If you are a veteran facing the high cost of long-term care, the Veterans Aid and Attendance program could provide assistance. Paying for assisted living facilities, adult daycare or skilled nursing, can be a costly experience. Veterans or their surviving spouse with a limited income may be eligible to receive relief. There are three levels of VA Pensions:
- Basic Pension / Improved Income – for healthy veterans over the age of 65 with low incomes
- Aid & Attendance – for veterans over the age of 65 that require assistance with their activities of daily living
- Housebound – for veterans with a disability rating of 100% that prevents them from leaving their home, but does not have to be related to their military service.
