Most Veterans are unaware that the Veterans Administration has benefits that pay for in home care providers and Assisted Living Facilities.
At Senior Life Care Planning we utilize these VA programs to help Veterans achieve financial peace and mind and to ensure their quality of life. “We are outreaching to Veterans so they know these VA benefits are available to them” states David Wingate, a VA Accredited Attorney.
The following information is obtained from the Veterans Administration website which describes the features of the VA benefits, (a) Aid and Attendance benefits and (b) Housebound benefits.
Eligibility of a Veteran for the Aid and Attendance benefit depends if the veteran requires the aid of another person in order to perform personal functions required in everyday living, such as bathing, feeding, dressing, attending to the wants of nature, adjusting prosthetic devices, or protecting himself/herself from the hazards of his/her daily environment, or the veteran is bedridden, in that his/her disability or disabilities requires that he/she remain in bed apart from any prescribed course of convalescence or treatment, or if the veteran is 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, he/she is permanently and substantially confined to his/her 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 disabling.
