistance towards services which support and promote independence and health. Depending on circumstances and health needs, the Program can contribute to services such as housekeeping, grounds maintenance, personal care, access to nutrition, and health and support services. When home care is no longer practical, the Program assists Veterans to remain in their communities through financial support for intermediate care in community facilities (i.e., nursing home care). The evaluation focused on the housekeeping and grounds maintenance components of the Program because: * these two components combine for 77% of total program expenditures; and * significant changes were made to the method of payment for these components during the period of the evaluation. 2016-08-31 2019-01-05 Veterans Affairs Canada vac.opengovernment-gouvernementouvert.acc@canada.ca Government and PoliticsVeterans Affairs CanadaVACVeteran`s Independence ProgramVIPInternal AuditingEvaluationVeterans Evaluation of the Veteran's Independence Program (VIP) - August 2016HTML http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-us/reports/departmental-audit-evaluation/2016-evaluation-vip Evaluation of the Veteran's Independence Program (VIP) - August 2016HTML http://www.veterans.gc.ca/fra/about-us/reports/departmental-audit-evaluation/2016-evaluation-vip Evaluation of the Veteran's Independence Program (VIP) - August 2016PDF http://www.veterans.gc.ca/pdf/deptReports/2016-evaluation-vip.pdf Evaluation of the Veteran's Independence Program (VIP) - August 2016PDF http://www.veterans.gc.ca/pdf/deptReports/2016-evaluation-vip_f.pdf
