VA Assisted Living Benefit (Aid & Attendance) for Military Veterans and Their Spouses

va aid & attendance Alzheimer's Disease Dementia CaregivingI discuss this benefit in great detail in my book, Going Gentle Into That Good Night, as far as what’s needed to apply, some caveats with regard to obtaining military records, how to expedite the process, as well as how to calculate the full cost of care.

But, I wanted to at least mention here that a Veteran’s Affairs benefit for military veterans and their spouses for help with assisted living costs is available if the veteran served during a war (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc.).

To take advantage of it for our loved ones with dementias, Alzheimer’s Disease, and other age-related illnesses if they are eligible by going to the VA’s Aid and Attendance page.
