VetAssist Program: We change lives-Helping Accessing Aid and Attendance

The VA’s Aid and Attendance benefit is for wartime veterans or their surviving spouses, who meet certain medical and financial requirements.

VA Requirements-3M’s:

*Military Service: Minimum 90 days active duty with at least one day during wartime and an honorable discharge (Gulf War veterans must have served active duty for 2 years or the full period for which they were called for active duty)

*Medical Condition: Non-service-connected disability which requires assistance with activities of daily living.

*Money Limitations: A net worth (income & assets) at or less than $130,773 (as of 12.1.2020). A primary residence and auto are not counted as part of the net worth. Ongoing unreimbursed medical and long-term care expenses may reduce income.

Why we’re unique-3’s:

*Speed: With a VetAssist Program, home care starts promptly before the VA processes your claim and VA funding begins.

*Savings: The VetAssist Program’s interest free loan allows you to pay for home care with NO out-of-pocket costs, BEFORE the VA approves your application.

*Service: Continuing client service ensures you get the quality care you need when you need it. And our compliance monitoring helps you keep your pension and your care.

More than 18 years of experience means peace of mind for you and your loved one.

Our Story:

Bonnie Laiderman founded Veterans Home Care in 2003 after watching her mother, Edith, struggle with a terminal illness. Her mother was eligible for military spouse benefits, but sadly Bonnie learned about it too late. After her mother’s death, she realized senior veterans and their families needed help navigating the VA system. Bonnie not only became an expert, but she launched a company that would go on to help more than 19,000 veterans and spouses get the benefits that her mother never received.

If you qualify for our unique VetAssist Program, we can get you the home care you need NOW while the VA reviews your claim.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
