Honoring Our Veterans: Aid & Attendance Benefits with VetAssist® Program

We are proud to partner with the VetAssist® Program by Veterans Home Care to help wartime veterans and their families access well-deserved home care assistance.

Are you a wartime veteran, or the surviving spouse of one?

You may be eligible for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)’s “Aid & Attendance” pension, a benefit that can help cover the costs of in-home care. We can work with the VetAssist® Program to assist you in applying for this pension and get started with home care services even before the VA processes your claim.
