Home Care Benefits for our Nation’s Veterans
“Aid and Attendance Pension” The Most Underutilized Benefit for Veterans
Many senior veterans and surviving spouses could benefit from a vastly underutilized benefit offered by the VA, that benefit is the Aid and Attendance Pension. The Aid and Attendance Pension provides benefits to veterans & surviving spouses to reduce the cost of assisted living and home care services. Many of our nation’s veterans are eligible for this service but are unaware of its availability! That is where the VetAssist® Program comes in.
The VetAssist® Program was founded over 14 years ago and they are dedicated to helping veterans who have devoted their time to serve our country, get the benefits they need. The program helps veterans who qualify for the Aid and Attendance Pension to remain in their own homes and receive home care assistance. The process to receive benefits through the Aid and Attendance pension is exhausting for most veterans, a variety of documentation is required as well as a lengthy application. The VetAssist® Program is there to help you identify and obtain the necessary documents for your application as well as complete and submit the application to the VA. The best part of the VetAssist® program is that they will provide your in-home care right away with an interest-free loan while the VA processes your application.
Once you have received your pension, the VetAssist® program continues to assist you. The program actively monitors your home care schedule and tracks your medical expenses so you can stay in compliance with the VA. Veterans home care is a key resource to those senior veterans who could use assistance with day to day tasks that may have become daunting, including, bathing, dressing, transportation, light cleaning and so much more. Advanced Nursing & Home Support is actively working with VetAssist® to set up a program to serve the senior veterans in the Maryland/DC metro area. Stay tuned for more updates!
