At Golden Heart Senior Care, we are proud to offer our home health care services to seniors who served our country. If you or a senior loved one is a United States military veteran, you may be eligible for veteran benefits, including free home care.
Home health care services can improve your or your loved one’s quality of life in many ways. A professional caregiver can help with activities that have become too demanding or time-consuming for you. A loving care expert can also provide companionship and other services that can allow you to safely remain in the comfort of your home.
In case you have a medical condition or limited mobility that may prevent you from collecting all the necessary resources to apply for the type of care you need, we can help! We can also offer assistance with the application process itself, which can allow you to receive care in the shortest time frame possible. With us, you can apply for these benefits completely free of charge.
At Golden Heart Senior Care, we are dedicated to spreading the word about veteran benefits because many seniors, unfortunately, do not know that the VA’s Aid and Attendance benefit can also cover the cost of home health care services. The amount you can get for care depends on your specific case. It is also good to know that the amount you receive for care is tax-free. You will receive the money directly once your case has been evaluated.
How to Receive Home Health Care Services Benefits
To receive veteran benefits, you have to meet certain requirements. To begin with, only veterans who have actively served in the military for a minimum of 90 days, including at least one day during wartime, are eligible for the benefit. Also, only veterans who have been honorably discharged from the military can receive the benefit. Finally, as the benefit aims to help veterans who cannot take care of themselves on their own, only veterans who need assistance with activities of daily living can qualify for the benefit.
Also, keep in mind that the surviving spouses of eligible veterans can also apply for this benefit. The only condition is that they were still married to the veteran when they passed away.
If you or a loved one meets these requirements, you could receive home health care services ranging from 46-86 hours a month.
