Veteran Benefits for Live in Assistance in Whittier
Elderly Veteran Benefits Aid with Cost of Living
As an Elderly or Senior U.S. Veteran or spouse of a Veteran, you know how expensive daily living can be, especially when you have medical expenses and payments to make. Whether you served during World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War, or Gulf War, you may be eligible for monetary compensation from the Veteran Administration for your service to the country.
Elder Veterans may face more financial burden in old age because of low income from sacrificing a college education for providing dutiful service to their country. The Veteran Administration can provide two monetary payments to Elderly Veterans – Veterans’ Pension and the Aid and Attendance benefit that are offered to low-income Elder Veterans.
Whether you need an additional source of income to pay for recurring medical expenses or the services of an in-home caregiver, qualifying for one or both of the VA’s benefits can be a godsend. At A-1 Home Care, we provide consulting services for Elder and Senior Veterans or their spouses to see if they qualify for VA financial assistance, estimate how much monetary assistance they are eligible for, or help with any part of the application process.
