We are committed to serving those who have served our country, ensuring they receive the personalized care and attention they deserve.

Many elderly individuals in the United States have valiantly served in the armed forces and may qualify for VA benefits that can assist with covering the expenses of in-home care. As the current generation of seniors reaches a stage where they require daily care and support, an increasing number are opting for home care instead of relocating to nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Eligible senior citizens can utilize their VA benefits to help cover the costs of home care services and respite care, offered by Assisting Hands.

Home Care by Assisting Hands

Assisting Hands Home Care is dedicated to providing comprehensive VA home health care and respite care services in Lyndhurst, NJ exclusively for eligible veterans of the armed forces and their spouses who qualify for VA pension benefits. Our team of licensed and professional caregivers will provide personalized home care services, while veterans can utilize their VA benefits to cover the associated costs.

VA Pension with Aid and Attendance Benefit

Eligible veterans and their spouses may qualify for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ VA pension with Aid and Attendance benefit, offering up to $2,200 per month. These benefits can be used to cover part-time home care. Despite the significant number of seniors who are eligible for these benefits as veterans or spouses of veterans, only half a million seniors currently receive them.

Challenges to Obtaining VA Benefits

Numerous factors contribute to the underutilization of VA benefits among eligible seniors. First, there is a general lack of awareness about the existence and advantages of these benefits. Additionally, the inconvenience associated with applying for benefits at a VSO office is a significant deterrent. Long queues and the need for multiple visits create obstacles to obtaining the rightful benefits. Moreover, seniors are often misinformed about their eligibility or believe that they may only receive a partial benefit.

Assisting Hands Home Care collaborates with the Care Planning Institute (CPI) to assist veterans and surviving spouses in obtaining the VA Pension with Aid and Attendance Benefit. The knowledgeable VA benefits agents at CPI work independently of the VA to ensure that senior veterans and their spouses receive the benefits they deserve, all from the comfort of their own homes.

Requirements for VA Pension with Aid and Attendance Benefits

Senior veterans and the spouses of veterans must meet the following requirements to be eligible for VA benefits:

  • Must be 65 or older
  • Veteran must have served during wartime
  • Veteran must have at least 90 days of active duty, including one day during wartime
  • Must have an honorable discharge
  • Spouse is a widow of an eligible wartime veteran
  • Must need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Must have $123,600 or less in assets (home, vehicles, and personal property do not count)
  • Must have a monthly income of no more than $3000 as a couple, $2600 as a single veteran, and $2000 as a surviving spouse

After eligible seniors receive their benefits, the VA has the authority to conduct audits to verify that they still meet the necessary requirements for eligibility. Proper documentation must be provided by seniors to demonstrate their ongoing eligibility, as failure to do so could result in loss of benefits. CPI’s VA benefits agents collaborate with veterans and their spouses to ensure they consistently meet the requirements and possess the required documentation to substantiate their eligibility.

Eligible veterans who are enrolled in VA benefits are required to undergo a comprehensive evaluation for geriatric extended care (GEC) and demonstrate a dependency on 3 or more ADLs or significant cognitive impairment.

VA Respite Care Program

If veterans require short-term home care, they can use their VA pension benefits for our VA respite care program.
