Caregivers by WholeCare loves veterans! We are now assisting veterans and their surviving spouses with applying for and receiving VA Aid & Attendance in Nashville, TN and surrounding areas. The VA Aid & Attendance benefit is a non-service benefit for veterans (or widows of veterans) that served during a war-time period (listed below). This benefit is a reimbursement to veterans for care that has already been provided.
Some questions to ask if you are interested in seeing if you or a loved one are eligible for the VA Aid and Attendance benefit:
- Does your physician say you or a family members has a medical need for in-home care?
- Did you serve during a war time period?
- Are you a spouse or surviving spouse of a veteran?
- Do you need help paying for care?
The Veterans Aid & Attendance paperwork can be complicated. We will provide you and your family with FREE guidance by phone or email on completing the paperwork. Accommodations can be made if you or the person filing the paperwork needs more thorough, one-on-one guidance.
Service Requirement: A minimum of 90 days of active duty; at least one day during a conflict; honourably discharged, surviving spouse (widow) cannot have been separated by divorce. If remarried, the last spouse needs to be the veteran.
