VA Aid and Attendance Program

The Department of Veterans Affairs has a program that few Veterans know about but is very helpful in paying for Home and Community based services that many of our residents require. If you or your spouse was Active-duty Military during a wartime you may be eligible. Below are the most relevant links for the VA Aid and Attendance program.  It is a time consuming and detailed process but if your loved ones’ qualify it can significantly offset the monthly costs of Assistance. You can find the official requirements and process at on the VA website under Aid and Attendance.

The process has three major steps:

  1. Gather Personal Information and determine Financial Eligibility Info: VA Net Worth Limits and Financial Reporting for Claims
  2. Complete the Physician Assessment of Needs Form: VBA-21-2680-ARE (VA Aid and Attendance) – Take to your Doctor
  3. Select a Community and Move-In Form: VBA-21 Nursing Home Information
