Comfort Keepers of Rockford, IL is a proud member of the American Veterans Care Connection network. As such, Comfort Keepers strives to ensure that America's veterans receive the highest quality care and assistance in their time of need.

Veterans are often not aware of the services and supports that are available to them. For example, many US veterans are eligible for financial assistance through the Veterans Association (VA) to help cover at home senior care expenses. Comfort Keepers veterans care staff will help veterans and their surviving spouses determine eligibility for support, collect documents, and apply for assistance.
To qualify for VA support, seniors must have served at least 90 days on active duty with at least one day occurring during wartime. They must have separated with an honorable discharge. Surviving spouses of qualified veterans may also be eligible for at home senior care. Of course, there are also financial and medical requirements that must be met.
When a veteran starts working with Comfort Keepers, a home care assistance coordinator will meet with them in their home. After discussing care, a plan is created to collect documentation and submit paperwork. Standard documentation includes an original military discharge certificate, marriage certificate and/or divorce papers, social security numbers, and a death certificate of the veteran if services are for the widowed spouse of a qualified veteran. With help navigating the system, seniors can receive care in the fastest time possible.
