One irrefutable aspect of aging is the high cost of long-term care. And it won’t get cheaper as time goes by.
Although it is vital for our senior loved ones, few of us can only afford to pay for Senior Care services if our loved ones choose to stay at home.
Fortunately, with the Aid and Attendance (A & A) program, qualifying low-income veterans (or their spouses) may be eligible for financial assistance to cover the cost of nursing homes or in-home care support—even those who require Veterans Aid and Attendant in Broward, Florida.
This benefit allows beneficiaries to receive certain amounts per year.
To qualify for the program, at least one of the following must be correct:
- You have to stay in bed—or spend a large portion of the day in bed—because of illness or disability.
- You are a nursing home patient who has lost mental or physical abilities as a result of a disability.
- Your vision is poor (even with glasses or contact lenses, you have a vision of 5/200 or less in both eyes or a concentric contraction of the visual field to 5 degrees or less).
