Helping Veterans Access Home Care Benefits

Learn more about the home care benefits that allow veterans to age in place.

At Caring Senior Service, we believe that our veterans have earned the benefits provided through the VA system through their sacrifices in service to our country. However, many veterans are unaware of the extent of benefits available to them that will allow them the choice to stay at home and receive quality home care services through Veterans Administration (VA) programs. Our Chattanooga team can help educate families as they navigate the process to get our veterans the care they deserve.

If your loved one served in the US military, they may be eligible for financial assistance to pay for home care services. The VA offers home care benefits through the Aid and Attendance Pension and the Community Care Network (Homemaker/Home Health Aide & Respite). These benefits can alleviate some or all of the financial burden of receiving home care and allow Chattanooga veterans the choice to age in place instead of moving into a facility.

Accessing Home Care Benefits

Navigating the VA system can be tricky, but we are here to help. The first step in determining eligibility for VA benefits is submitting a VA Form 10-10EZ. This can be a lengthy process, in some cases taking months to get a decision from the VA system. For additional assistance, you can speak with a service coordinator, discharge planner, case manager, or social worker at your local VA. There are also local Service Organizations, such as the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Wounded Warrior Project, that specialize in getting veterans through this process.

It’s best for families to complete this process before their loved one needs home care. When the need for extra help with everyday activities arises, it can be sudden and urgent. Waiting for approval from the VA on your benefits can be costly or limit your care options. Apply as soon as possible to determine if costs of in-home care are covered.
