In-Home Veteran Care Services for Those in the Bedford, VA Area.

Aid and Attendance

War-era veterans and their surviving spouses can avail themselves of a valuable benefit known as Aid and Attendance, provided by the Department of Veteran Affairs. This tax-free benefit aims to offer financial support to help alleviate the expenses associated with long-term care, whether it be in the home, an assisted living facility, or a nursing home.

The Aid and Attendance Benefit is specifically tailored for veterans and surviving spouses who require the consistent presence of a caregiver or another individual to assist them in at least two essential daily activities. These activities include bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring. By offering this benefit, the Department of Veteran Affairs aims to provide necessary assistance and financial relief to those in need.

  • 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 trusted provider of Homemaker Home Health Aide Care in collaboration with the Veterans Administration. Our partnership extends to the Veterans Administration offices located in Hampton, Virginia, Richmond, Virginia, Salem, Virginia, and Raleigh, North Carolina.

Veterans can benefit from the assistance of a Homemaker or Home Health Aide who will visit their home and provide personal care services, as well as aid with activities of daily living (ADL). This program is particularly advantageous for Veterans who may be isolated or when their caregiver is facing overwhelming responsibilities.

While Homemakers and Home Health Aides are not nurses, they work under the supervision of a registered nurse who assesses the Veteran’s daily living requirements.

These services offered by Homemakers and Home Health Aides can be utilized alongside other Home and Community-Based Services, with specific offerings varying depending on the location. By choosing Homemaker or Home Health Aide services, Veterans can opt for an alternative to nursing home care or arrange for Respite Care to be provided in their own home, benefiting both the Veterans and their family caregiver.

Engaging the services of a Homemaker or Home Health Aide enables Veterans to maintain their independence and dignity while continuing to reside in the comfort of their own home

We provide quality veteran care services for veterans in the Gloucester, VA area.
