The holiday season is a time of giving, and it’s a great time to reconnect with family. As you reconnect with your relatives, have you noticed that one of your older family members needs help with day to day tasks? If they do need assistance, but they want to stay in their home, you could give them the gift of home care. And if your relative is a Veteran or surviving spouse, they may be eligible for pension benefits that can help your family afford home care services. Here’s what you should know about home care services if you want to give it as a gift this holiday season.
How AVCC Helps You Access Home Care
AVCC helps Veterans, surviving spouses and their families apply for the VA’s Aid and Attendance pension benefit. You and your loved one can put this monetary benefit toward home care services. We fill out the application forms and submit them for the benefits. Then we check up on the application as it goes through the approval process so the VA doesn’t reject it for any reason. Once the VA approves the application and the Veteran or surviving spouse starts receiving the Aid and Attendance pension benefit, we help you locate a home care provider in your area that meets their needs. We help you through both of these processes because we understand how hard the VA can be to navigate and how important it is to find the right local home care provider.
