Many senior veterans are eligible for assisted living benefits & financial aid

December 7th is observed annually in the U.S as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. This national day of remembrance allows us to honor the more than 2,000 American citizens who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Our nation is grateful for the brave men and women who lost their lives on this infamous day. [Source]

While Pearl Harbor Day honors specifically those in the military who were killed during the attack, it is natural to think of the veterans in our own lives on this day. You may feel grateful for their service and happy that they returned home safely after their service. If you have a senior loved one who is a veteran, you may also be concerned for their health and well-being as they age.

There are a variety of health and senior care benefits available for senior veterans and, often times, their surviving spouses. This type of assistance is meant to help senior veterans receive the care they have earned through their selfless service to our country. Assisted living facilities and providers can help you determine if your senior loved one is eligible for any veteran’s benefits.

Aid & Attendance Benefit to Pay for Assisted Living

The Aid & Attendance veterans benefit increases the monthly pension amount for qualified seniors. Some factors that determine eligibility include a need for financial income, whether or not the veteran was honorably discharged, need for care, and impact on quality of life. For complete information on eligibility and application information, visit the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs website by clicking here.

When the time comes to consider an assisted living facility for your senior loved one, veterans benefits like Aid & Attendance may be able to supplement costs. As you research assisted living facilities in Wichita, KS, ask if they accept these benefits. Often, senior care providers can refer clients to resources that help with the application process for veterans benefits. [Source]
