Providing the Money You Need to Pay for Long-Term Care
The VA Aid and Attendance program provides pensions to help eligible veterans or eligible widowed spouses pay for care. It also allows for a family member, such as a son or daughter, to provide this care. The Aid and Attendance program can be used to help pay for in-home professional nursing care, assisted living rent, medical insurance premiums, prescription drug co-pays and much more.
At the Florida Law Office of Amy B. Van Fossen, P.A., we can determine if you are eligible for these benefits, and if so, we can help you obtain them. Our law firm has assisted veterans and their widowed spouses in Brevard County to preserve their assets and remain in their own homes for as long as possible by using other financial resources, such as the VA Aid and Attendance pension program. Contact our Melbourne, Florida, veterans’ aid and attendance attorney today.
