Veterans Home Care Services

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 is 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)
