Did you know that Veterans benefits may be available to you for certain types of senior living?
Veterans Affairs has established an “Aid and Attendance” benefits program to assist eligible veterans and dependents who are entitled to VA pension or VA compensation. The “Aid and Attendance” benefit provides funding for qualified individuals who need intermediate or skilled nursing care.
In order to qualify for the “Aid and Attendance” benefit:
1. You must be a veteran who served at least 90 days in active duty with at least one day served during wartime; and was honorably discharged.
2. You must be a surviving spouse of a veteran currently receiving nursing care or aid and attendance services.
Some income restrictions apply.
Brookdale is committed to working closely with local county Veterans Service Officers or local VA representatives to help qualified, prospective residents receive “Aid and Attendance” or any other benefits resulting from military service.
