For Our Veterans
Veterans Aid and Attendance Program
The Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Program (A&A) provides benefits for veterans and surviving spouses who require regular assistance with activities of daily living. The care provided in an assisting living community may also qualify.
Common examples of required assistance include dressing, bathing, cooking, removing prosthetics, transportation and medication management. A&A applicants must be able to provide written confirmation from a physician asserting a need for assistance with any combination of these activities.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the US Department of Veterans Affairs or U.S. Senior Vets, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, whose primary function is to educate Veterans, surviving spouses, and their families in obtaining Aid Attendance and Housebound Pension Benefits, with questions regarding the A&A qualification and application process. If you’d like to be put in touch with a local Aid and Attendance representative, contact us today.
