Veterans Care For Senior Service Members In Hilliard, OH
Find out how service men and women in Hilliard, OH can get the veterans care they need to enjoy their golden years
There are a few days set aside in our nation's calendar to honor America's veterans: Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, Pearl Harbor Day, and so forth. Yet, there are many more ways to honor our nation's veterans. For example, Comfort Keepers strives to ensure the freedom and independence of senior veterans when they need support and assistance with daily living activities or personal care. Caregivers also work with veterans to find financial assistance through the Veterans Administration.
Many veterans are unaware of the services available to them. Seniors may understand that they need support, such as light housekeeping, personal and companion care, respite care, or even specialized services like Alzheimer’s care, transitioning home care, and end of life care. What seniors may not understand is that there may be assistance available to help offset the costs of these services. For example, only honorably discharged veterans who served a minimum of three months, with at least one day occurring during wartime, are eligible for VA benefits. Seniors must also demonstrate a need for non-medical in-home care and show that they cannot cover the costs of veterans care on their own.
If your senior loved on could benefit from in-home care and you believe they may qualify for veterans care, contact a Comfort Keepers care coordinator. They will be happy to schedule a free in-home consultation, get to know your loved one, and match them with a suitable caregiver. Comfort Keepers will also help your loved one with the VA application process. This may include gathering necessary documentation, completing paperwork, and helping with the submission of the VA packet.
If a veteran qualifies for service, their surviving spouse can also receive VA benefits.
