Veterans Assistance

Veterans Assistance

The Veterans Administration has a program that can help provide financial assistance for senior care for a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran. The program is known as the Aid & Attendance Benefit. It is part of a veteran’s pension or in connection with a service-related injury.

Please speak with your VA assigned physician or social worker to check on eligibility.
