Veteran’s Resources Information



FREE SERVICE: This program is designed for Veterans and families who need information and referrals to the appropriate VA facility in order to apply for benefits.

The Veteran’s benefit is designed to provide financial assistance to help cover the cost of long term care in the home, in an Assisted Living Facility or in a Skilled Nursing Home.

The benefit is for Veterans and surviving spouses who require a caregiver in at least two of the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).  Some of those ADLs are dressing, bathing, cooking, eating, grooming, transportation, etc.

This benefit is called Aid and Attendance and a Veteran or a surviving spouse never has to pay it back or pay taxes on it.

There are certain requirements that one has to meet in order to receive this benefit.  Some of them are:

  1. Must have served at least 90 days of active duty and one of those days must be during war time.
  2. Must have anything other than a dishonorable discharge.
  3. Surviving spouse must have been married to Veteran at the time of his passing.
  4. Must need assistance with at least two ADLs.
  5. Must meet income and asset criteria required by the VA.
  6. Must be at least 65 years old or totally disabled.
