Private Home Care Services & Assistance for Senior Veterans in Monroe, MI
Visiting Angels helps families in Monroe, MI apply for Home Health Aide (HHA) and Respite Care Services in order to offset the cost of private home care services for loved ones who have served in the United States military
If you are searching for private home care assistance for a senior loved one who served in the United States military, there is a good possibility that they may qualify for Veterans Benefits through the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).
Home Health Aide Visits & Respite
HHA visits are designed to help a Veteran live independently in their own home, by assisting with everyday needs called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Respite visits are provided to relieve the primary caregiver, often a spouse, sibling, adult child, or other family member. Both HHA and Respite visits are vital to the overall plan of care.
Since HHA & Respite services are part of the VHA Standard Medical Benefits Package, enrolled Veterans are eligible, if they meet the clinical need for the service, regardless of the Veteran's age or nature of disability.
If approved, you may receive help with:
- Personal needs - getting dressed, bathing, and dementia care
- Medication reminders and assistance with incontinence needs
- Running errands and getting to appointments
- Cooking meals, light housekeeping, and laundry
- Added companionship and ambulation needs
The disability does not have to be service-related. Visits for HHA & Respite assistance are billed directly to the VA - not the Veteran!
