Home Care for Veterans

Posted on: April 01 2021

​More than one third of Americans over 65 are either wartime veterans or the spouse of a wartime veteran.

A veteran or the spouse may qualify for a pension program through the Department of Veteran Affairs* (VA), commonly referred to as “Aid & Attendance”. Yet, only a small fraction of those who are eligible actually know about this benefit. Thousands of families already benefit immensely from the pension program, to help pay for quality care they could not have afforded otherwise. Any veteran or spouse of a veteran who is exploring HOME CARE, or any family member searching on their behalf, should inquire about Aid & Attendance.


WHAT IS AID & ATTENDANCE?

Veterans and survivors who are eligible for a VA pension and who require the aid and attendance of another person (or are housebound) may be eligible for additional monthly payments above the normal pension amount. When applying for Aid & Attendance, if you are not already receiving a pension, you must also submit a basic pension application in order to qualify. Financial qualifications for Aid & Attendance are different than financial qualifications for the basic pension alone. Therefore, some people qualify for Aid & Attendance even though they would not have qualified solely for the basic pension. The benefit can provide up to $2,200 per month to Veterans and their spouses for Home Care Services to help them with personal care needs in their home or chosen place of residence. There are currently over 15 million Veterans who are believed could qualify for this benefit and only 3% of them are currently taking advantage of it.


Using AID & ATTENDANCE for Home Care

Most Veterans-Spouses want to stay in their homes and by putting their Aid & Attendance benefits toward home care services it allows them to do so. With home care services, professional caregivers visit your home. Caregivers perform tasks such as bathing, grooming, meal preparation, laundry, and light housekeeping. These tasks help you maintain a good quality of life while staying in the comfort of your own home.
