Do you or your loved one qualify?

Veteran Support

You may qualify for assistance to help cover the costs of assisted living

If you are a United States veteran, a surviving spouse of a veteran, or a widowed spouse of a veteran you may qualify for the Aid & Attendance Program and receive monthly benefits to help cover the costs of assisted living care. This benefit is not dependent upon service-related injuries for compensation. It allows for Veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in day-to-day activities to receive additional monetary compensation and care. This is a tax-free benefit that most veterans needing assistance qualify for.

What is Aid & Attendance

Benefits for veterans, surviving spouses, or widowed spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in bathing, dressing, meal preparation, medication monitoring or other various activities of daily living.

This benefit is available to individuals who reside in assisted living communities. You DO NOT have to require assistance with all of these. There simply needs to be adequate medical evidence that you cannot function completely on your own.

Liberty Park is proud to be an American Company supporting American Veterans

How quickly will I receive benefits?

This is determined by the accuracy of the initial application.

The average process takes around 6 months. However, the VA does pay retroactively from the date of application. The resident is paid directly from the VA. Liberty Park Senior Living can help you learn more about the Aid & Attendance Program. In addition, we work with a local Veterans Service Officer, who can help families of eligible veterans and surviving spouses apply for benefits from The Department of Veteran Affairs.
