Best In-Home Care is grateful for the service that veterans and their spouses have given our country, and provide Veteran’s Benefits for qualifying service members who need in-home senior care. While in-home care is often covered for veterans, many veterans do not seek assistance in their own home. This can be for several reasons. While our military today works hard to encourage veterans to seek help for mental and physical illnesses that may or may not be a result of wartime experiences, many older veterans come from an era where accepting help is a sign of weakness. While most veterans qualify for benefits, they would rather struggle on their own than admit they need assistance. This is why it is important to choose a senior care company that is committed to providing veterans with the care they deserve while maintaining their dignity every step of the way. Best In-Home Care offers veteran-specific care ranging from meal preparation to transportation and personal hygiene. Our caregivers for veterans are aware that some vets may feel embarrassed about needing help, and ensure that their patients are treated with the utmost respect that they deserve.
Another reason that many veterans and their families do not seek in-home elder care is because there is a lot of confusion around who is qualified for benefits. Best In-Home Care offers application assistance to help make the process less complicated and ensure that you or your loved one receive proper care. Some qualifications to receive veteran benefits include wartime services during WWII, or the Korean, Vietnam, or Gulf Wars. The veteran must have honorable discharge, and have served for at least 90 days on active duty with at least one day served during wartime. There are a few other qualifications, but veterans who meet the qualifications are eligible for in-home care for themselves, spouses, or widows.
