Home Base, a partnership between the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital, offers a multi-disciplinary team of experts working together to help service members, Veterans and their Families heal from Invisible Wounds: traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress, and related conditions. Home Base works in cooperation with the Veterans Health Administration and the Department of Defense to promote the health and well-being of Veterans.
Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Home Base services are specifically designed to overcome common barriers to caring for Veterans and their families.
Services are provided to all Veterans and Families, regardless of ability to pay or discharge status, and utilize a “three generation” model of care that extends to parents, children, and extended family members who are effectively integrated into a care team.
Home Base’s integrated team is composed of child and adult psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists, nurses and nurse practitioners, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, licensed clinical social workers, addictions specialists, and peer-to-peer outreach coordinators. All are Veterans and/or Family Members of the Post-9/11 wars. They work together to ensure that Veterans and their families receive or are connected to appropriate and uniquely tailored care.
Therapeutic care is focused primarily on those in eastern Massachusetts and those who can temporarily relocate there for care.
