Veterans Home Care Assistance in Greater Alexandria, VA

Pension benefits for Veterans and their spouses so they can receive home care asssitance in Alexandria, Arlington, Springfield, and nearby cities

Veterans in our nation have put their lives at danger to protect our civil liberties. We have an obligation to help others. At Comfort Keepers, we tailor our veteran care to the unique needs of senior citizens who have served their country. We make sure that all of the veterans we look after have access to the best elder care available, provided by our caring carers.

Veterans have sacrificed so much for our country, yet many of them lack health insurance and cannot afford to pay for home care asssitance for elderly loved ones on their own. On the other hand, veterans and their surviving spouses may qualify for VA benefits, which typically cover at least a portion of the costs of veteran's care services.

Give us a call at (855) 335-3155 to learn more about our home care assistance!

What is the difference between VA Aid and Household Allowance?

Both VA Aid and Housebound Allowance increase the monthly pension amount paid to the Veteran or their surviving spouse in order to cover the costs of short and long term care.  The difference lies in the eligibility requirements.

VA Aid can be used for temporary illness or disability assistance and Housebound Allowance is only for permanent disabilities or illnesses.

What are VA Aid eligibility requirements?

You can be eligible for VA Aid if one or more of the following are true:

  • You require assistance from another to perform Activities For Daily Living (ADL’s)
  • You are primarily bedridden due to illness or a disability
  • You are in a nursing home for the loss of physical and mental abilities due to illness or a disability
  • Your eyesight is 5/200 or less in both eyes, even with glasses or contact lenses

What are Housebound Allowance eligibility requirements?

You can be eligible for Housebound Allowance if the following is true:

  • You have one or more disabilities that permanently confines you to the home or other living facility

Can I receive both the VA Aid and Housebound Allowance pension rates?

While you may be eligible for both, you cannot receive these rates at the same time.

How do I apply for VA Aid or Housebound Allowance?

You can apply to receive these Veterans home care assistance benefits by:

  • Sending a VA Form 21-2680 to your pension management center
  • Sending a VA Form 21-0779 to your pension management center (only for those in a nursing home)
