VA Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit
The Veterans Affairs Aid & Attendance Pension program offers families and individuals an additional method of meeting or reducing vital home care costs.
We help veterans, or their surviving spouses, apply for a little-known Department of Veterans Affairs benefit called “Aid and Attendance” that was created to help pay for assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs).
For those who qualify for in-home care services and family care givers for respite care we are a designated provider of service. We not only provide the home care service but we also take care of all the paperwork, financial and billing directly with the VA.
