"The Best Home To Be In Is Your Own"

Attention Veterans and Surviving Spouses of Veterans

If you are a Veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran, you could qualify for up to $2,200 per month that will help you to pay for personal care services.

Most veterans or surviving spouses of veterans are not aware of the eldercare benefits available through veterans’ healthcare. One VA program is called Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit.

Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit can provide up to $2,200 per month for Veteran, their spouse or surviving spouse which can be used to pay for personal care services. These services will help them remain at home and be independent and safe as possible. Living spouses may qualify regardless of how long ago you became a widow(er).

Me First Respite & Home Care will determine your eligibility in the privacy of your home.
