We help veterans’ families in Southwest Florida understand long term care benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Most veterans are not aware of the eldercare benefits available through veterans health care, through state veterans homes, through home renovation grants (HISA Grants), or for two disability income programs called Compensation and Pension. One particular program called Veterans Pension or more commonly known as the “Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit,” can provide money to pay for home care for veterans. Aid and attendance can also be used to pay for assisted living for a veteran or the veteran’s spouse and for nursing home care for a veteran or the veteran’s spouses.
Practice focuses on comprehensive wealth transfer planning, asset preservation, probate and trust administration, federal transfer tax and elder law.
