For veterans who prefer to age in place, Aid & Attendance benefits can help subsidize home care costs for them and their spouses!
Veteran’s Aid & Attendance Benefits can help subsidize home care costs
You served our country, now it’s time for your military benefits to serve you!
As a veteran, you may be eligible to receive long-term care services and home healthcare through the VA if you are signed up for VA benefits and it is concluded that you need additional care to keep you safe and independent at home.
You may be surprised to learn that there are spousal benefits included with your VA benefits package as well!
To qualify for Aid & Attendance benefits, you or a spouse must meet at least one of the following requirements:
- Be bedridden except for medical & therapy appointments and treatments
- Have severe visual impairment
- Reside in a nursing home because of physical or mental incapacity, including Alzheimer’s and Dementia
- Require help with some activities of daily living (ADLs) such as, but not limited to, bathing, dressing, eating, using the bathroom etc.
