How Do You Access VA Benefits to Pay for Care at Home?

by | Apr 1, 2020 | Aging Parents, EC-VABenefitsPage, Elder Care Advising

One of the biggest challenges people face as they age is finding the care they need and then paying for that care. It’s something that the majority of Americans struggle with at some point in their life.

A lot of those who are aging and need care right now are veterans. Sadly, most of them are unaware that they have access to a benefit that can help pay for in-home care (even care from a loved one).

This benefit is called Aid & Attendance, and it’s something these veterans earned by serving their country during wartime.

If you served for one day during a wartime period, even if you did not set foot on foreign soil, then you may be eligible.

VA accredited attorneys, like the ones at Edwards Group, are uniquely qualified to help guide families through the maze-like process of applying for VA benefits.
