VA Benefits: Aid & Attendance & Homemaker Benefit
Wartime veterans and their surviving spouses, 65 years and older, may be entitled to a tax-free benefit called Aid and Attendance provided by the Department of Veteran Affairs.
The Benefit, part of the Veterans Benefit Program, is designed to provide financial aid to help offset the cost of long-term care for those who need assistance with the daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring.
American Veterans Aid, a private company, is dedicated to helping war era veterans and their surviving spouses receive this Benefit they so deserve.
A Homemaker or Home Health Aide is a trained person who can come to a Veteran's home and help the Veteran take care of himself and perform his daily activities. Homemakers and Home Health Aides are not nurses, but they are supervised by a registered nurse who will help assess the Veteran's daily living needs. This program is for Veterans who need skilled services, case management, and help with activities of daily living. Examples include help with bathing, dressing, fixing meals, or taking medicines. This program is also for Veterans who are isolated or their caregiver is experiencing burden. Homemaker and Home Health Aide services can be used in combination with other Home and Community Based Services.
Homemaker Home Health Aides work for an organization that has a contract with VA. A Homemaker or Home Health Aide can be used as a part of an alternative to nursing home care, and as a way to get Respite Care at home for Veterans and their family caregiver. The services of a Homemaker or Home Health Aide can help Veterans remain living in their own home and can serve Veterans of any age.
A Caring Hand is contracted with the Twin Falls VA to provide Home Health Aids to Veterans who qualify. For more information about how to get these benefits please contact A Caring Hand. 208-736-4903
