Paying for Private Duty Home Care in Frankenmuth, MI Through the Aid & Attendance Program

The Aid & Attendance program can help elderly veterans in Frankenmuth, Saginaw, Bay City and surrounding communities in MI pay for private duty home care from Visiting Angels

Elderly veterans and/or their surviving spouses receiving Veterans Affairs pensions may be eligible for additional financial assistance from the VA if they require the aid and attendance of another individual or if they are housebound.

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 to one’s pension. Furthermore, a veteran or their surviving spouse may not receive Aid and Attendance benefits and Housebound benefits at the same time.

If your senior loved one is an eligible veteran, Visiting Angels can help. Besides providing quality private duty home care services, Visiting Angels helps aging adults in the Great Lakes Bay area navigate the process of filing paperwork for VA benefits.

Is My 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 require private duty home care services such as assistance with bathing, feeding, dressing, toileting, mobility and other activities of daily living (ADL)
  • If they are bedridden or disabled
  • If they are a senior patient in a nursing home due to mental or physical incapacity
  • If they have a fairly limited vision (5/200 visual acuity or less in both eyes)

To help offset some portion of care costs, permanently disabled senior veterans may receive an increased monthly pension when they are homebound.
