HELP FOR MOM AND DAD

Caring for an aging parent, elderly spouse, domestic partner or close friend presents difficult challenges – especially when a crisis hits and you are suddenly faced with the responsibilities of elder care.
If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.


“Independent, spirited and full of life describes our father, an 87 year old WWII veteran. As his body began to fail him, he’s gone back and forth to the hospital and rehabilitation. He doesn’t always eat well and he has countless appointments to go to and medications to take. I do the best I can to help him while juggling long hours at work and taking care of my husband and children. My brother tries to help as much as possible, but he lives in another state. This man who could run rings around us, and was the “go to” guy for the whole family, now needs our help. We do our best, but it’s difficult... and heartbreaking.”

According to the Pew Research Center, just over 1 of every 8 Americans aged 40 to 60 is both raising a child and caring for a parent, in addition to between 7 to 10 million adults caring for their aging parents from a long distance. US Census Bureau statistics indicate that the number of older Americans aged 65 or older will double by the year 2030, to over 70 million.


Home Care

One option is to hire someone to come into the home on a regular basis to help. Unfortunately, for many people this option isn’t possible because they simply can’t afford it.

There is Financial Assistance Available
The Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Special Pension can help veterans or surviving spouses pay for care at home or in some instances assisted living. Depending on whether the pension recipient is a surviving widow, a single veteran or a veteran with a dependent, the pension amount ranges from around $13,000 per year to over $23,000 per year. The pension can help pay for as much as 50-100 hours per month of in-home care. Professional care at home helps insure the safety and well being of your loved one and can be a real lifesaver for you and other family caregivers. If your loved one is a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran and needs help at home, but has limited financial resources, he or she may qualify.

Veterans ElderCare can help your loved one.
