Aid & Attendance

more information

Aid & Attendance is complex, but we have over 15 years’ experience in helping Veterans or  their Surviving Spouse receive the VA’s maximum benefits. The Department of Veteran Affairs  offers a special benefit to war era veterans and their surviving spouses called Aid and  Attendance.  

This is a tax-free benefit designed to provide financial assistance to help cover the cost of long term care in your home, an assisted living facility or in a nursing home.  

This Benefit is for those veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of  another person or caregiver in at least two of the daily activities of living such as bathing,  dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring.
