Veterans benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) allow elderly and disabled men and women who served in the military to take advantage of valuable health care services and living assistance.

Understanding Transportation And Assisted Living
Perhaps two veterans 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 that aid is available only if they cannot leave home. In reality, homebound aid simply means that an elderly veteran may require transportation assistance to and from 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 toward assisted living care in a nursing home or similar facility.
Our firm provides attentive legal help focused on bringing peace of mind and improving your overall well-being. We can give you knowledgeable assistance with VA planning for veterans benefits that won't negatively impact Medicaid and help you obtain pension benefits and others under the Veterans Millennium Health Care and Benefits Act.
