Did your loved one or their spouse serve in the U.S. military? If so, they may be eligible for home care benefits from the Veterans Administration.
Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast is proud to service our Veteran’s. 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 Veteran’s 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. 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. Senior Helpers takes the initiative to educate Veteran’s and their families about this benefit and walks them through the process.
What Is the VA’s Aid & Attendance 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.
Seniors Helpers is a strong advocate for seniors that served in the military. The VA has a program that can reimburse veterans for home care based on certain qualification criteria. To learn more about this program, please visit the Veterans Administration website or contact the Greater Seacoast Senior Helpers office.
