Find out how veterans in Reno, NV can get access to the senior care services they need to remain independent at home
Comfort Keepers is proud to honor our nation's veterans. While there are many ways to do this, Comfort Keepers strives to ensure aging veterans receive the services and supports they need to maintain their freedom and independence.
As we age, many seniors require assistance with daily living tasks and personal care. Our nation's veterans are no different. From homemaking services to personal care, in-home supports enable seniors to safely remain in their own homes despite physical, emotional, or cognitive challenges. In addition to standard in-home supports, Comfort Keepers also provides Alzheimer's and dementia care, hospital to home transitioning, end of life care, and respite support.
While senior care services can greatly enhance the quality of an elder’s life, such care costs money. Many veterans do not realize that they qualify for VA benefits which may cover some or all their homecare expenses. Comfort Keepers veteran's care assistance helps with identification of benefits and getting the ball rolling. From assistance with the application process, gathering necessary documentation, and submitting paperwork to the VA.
There are requirements to qualify for senior care services through the VA. For example, the senior must have served at least three months in the armed services, with a minimum of one day during wartime and have been discharged honorably. Veterans must also show a physical and financial need for support. Should the veteran qualify for benefits, their surviving spouse will also qualify, and Comfort Keepers veteran's care is honored to help them as well.
