Veterans Qualify For Caregiver Financial Assistance

Veterans Benefits for Home CareOur gratitude to The Senior List for calling our attention to this subject.   It seems that very few veterans know about or take advantage of a valuable veteran's benefit.  

  A recent article in the NY Times New Old Age Blog was entitled “A Little-Known Benefit for Aging Veterans“. It discusses a veteran benefit few know anything about.   A Department of Veterans Affairs benefit called the Aid and Attendance and Housebound Improved Pension benefit, known as A&A, can cover the costs of caregivers in the home (including sons and daughters who are paid to be caregivers, though not spouses) or be used for assisted living or a nursing home.

To qualify, a veteran need not have suffered a service-related injury. He or she only had to have clocked at least one day of his or her 90-day minimum military service during a time of war and need caregiving for activities of daily living.

The process may be arduous and confusing, but the benefits could make a significant difference in the quality of care for the veteran, and peace of mind for caregivers.

Please refer to the resources listed below for more information.
