I Highly Recommend Veterans Care Coordination To Anyone Who Cares For A Veteran

As an only child living more than an hour away, I was feeling overwhelmed with the increasing needs of my aging parents. I began looking at options for in-home care. After doing a lot of research online and consulting with someone at a senior care resource group, I chose Home Instead. Both my parents and I were put at ease from our very first consultation and it was such a relief to know that someone understood the position I was in and cared about my parents’ needs. Still, I was concerned with how to pay for the care. My budget just did not allow for the amount of care I knew my parents might need. That’s when my Home Instead representative mentioned Veterans Care Coordination and the Pension with Aid and Attendance benefit. I had heard about the benefit before and had even consulted an attorney about assistance with applying. However, I knew the process was long and tedious and I was likely looking at months of red tape before getting an answer. Veterans Care Coordination made all the difference! ……..…. we were able to start care immediately at no up-front cost to us. I was amazed when his application was approved in six weeks! Since that time, VCC has continued to coordinate the benefit and care, staying in touch with the VA, Home Instead and me to ensure care continues uninterrupted. My parents love their caregiver and my Mom continually tells me how thankful she is to have assistance with so many things they are no longer able to do themselves. I highly recommend Veterans Care Coordination to anyone who cares for a veteran.
