Senior Helpers® is helping senior veterans all over the U.S. understand how they can qualify and apply for the VA’s Aid & Attendance Benefit, which pays seniors for the in-home senior care they need to live comfortably and safely. Veterans, spouses of veterans, and surviving spouses of veterans who are homebound or require the aid and attendance of another person can qualify for this payment if they meet certain criteria. Call Senior Helpers at 877-844-9822 to learn more.
Right now millions of veterans qualify for this benefit, but they do not know it. Veterans who served a minimum of 90 days of active duty, including one day of active duty during a period of war such as World War II, the Korean War, or the Vietnam War, all may qualify for this benefit.
Veterans are being given one more honor for their acts of service in defending freedom in the United States and around the world. Veterans, their spouses, and surviving spouses of veterans may be eligible for the Veterans Administration’s Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit, which is a non-service connected pension benefit that awards Veterans for in-home care they now need to fully enjoy their retirement.
In-home senior care services for Veterans that are awarded include Activities of Daily Livings, or ADLs, which include activities such as bathing, dressing, cooking, taking medications correctly, and other services. In-home senior care helps Veterans, their spouses or surviving spouses of Veterans get around and enjoy their senior years safely and healthfully while remaining at home.
Additionally, in-home senior care services that help Veterans, their spouses, or surviving spouses of Veterans who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia are also included. For these individuals, the right care and comfort within their own homes may be awarded by the VA’s Aid and Attendance Pension benefit.
Senior Helpers is nationally known for world class in-home senior care for everything from light housekeeping and errands to full Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Senior Helpers will guide you through the process of understanding if you may qualify for the benefit and then will put you in touch with an accredited veteran agent who can assist you with applying for the benefit with a fully developed claim. A fully developed claim is processed more quickly and is more likely to be approved. Some claims are approved in as little as 30 to 60 days.*
