SERVING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY

Did you know that there are financial benefits available for veterans and/or their surviving spouse that will help pay for senior care services; Assisted Living, Board & Care homes and In-Home care?

The Veterans Aid & Attendance was established in 1954 under section 38 USC to assist qualified veterans, and their surviving spouses, to receive financial benefits outside of the traditional Veterans residential system. Veterans Aid & Attendance is a mandatory pension and is not subject to partisan spending or discretionary federal budget cuts.

You may be eligible for the Veterans Aid & Attendance pension if:

1. Age 65 or older or disabled (not due to willful misconduct of the veteran)
Have an honorable or general discharge.

2. Served at least 90 days active duty with at least 1 day during any of the following :​​

* WWII – December 7, 1941 thru Dec 31, 1946
* Korea – June 27, 1950 thru January 31, 1955
* Vietnam Conflict – August 5, 1964 thru May 7, 1975
* Persian Gulf – August 2, 1990 to a date to be determined

​ 3. Have a medical diagnosis that requires daily assistance with at least one or two of the following ADL’s: bathing, dressing, grooming, personal hygiene, toileting, ambulation, medication management, feeding, meal preparation, or the need to live in a protected environment.

4. Limited income and net worth that does not provide adequate maintenance. Whether a veteran or a claimant has excessive net worth is determined on case-by-case basis, contact us for more information.

Whether you are considering a move into a senior community with assistance or need help staying at home, your military service could qualify you for significant benefits. The Veterans Aid & Attendance pension helps qualified veterans and/or their surviving spouses purchase the senior care they need.
