Central New Jersey Senior Care Company Assists Wartime Veterans and Their Surviving Spouses

New Home Care Assistance partnership assists NJ Veterans, who incur medically-related expenses, in predetermining eligibility for the Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Pension.

Monroe, NJ (PRWEB) May 24, 2012 - When a family arrives at a point where they need to secure in-home care services for an aging loved one, one of their biggest concerns is how they will pay for these necessary services. While some individuals do have long-term care insurance and others qualify for Medicaid, the majority of recipients receiving in-home care services pay privately. Most veterans and their surviving spouses are not aware of the VA Aid and Attendance Pension, which will provide financial assistance to those who lack the necessary funds to meet their medical needs.

According to census data from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, there are 295,818 veterans age 65 or older living in New Jersey. Lance Abramowitz, who serves as the Regional Director for Home Care Assistance stated, “The VA Aid and Attendance Pension is one of the VA’s best kept secrets. Thousands of veterans and their surviving spouses may qualify for financial assistance through the program, but they don’t even know that the program exists. My goal is to educate the community to ensure that eligible veterans and their surviving spouses benefit from the program.”

The VA Aid and Attendance Pension provides financial assistance to veterans and their surviving spouses, who lack the funds to secure necessary medical services. These medical services include, but are not limited to, supplemental health insurance, prescription medications, medical co-pays, durable medical equipment, and in-home care services such as meal preparation, bathing, dressing and medication reminders.

Basic eligibility for the Aid and Attendance Pension is that a veteran must have served 90 days of active duty with at least one of those days being during a time of war. There are additional medical and financial considerations. According to Abramowitz, “Home Care Assistance will assist any client in determining per-qualification for the benefit.”

Once a veteran or surviving spouse is approved for the pension, the pension is paid directly to the recipient. The pension is retroactive to the first day of the month following receipt of the application by the VA. This is especially important considering that it can take the VA anywhere from 6-9 months to process and approve an application.
