We feel privileged to provide home care for veterans who served our nation in its time of need.
Over 1.5 million wartime service veterans and their surviving spouses are eligible for billions of dollars a year in VA pensions to help pay for long-term care such as assisted living, nursing home and home care. The pensions are called “Aid and Attendance” and “Housebound.” Many are not getting the benefits they are eligible for, because they lack the knowledge of what programs are available and don’t know how to file for pension benefits.
Although many veterans are eligible for pensions, filling out the necessary forms and understanding the filing process can often be overwhelming and frustrating. We provide you with the information to work through the paperwork to help you avoid potential pension claim delays.
Once you become an approved participant in a VA program, we will provide the quality home care and companionship our veterans deserve.
SHHC is short-term health care services that can be provided to Veterans if they are homebound or live far away from VA. The care is delivered by a community-based home health agency that has a contract with VA.
SHHC is for Veterans who need skilled services, case management, and assistance with activities of daily living (e.g., bathing and getting dressed) or instrumental activities of daily living (e.g., fixing meals and taking medicines); are isolated or their caregiver is experiencing burden.
There are no strict thresholds for Domestic Assistance as it depends on your assessed need, taking into account VHC is not designed to meet complex or high-level care needs. This service is provided on a weekly or fortnightly basis, dependent on your assessed needs.
