VA Home Care Benefits Options

At 2nd Family of the Main Line, we’re honored to extend our home care services to veterans through the VA Community Care program. This initiative is a vital resource for veterans in Philadelphia, ensuring they receive the personal care services they need when VA facilities can’t provide specific services or when the required care isn’t readily accessible due to location or wait times. Our services align seamlessly with VA home care benefits in Philadelphia, offering a compassionate, professional touch.

VA Community Care Program

The VA Community Care program allows eligible veterans access to a network of over a million community providers nationwide. This program supplements the VA health care system, allowing veterans to receive care through community providers like 2nd Family​​. To access these benefits, veterans must first receive VA approval, often coordinated through the local Referral Coordination Team. This process ensures that all potential options, including community care, are considered​​. If you’ve not yet been approved for benefits, reach out to our team and we will gladly assist you in the process.

Eligibility for the program is determined by specific criteria, such as needing services not provided by the VA, living in an area without a full-service VA health care facility, or if VA facilities can’t provide timely care according to their standards. At 2nd Family, we understand these requirements and are prepared to assist veterans in navigating them to access the care they deserve​​.

By choosing 2nd Family for VA home care benefits in Philadelphia, veterans and their families can rest assured they’re receiving the highest level of care. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized services that meet the unique needs of each veteran, enhancing their quality of life while respecting their independence and dignity. As part of the Main Line community, we’re proud to support our veterans and contribute to their well-being.

 

Aid and Attendance Benefit

The VA’s Aid and Attendance program is a specialized pension benefit available to qualified wartime Veterans, their spouses, and eligible surviving spouses.

This benefit is specifically designed to provide monetary assistance to Veterans who need help with fundamental personal care activities, commonly referred to as Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). These vital activities encompass tasks such as bathing, dressing, and eating. For Veterans who require ongoing care and support but are financially unable to afford these services, the Aid and Attendance benefit offers a practical solution. This benefit can help cover the expenses of a home care aide who assists the Veteran with their daily routines.

Eligibility and Compensation Details for the Aid and Attendance Program

For a Veteran to qualify for the Aid and Attendance pension benefit, both their service history and financial status are evaluated. To meet the criteria, a Veteran must have completed at least 90 consecutive days of service during designated wartime periods and have assets below $150,538 (as of 2023). An honorable discharge is also a prerequisite for eligibility. In scenarios where a surviving spouse is involved, they must have been married to the Veteran at the time of the Veteran’s death.

The benefit is paid directly to the Veteran, giving them the autonomy to use these funds for their care requirements.

Numerous organizations are available to assist Veterans in accessing this benefit and to aid home care agencies in finding eligible clients. These include resources like Aidandattendance.com and Vet Assist. For those seeking support with VA home care benefits in Philadelphia, we are here to help.
