In-Home Care assistance for Veterans in Virginia.

Aid and Attendance

The Department of Veteran Affairs offers a special benefit to war-era veterans and their surviving spouses called Aid and Attendance. This is a tax-free benefit designed to provide financial assistance to help cover the cost of long-term care in the home, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home.

This Benefit is for those veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person or caregiver in at least two of the daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and transferring.

  • Must have served at least 90 days of active duty with at least one day during a period of war.
  • Must have anything other than a Dishonorable discharge.
  • A surviving spouse must have been married to the veteran at the time of his passing, and not remarried unless to a wartime veteran.
  • Must require the assistance of another person to perform some of the daily activities of living.

  • Must meet income and countable asset criteria established by the VA.

  • Must be 65 years and older or totally disabled.

Homemaker Home Health Aide Care

AmeriCare Plus is a preferred provider of Homemaker Home Health Aide Care through the Veterans Administration. We work with the Veterans Administration offices in Hampton Virginia, Richmond Virginia, Salem Virginia, and Raleigh North Carolina.

A Homemaker or Home Health Aide will come to a Veteran’s home to provide personal care services and help with activities of daily living (ADL). This program is also beneficial for Veterans who are isolated, or when their caregiver is experiencing burden.

Homemakers and Home Health Aides are not nurses, but they are supervised by a registered nurse who will help assess the Veteran’s daily living needs.

Homemaker and Home Health Aide services can be used in combination with other Home and Community-Based Services. Services may vary by location. Homemaker or Home Health Aide services can be used as a part of an alternative to nursing home care, or to get Respite Care at home for Veterans or their family caregiver.

The services of a Homemaker or Home Health Aide can help Veterans remain living in their own home with independence and dignity.
