A Well-Kept Secret:Veteran’s Benefits for Long Term Care

For many Veterans in Florida, the rising cost of Assisted Living or home health care can be staggering. The good news is that there is a little-known VA benefit that can help you get the care you need without using up all of your hard-earned savings.

I am a Board Certified Elder Law Attorney, I have spent the last 30 years helping people all around Florida receive quality health care while legally protecting their hard-earned assets.

It never ceases to amaze me when I talk with the families of Veterans how little they understand about the VA’s benefit programs that are available to those honorably discharged Veterans who are over 65 and are struggling with the cost of their care.

If you or a member of your family is an honorably discharged Veteran who served at least one day during a period of wartime (the definition of “wartime” may be broader than you think), and if you are in an Assisted Living Community or are spending several hundred dollars a month or more on the cost of your health care, then you may qualify for benefits under the VA Aid and Attendance Pension Program.

To learn more about the eligibility requirements to be able to apply for these valuable benefits, click here to access my priceless primer, Consumer’s Guide to Medicaid, Veteran’s Benefits and Asset Protection for Long Term Care Needs Planning. It’s absolutely FREE!

Here are some of the secrets that I reveal:
