Take Advantage of Our Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit
If you are a Veteran or surviving spouse, you may be eligible for the Veterans Aid & Attendance benefit. This benefit, offered by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), provides monthly payments added to the amount of the monthly VA pension for qualified Veterans or surviving spouses. Millions of Veterans have earned this important benefit that can help them and their families pay for senior care — but many people don’t know about it.
The Aid & Attendance pension is a tax-free benefit paid directly to the qualified Veteran or spouse. The monthly benefits are subject to change annually.
Please inquire with the local sales teams in regard to white-glove relocation services. Because we understand that relocating from your home into senior living can be stressful for you and your loved one, we have aligned with reputable local moving companies to offer a turnkey relocation service.
