In Home Care Services for Senior Veterans Available in Federal Way, WA
Senior veterans may be eligible for in home care services and benefits
After serving their country and helping keep our citizens safe, the nation's veterans may be in need of some assistance as they age. Few are aware that they are in fact eligible for financial assistance for in home care services through VA benefits, and push off inquiring about home care until the last minute. Getting the financial assistance your loved one needs right now can help make a major difference in their lives, helping them stay independent and living in their own home for a long time.
Our trained professionals can help your loved one figure out if they can use their VA benefits to pay for in home care services. Generally speaking, if they meet the following criteria, they are eligible for VA benefits:
- They were in active duty for at least 90 days
- One of those days must have been during wartime
- If they were discharged, it must have been honorably
- They need home health care
- They do not have the funds to pay for care services out of their own pocket
Under the law, surviving spouses of deceased veterans who were eligible for VA benefits qualify for home health care as well. If your loved one is a veteran, or in fact a surviving spouse of a veteran, we can help them figure out if they can get their in home care services paid for.
In fact, our caregivers can help them every step of the way. This includes helping them gather documentation if they are not able to do so themselves. We can also help them apply and even take over the whole process ourselves. This is particularly helpful to seniors who have recently undergone a major medical event or are on bed rest or bedridden for the time being.
The care we provide for seniors who pay for it with VA benefits is the same care we provide for all of our other clients.
Our Interactive Caregiving brand of care includes a wide range of services and focuses on activity and nutrition. We are constantly looking for ways to help keep your loved one stay active and engaged. This has been shown to have a positive impact on both mental and physical wellbeing.
