At Comfort Keepers of Vancouver, we are proud to provide care for unselfish and brave people who served our country. Cost of in-home care is not easy to handle. That is why veterans and their surviving spouses have the opportunity to qualify for Veterans Administration (VA) benefits. This type of help for seniors will cover at least some costs of care services.
In the following cases, your loved one may qualify for help for seniors.
- If your senior has served no less than ninety days of active duty (one day in those 90 days must be during a period of war)
- If your senior meets financial criteria
- If your senior has an acknowledged physical need for (non-medical) in-home senior care services
Your loved one should be prepared for gathering all kinds of proper documentation and submitting it to a VA officer. This is essential so that your senior could be considered for VA benefits.
The documentation may include: original discharge certificate, personal finance records, marriage certificate and/or divorce papers from a prior marriage(s), death certificate of the veteran, social security numbers for your senior loved one and their spouse and similar documents.
We are happy to be of service to your senior loved one, and we will help them gather the documentation needed for the application. If your senior finds an obstacle in completing the VA paperwork packet, we will find a help for seniors organization to assist them.
