Comfort Keepers Veterans Aid and Attendance in Del Mar, CA
Read how veterans aid and assistance can be made available to our brave service men and women.
Many American veterans require some degree of in-home care to remain independent, safe, and enjoy a high quality of life. Sadly, for many of these veterans, the cost of this care can be overwhelming. Thankfully, many may qualify for Veterans Administration (VA) benefits, which can cover some costs of in home care.
Veterans aid and attendance is generally available for seniors who served at least ninety days of active duty military service, if at least one day of that service occurred during a period of war. There are also certain financial criteria that must be met unless a physical need for non-medical in-home care is documented. If your senior loved one needs assistance communicating with the VA, filling out paperwork, or gathering documentation, Comfort Keepers veterans care may be able to help.
How Can I Receive Veterans Aid and Attendance in Del Mar, CA?
The process starts with a confidential, private, in-home meeting with your loved one to help determine the level of support they need. Standard documentation includes an original military discharge certificate, marriage certificate and/or divorce papers, social security numbers, and a death certificate of the veteran if services are for the widowed spouse of a qualified veteran.
Once qualified for veteran’s aid and attendance, the VA will cover some or all the costs of in-home care services, care-related transportation, and other long-term senior care services. Services and supports can be full-time or part-time, depending on the senior's specific situation and typically range from light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation to medication management and companion care. With Comfort Keepers, services are available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year to meet each senior's unique needs.
