Comfort Home Care Assistance for Veterans in Scarborough, ME and Surrounding Areas

Veterans in Scarborough, ME can qualify for comfort home care assistance benefits from the VA

America's veterans gave their best to preserve our nation's freedom. Comfort Keepers is proud to help American veterans maintain their freedom, independence, and quality of life. Three out of four seniors over the age of 65 will require assistance with daily living activities. Half will need help with two or more of them. What many seniors do not know is that the US veterans may qualify for financial assistance from the Veterans Administration (VA) to help pay for these expenses.

If your senior loved one served at least three months on active duty with at least one day occurring during a period of war and received an honorable discharge, they may be able to receive VA support. Granted, they still must meet certain financial criteria and have a documented physical need for in-home care services. If they do qualify for veteran’s care, their spouse is also eligible for services.

Comfort home care assistance consultants will help seniors put together an application packet for benefits. For example, they will help them gather all the needed documentation, such as discharge papers, social security information, marriage and/or divorce papers, financial documentation, and, if applicable, a death certificate of the veteran so their surviving spouse can receive benefits.

Some of the benefits your senior loved one may qualify for include light housekeeping and laundry services, meal preparation, local transportation assistance, and personal care services, such as transferring and positioning, bathing, grooming, and dressing. Comfort home care assistance also provides hospital to home transitioning, respite care support, end of life care, and specialized dementia and Alzheimer's care.

Your loved one can benefit from comfort home care assistance for veterans. If you think they may qualify for assistance through the Veterans Administration or to learn more about the many services available, give a Comfort Keepers senior care coordinator a call today.
