Personalized Home Care Services for Senior Veterans in Chelsea, MA and Surrounding Areas
If you're a veteran and/or their surviving spouses receiving Veterans Affairs pensions, you may be eligible for the Aid and Attendance benefit. The VA will be paying for in-home care, so you can afford to save on the cost of sending someone else from your home.
Additionally, you can also receive benefits if you're a surviving spouse who needs help at home. Bear in mind that these benefits are an addition to a monthly pension to help offset the costs of in-home senior care and cannot be granted without eligibility for one's assistance.
Is My Senior Loved One Eligible for Aid & Attendance (A&A)?
Your senior loved one may be eligible to receive Aid & Attendance (A&A) benefits if they meet the following conditions:
- If they are bedridden or disabled
- If they require in-home care services such as assistance with bathing, feeding, dressing, toileting, mobility, and other activities of daily living (ADL)
- If they have reasonably limited vision (5/200 visual acuity or less in both eyes)
- If they are a senior patient in a nursing home due to mental or physical incapacity
To help offset some portion of care costs, permanently disabled senior veterans may receive an increased monthly pension when they are homebound.
