From the abstract:
Medical Foster Homes (MFH) are an alternative to nursing home care for Veterans who prefer care in a private home rather than an institutional setting. Referred to as “micro homes,” up to three residents can receive care in the home from a primary caregiver who owns the home and receives room and board payment from the Veteran. All medical care is provided by the VA Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) Program.
