Our nation’s veterans qualify for unique senior living benefits that can help veterans afford senior living care and services that they may otherwise not be able to afford.

veterans One such benefit is the Aid & Attendance Benefit. Veterans and surviving spouses who are eligible for a VA pension and require the “aid and attendance” of another person may be eligible to receive an additional monetary payment to help cover the cost of services. This benefit is specifically for war-time veterans and their spouses to fund senior housing needs. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the following conditions must be met to qualify for the benefit:

 

  • You must require the aid of another person to perform the activities required in everyday living, such as bathing, feeding, dressing, and protection
  • You are bedridden
  • You are a patient in a nursing home due to mental or physical incapacity
  • Your eyesight is limited to a corrected 5/200 or less in both eyes or concentric contraction of the visual to 5 degrees or less

The Village at Mill Landing has invited Paula D’Angelo from the local Veteran’s Service Agency to speak about the Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit. Paula D’Angelo is a local expert on the benefit and she has experience in helping veterans claim this often overlooked benefit. Following the seminar, she will host a Q&A.

The Village at Mill Landing will be hosting an informational seminar on the Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit on Wednesday, November 28 at 6:00 pm. RSVP before 26 November to (585) 720-3033 to attend this free community event!
