“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.” ― Ronald Reagan
Comfort Keepers of Pitman, NJ is honored to provide seniorcare services for America's aging veterans. Statistically, most seniors are going to require some degree of living assistance, and the costs of these services can add up. For many, they can even become overwhelming. The good news is that many veterans and their surviving spouses may qualify for financial assistance from the Veterans Administration (VA).
Seniors who believe they and/or their spouse may qualify for veteran’s care should contact a Comfort Keepers senior home care coordinator. They will be happy to schedule a free in-home consultation and help determine if they qualify for services. Care providers will also help seniors collect necessary documentation, prepare forms, and file their paperwork.
Documents that need to be presented and/or submitted to the VA include proof of service and an honorable discharge (service needs to be at least ninety days on active duty, one day of which was during a period of war), marriage and/or divorce papers, social security numbers, and personal finance records. The senior must also be able to show a documented physical need for non-medical seniorcare services.
Seniors who qualify for veteran’s care can have some or all their in-home care expenses covered. This may include housekeeping and laundry support, meal preparation, and local transportation. I can also cover personal care and other long-term care services. The type, amount, and length of care are dependent upon individual circumstances.
If your loved one or their qualifying spouse requires help working with the VA to determine eligibility for veteran’s care or needs help completing and submitting the proper paperwork, contact a Comfort Keepers representative today. Our care consultants can help veterans get the seniorcare services they deserve.
