Veterans care: For many, getting older often means struggling with activities of daily life and feeling isolated. Aging veterans face many of the same challenges that other elderly men and women face, but some may have difficulty asking for help or even accepting it. Some veterans may contemplate the possibility of home care, but assume it’s not reasonable to consider because of their financial circumstances.

Home Care: Veterans Care Support


This can leave them feeling frustrated, frightened, and even more alone than ever.

When a person realizes they are no longer safe on their own, struggle just to get out of bed, have extreme challenges making a healthy meal, it can feel frustrating. When they can’t get out to the store or visit with friends, it can be lonely.

Aging veterans face this and much more, every single day all across the country. Some just assume there’s no possible way they could pay for home care.  If they don’t have family or friends in the area to offer assistance they do the best they can. They may hunker down and just endure each day rather than living life to its fullest.


Then, for some, something amazing happens.

Some elderly veterans who served at least one day of active duty during a time of war hear about Pension with Aid and Attendance. The Aid and Attendance benefit is a VA benefit used for home care. It is an increased monthly pension amount that can be available when an elderly veteran or surviving spouse requires the ‘aid and attendance’ of another person. There are conditions that veterans must meet to be eligible for this benefit.

When elderly veterans learn about the Aid and Attendance Benefit and apply for it, they feel wonderful. They feel rejuvenated. They feel as though they’ve been given a new lease on life and are able to once again participate in activities and feel confident they will be safe at home and experience a better quality of life.
