Home Care for Veterans in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey Counties

Are your loved ones wartime veterans, or their surviving spouses? If so, they may be eligible for the VA Aid & Attendance Pension benefit to pay for assistance with activities of daily living.

VA Aid & Attendance is a program administered by the Veterans Administration, but very few people know about it or understand how it works. This program allows for Veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in eating, bathing, dressing, undressing, or taking care of the needs of nature to receive additional monetary benefits.

  • Medical:Do you have a non-service-connected medical condition causing you to need assistance with activities of daily living?
  • Money:Do you have limited income and assets? (Your home and car are exempt.)
