​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Home Instead Bowling Green Veterans Care​​​Here at Home Instead Senior Care, we proudly care for our Veterans every day. We believe that our commitment to caring for their needs is one of the most important ways we can show just how much we appreciate their service to our country and protecting our freedom.

1 in 3 seniors in this country is a veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran.

These heroes – our fathers, mothers, spouses, and friends – may be eligible for a unique benefit through the VA called “Aid and Attendance.” This benefit provides funding of up to $25,020 a year to help keep loved ones safe and comfortable with home care.

Millions of qualifying veterans and families go without Aid and Attendance – simply because of a lack of information or a lack of help.

Through our partnership with Veterans Care Coordination, we are able to assist qualifying veterans and their spouses to apply for and obtain the Aid and Attendance Benefit through the Department of Veterans Affairs to help cover their medical expenses, including Home Instead Senior Care services.

What makes this partnership unique is the fact that Veterans Care Coordination can offer interest-free loan assistance to clients that cannot afford the up-front, out-of-pocket expense that is required.

Who's Eligible?

  • Veteran, or surviving spouse of a veteran, who served 90 consecutive days of active duty with at least 1 day during a wartime period
  • Veteran did not need to serve overseas
  • Veteran/surviving spouse must have non-service connected medical condition which is not related to military service
  • Veteran/surviving spouse must require assistance with daily activities, such as bathing, dressing, eating, medication management and personal care
  • Veteran/surviving spouse can have up to $80,000 in assets based on age/marital status (excludes home and car)
  • Veteran/surviving spouse must meet the Medical Expense-to-Income Ratio (i.e., home care services in place prior to application can count as a medical expense)

If you think you or your loved one may be an eligible candidate for this benefit please contact our Home Instead office at:

"As an 83 year old Alzheimer's patient and widow, my mother’s only request is that she be able to live the rest of her life in her home. Although she has seven surviving children we are spread all across the country. I live the closest to my mother and I live over 800 miles away. Our solution has been Home Instead senior care. Home Instead has enabled my mother to remain in her home. They provide us with 24/7 care for my mother, giving our family the peace of mind we need with our mother so far away. The CAREGivers are all wonderful. My mother refers to them as "her friends". The CAREGivers ensure all my mother’s needs are met. They prepare meals, help maintain the house, take my mother shopping and to her doctors’ appointments and keep her engaged in activities throughout the day. The one on one care provided by the Home Instead CAREGivers is at a level that could only be matched by family."

“I  just love Mary, my CAREGiver.  She does a good job and is good with me.  She’s a good cook and has a lot of patience  I’m really pleased with her.  I need the VA to pay for my care.  It’s very well worth it and it has helped me so much.  I couldn’t do without it.”
– Edith B.

“I’m doing well with my CAREGiver. She is easy to get along with. My CAREGiver will clean the bathroom, run the sweeper, provide transportation. She stays busy all the time. I wouldn’t be able to pay for services without the VA paying for it. My daughter told me about it. I would tell anyone looking for help that Home Instead is a good service.”
