Program A: Louisiana War Veterans Home

Program Authorization: R.S. 29:381 et seq.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Louisiana War Veterans Home is to provide medical care, domiciliary and nursing home care to veterans.

The goal of the Louisiana War Veterans Home program is to provide the best available domiciliary and nursing home care to disabled and homeless Louisiana veterans in an effort of returning the veteran to the highest physical and mental capacity.

This program was instituted in recognition of the growing long-term health care needs of increasing numbers of Louisiana veterans who are disabled by age or disease or are otherwise incapable of caring for themselves.

The Louisiana War Veterans Home consists of two activities: Administrative and Patient Care.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

 

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

This program is funded with State General Fund, Fees and Self-generated Revenues and Federal Funds.

Federal Funds are derived from the Veterans Administration for patient care days based on a reimbursement rate of $17.78 per day for domiciliary care and $40.00 per day for nursing care.
