What better way to honor a Veteran’s service than by ensuring that the Veterans that we love are well cared for. The costs of care are rising and it can be hard to keep up, but you can help. If you know of a Veteran, spouse or widow who is in need of assistance with their activities of daily living and their medical needs exceed their income then their military service could qualify them for a reimbursement pension through the VA, called Aid & Attendance, of up to approximately $2,000 per month.
There may be a way to help contribute to the costs of care of our Veterans, their spouses and widows, whether they live at home or in an Assisted Living facility. To be considered, the Veteran needs to have served at least 90 days of active duty, with one day during a war time (date specific), be 65 years or older or disabled, have limited resources and need assistance with at least two of the Activities of Daily Living, or ADL’s for short: feeding; toileting; dressing; grooming; incontinence; bathing; and transferring.
The Aid & Attendance Pension is a reimbursement program for medical and care costs that are already being incurred but is not dependent upon service-connected injuries for compensation. If you have any questions about whether or not a Veteran, their spouse or widow can qualify for this pension please contact us.
To all those Veterans who have served our Country so bravely, thank you for your service and Happy Veteran’s Day!
