Veterans Benefits

Veteran's Aid and Attendance Benefit for Senior Care  

This is an important benefit and is often overlooked by many veterans and their spouses. The VA does not normally contact veterans to inform them of a benefit. Sadly, very few people are aware that this benefit exists. At Lincoln Home Care we work diligently to provide our families and community the information needed to obtain this widely under-used benefit. 

What is it? 

A special “pension benefit” which pays for a private Caregiver to assist in the daily activities of living, including eating, bathing, dressing and mobility. Includes care in the home and in assisted living communities. Sometimes it includes care in a nursing home if the elderly patient is blind or has mental or physical incapacity.

Who Qualifies?

Veterans who served in the following wars (includes spouse/surviving spouse). Veteran must have served 90 consecutive days, with at least 1 of those days during “wartime”, even if they were not in a combat zone.

  • World War I
  • World War II
  • Korean Conflict
  • Vietnam Era
  • Persian Gulf War

Financial Qualifications:

Less than $80,000 in assets (excluding home and vehicles) 

How much care does Aid & Attendance pay for?

Up to $1,720 per month for a Veteran
Up to $1,094 per month for a Spouse
Up to $2,020 per month for a Couple
