Understanding Transportation and Assisted Living
Perhaps two veteran's benefits that many clients are simply unaware of or don't understand involve financial assistance for what is called homebound aid, and aid and attendance:
- Homebound Aid Benefit: Because of its misleading name, this benefit is widely misunderstood by many veterans to mean aid is only available if they cannot leave their home. In reality, homebound aid simply means that an elderly veteran may require transportation assistance to and from their home. We help clients apply for and obtain this simple and valuable benefit to eliminate the need to rely solely on family or friends for their transportation needs.
- Aid and Attendance Benefit: This benefit applies to any veteran who plans to live in, or is currently living in an assisted living facility to have it covered as a medical expense. For veterans surviving a stroke or with service-related disability, qualification simply involves verification from their doctor that they require aid and attendance by others to meet safety, dietary and other elder care needs. We can help clients apply to receive up to $1,800 per month towards assisted living care in a nursing home or similar facility.
From knowledgeable assistance with VA planning for veteran's benefits that won't negatively impact Medicaid, to obtaining pension benefits and others under the Veterans Millennium Health Care and Benefits Act, our firm provides attentive legal help focused on bringing peace of mind, and improving you overall well-being.
