Many Veterans and their families are uniformed that the Veterans Administration has benefits that pay for home care providers. Senior Life Care Planning, helps veterans qualify for those VA programs. Therefore, an in-home caregiver can provide services i.e. preparing meals, light housework, bathing, etc. for those Veterans who require assistance at home.

Terri Mason, care manager for Senior Life Care Planning states that “There are many VA programs, which can help many veterans, their widows and families and we want to get the word out, so that our deserving veterans know these programs are available to them.”

 A Veteran’s eligibility for Aid and Attendance benefit depends if the veteran requires the aid of another person in order to perform personal functions required in everyday living, i.e. bathing, feeding, dressing, attending to the wants of nature, adjusting prosthetic devices, or protection from the hazards of their environment, or if bedridden, in a nursing home or blind.

Eligibility of a Veteran for the Housebound benefit depends if the veteran has a single permanent disability evaluated as 100-percent disabling and, due to such disability, they are permanently and substantially confined to their immediate premises, or, the veteran has a single permanent disability evaluated as 100-percent disabling and, another disability, or disabilities, evaluated as 60 percent or more.
