VetAssist helps with home care
There comes a time in a lot of people’s lives that they can’t do things for themselves as well as they used to, or even at all — they need help with the basics, like eating, bathing or walking.
For veterans, this need exists while they’re waiting for VA benefits to be delivered to them, but many believe they can’t afford the care.
But help is there, thanks to a little-known benefit. VetAssist, a program of Veterans Home Care, a national organization whose stated mission is “To assist veterans who protected our freedom to stay in their homes and live with dignity.
“VetAssist Program helps veterans, or their surviving spouses, apply for a little-known Department of Veterans Affairs benefit to pay for assistance with activities of daily living,” the website reads.
“Then, we provide home care while the VA reviews the claim. The VetAssist Program also furnishes continuing case management and ongoing compliance monitoring — all with no out-of-pocket costs.
“An estimated two million wartime veterans or their widows are eligible for the ‘Aid and Attendance’ pension to help pay for home care. You, or someone you love, might be one of them.”
