Many veterans are unaware of the long term or elder care benefits available to them through veterans’ health care, state veterans homes, home renovation grants (HISA grants), or through two disability income programs called Compensation and Pension. One particular program called Veterans Pension or more commonly known as the “Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit,” can provide money to pay for home care for veterans. Aid and Attendance can also be used to pay for long term care such as assisted living and nursing home care for a veteran or the veteran’s spouse.
But the process of documenting those needs and getting the approval of the Veterans Administration can be complex, intimidating, and extremely frustrating. Having a competent elder care attorney working with you with a knowledge and understanding of VA long term care benefits can make it much easier.
