VA Aid & Attendance

Guide to VA Benefits For Long-Term Care

More than one-third of Americans over 65 are either wartime veterans or are married to one.  If you know someone who falls into this category, they may qualify for benefits that can help offset the cost of senior care.  Veterans Aid & Attendance benefits can be used to help pay for in-home care, board and care, assisted living communities, and skilled nursing facilities.  Yet, less than 10 percent of those who qualify have even applied for Veterans Aid & Attendance.
