Can VA Benefits Help Pay for Home Care Services?
Many families worry about their ability to afford senior care services. However, affording care from Visiting Angels San Ramon can be made easy by looking into additional benefits.
Aid and Attendance benefits can help elderly veterans and surviving spouses pay for professional care at home. Aid and Attendance can be added to the monthly pension your loved one already receives through the VA in order to offset the cost of care.
Your loved one may be eligible for Aid and Attendance if they:
- Require assistance with activities of daily living
- Are bedridden or unable to move without assistance
- Are a patient in a nursing home
- Have specific vision limitations
If you’re unsure whether your loved one is eligible, Visiting Angels is here to help! Our team can help you determine your eligibility and guide you toward the right steps for applying for additional benefits.
