Home Care for Veterans

Visiting Angels
Huntsville, AL

Older adults who served in the U.S. military don’t always know that they may be eligible for in-home personal care benefits through the Veterans Administration (VA). As veterans age, the need for personalized senior care can become a major concern for them and their families. The financial burden of this type of care can be enormous.

Visiting Angels of Huntsville, AL contracts with the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs, and can help eligible veterans and surviving spouses with daily care tasks, such as:

  • Preparing meals
  • Medication reminders
  • Respite care
  • Eating
  • Getting dressed
  • Hygiene
  • Companionship
  • Using the toilet
  • Moving around the house
  • Transportation services
  • Personal care

A free veterans’ home care consultation with Visiting Angels is the first step toward finding the care you or your loved one needs. During this appointment, we will talk about your qualifications for veterans’ benefits as well as the application process.

Contact Visiting Angels today to learn more about their Veterans Affairs Supportive Home Care program and how they can help, at no cost to you.

Huntsville’s Veteran Care Community

In Abilene we love partnering with our friends at Huntsville Vet Center, Huntsville VA Regional Benefit Office, VA Website for HHA and many others as we provide excellent veteran services.

How Can I Qualify for Veterans’ Home Care?

U.S. military veterans in Huntsville, AL may qualify for benefits through the Aid and Attendance or the Community Care Network programs.

The Homemaker and Home Health Aide (H/HHA) program is available to veterans free of charge, as it is covered by the VA healthcare system. However, veterans may be responsible for a copayment for certain services, depending on their income level and other factors.

The VA decides if you are eligible for the H/HHA program, as well as which types of services are needed. To access this program, veterans in Huntsville, AL can reach out to us and allow us to work with you and your VA medical team. We will partner with you to create a customized care plan that fits your needs and wishes.

Benefits of Veterans’ Home Care

Quality of life improves for our clients and their families when they start home health care services. Visiting Angels of Huntsville, AL is proud to serve veterans of any age; our professional caregivers are here to make your everyday work for you, in the comfort of your own home.

Less Stress

The move to an assisted living facility can be very stressful for anyone; this kind of change is especially difficult for those who may already feel isolated from disability or disoriented from cognitive decline. Domiciliary care is a good option to reduce stress and ensure that veterans get the help they need with activities of daily living, as well as skilled nursing care.


Our caregivers strive to foster an environment where our clients maintain their autonomy and dignity in their own homes. When seniors feel empowered, they are more able to be themselves and connect with friends, family, and their care providers for a meaningful life filled with good company and self-direction.

Respite Care

Respite care is a necessity when family members cannot provide for care needs without experiencing burnout. When family caregivers are overloaded in trying to provide care, everyone's quality of life suffers. Our home health aides are the solution.

Daily Tasks

When age and disability make it hard to keep up with basic tasks, quality of life declines, as can mental health. Home care providers help with every aspect of everyday life, which provides relief and the ability to focus on the activities that our clients enjoy and are able to accomplish. We've found that relieving the pressure of day-to-day tasks like meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, and personal care goes a long way to improving daily life.

Specialized Care

Beyond personal care services, we proved a wide range of home care services and are also able to help with more complex needs, such as:

  • Palliative Care
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Hospice Care
  • End of Life Care
  • Memory Care
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Long-Term Care Services

When is the Right Time for Veterans to Apply For VA Home Care Benefits?

Application processing times can be extended, so the best time to apply for home care benefits through the VA is well before they are needed. Otherwise, there is a risk of needing to pay high out of pocket costs for veterans’ home care while you wait for approval. Visiting Angels of Huntsville, AL can help with every step of the way.

Reach out today to find out how we can help you, free of charge.
