What is Veterans In-Home Care?

Veterans in-home care is a specialized service provided by our team at Comfort Keepers that focuses on meeting the unique needs of retired military personnel. This program offers non-medical assistance to veterans who wish to age in the comfort of their own homes while receiving the support they require.

Our trained caregivers understand the specific challenges that veterans may face and work closely with them to develop personalized care plans that suit their individual needs. These care plans can include services such as companionship, meal preparation, transportation, light housekeeping, and assistance with personal care tasks like bathing and dressing.

Our veterans' in-home care provides total flexibility for veterans and their families. Our caregivers can adapt their schedules to accommodate veterans' changing needs, ensuring they receive the right level of support at all times. This service is also designed to improve veterans' quality of life by promoting social engagement, independence, and well-being.

Comfort Keepers is an approved provider for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and various state programs, which means that eligible veterans may be able to receive financial assistance to help cover the costs of in-home care services.

At Comfort Keepers, we are proud to offer compassionate veterans' in-home care, providing retired military personnel with the support they need to age with dignity, independence, and comfort in the familiar surroundings of their own homes.

What Benefits are Available for Veterans In-Home Care?

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides a range of benefit programs that support veterans' in-home care needs. These programs aim to ensure that veterans can receive the care they need in the comfort of their own homes.

What is the Aid & Attendance Benefit?

The Aid & Attendance Benefit is a financial assistance program provided by the VA in the United States. It is aimed at helping veterans and their spouses who require assistance with activities of daily living or those residing in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. This benefit provides an additional monthly cash payment to eligible veterans and their surviving spouses on top of their existing VA pensions or compensation.

The Aid & Attendance Benefit is designed to help individuals who cannot perform daily tasks such as dressing, bathing, and eating or require constant supervision due to a mental or physical disability. It helps cover the costs associated with long-term care, including nursing homes, assisted living communities, home health aide services, and adult day care.

To be eligible for this benefit, the applicant must meet certain criteria. They must be a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran who served at least 90 consecutive days on active duty, with at least one day served during a period of war. The veteran must also have a non-service-connected disability and meet specific income and asset limitations outlined by the VA.

What is the Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care Program?

The VA Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care Program is a service designed to assist individuals who require support in managing their daily activities and maintaining their homes. This program is primarily targeted toward the elderly, disabled, or those recovering from an illness or injury who may find it challenging to complete tasks independently.

Homemakers and home health aides provide essential non-medical assistance to veterans in need. Their responsibilities may include light housekeeping duties, such as cleaning, laundry, and meal preparation, as well as personal care tasks like bathing, dressing, and grooming. Additionally, they may help with grocery shopping, running errands, and providing companionship to individuals who may feel isolated.

The goal of the Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care Program is to improve the quality of life for veterans who require assistance in their homes. By providing necessary support, veterans and their spouses can remain in their own homes and communities rather than moving into assisted living facilities or nursing homes. This promotes independence and helps maintain a sense of familiarity and comfort for those receiving care.
