VA aid and attendance benefits can be a great source of funds to help pay for the cost of care at home, in independent living facilities, in assisted living facilities and in nursing homes. Veterans that suffer from chronic illness such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s, victims of strokes and falls… may be able to obtain veterans aid and attendance benefits. Aid and attendance benefits are available for veterans that need assistance with multiple daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating or maintaining continence… For those veterans who meet the VA’s qualifications militarily and financially these benefits can be a blessing.
In order for the veteran to qualify, then they must meet both military and financial requirements. Generally speaking to qualify militarily the veteran must have been honorably discharged and served for at least 90 days of active duty with at least one day during a war time period. To qualify financially the VA examines the veteran’s assets and income. In addition the VA looks as the veteran’s cost of care such as: assisted living costs, supportive living cost, nursing home cost and the cost for care givers at home. If married, then the veteran’s spouse’s asset’s income and cost of care are also factored into the equation. If the veteran qualifies for benefits, then the veteran will receive a monthly check to help pay for their cost of care. The benefit amount can be quite substantial.
