Liken Home Care helps veterans and their families by providing information on the VA Aid and Attendance Pension Program. This can potentially help eligible veterans afford more home care services.
About the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension benefit?
In 1952 Congress passed Title 38 of the United States Code, creating what we now call the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and authorizing benefits for veterans. One of these benefits is the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension benefit.
Even though the pension has been around for 60 years, very few people know about it or understand how it works. Liken Home Care works with many Veteran’s organizations, Elder Law Attorneys, and Wealth Advisers to help spread the word about this under-utilized benefit.
