Home Helpers Announces National Partnership with Veterans Care Coordination

New Program Helps Veterans and Surviving Spouses Apply for and Obtain Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit through Department of Veterans Affairs to Help Pay for Safe and Affordable Home Care

November 02, 2012 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI – One in three seniors in the United States is a veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran. Every day, many of these men and women go without the health care they need simply because of lack of information or assistance. Recognizing this, Home Helpers, one of the nation’s leading senior care franchises specializing in comprehensive home healthcare services and companionship, has teamed up with Veterans Care Coordination to provide an easier path for veterans and surviving spouses to receive the benefits to which they are entitled and the home care they deserve.

“The number one challenge many Americans face is how they will pay for the care they need,” said Emma Dickison, president of Home Helpers, Caring Hearts and Direct Link. “What many veterans and their spouses do not realize is that they may be eligible for up to $24,228 per year of tax-free money to pay for home care services. Through our partnership with Veterans Care Coordination, we are able to assist qualifying veterans and their spouses apply for and obtain the Aid and Attendance Benefit through the Department of Veterans Affairs to help cover their medical expenses, including Home Helpers home care services.”

According to Kyle Laramie, president of Veterans Care Coordination, “What makes this partnership unique is the fact that we can offer interest-free loan assistance to clients that cannot afford the up-front, out-of-pocket expense that is required. Our company assists seniors in their qualification for the benefit, reducing the stress commonly associated with applying for assistance. We are thrilled to partner with a respected organization such as Home Helpers to provide our veterans with the benefits to which they are entitled.”

Home Helpers provides comprehensive home healthcare services for seniors, new and expectant mothers, those recovering from illness or injury and individuals facing lifelong challenges. Caregivers work with clients one-on-one to tailor flexible care plans to meet their specific needs and budgets, with services such as local transportation, light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders and bathing, among others.

“At Home Helpers, we respect our veterans and the sacrifice they have made for our country, and we are honored to provide them with the affordable home care they deserve,” Dickison said.
