Options for Veterans

If you’re a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, you may be qualified for the Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension (also known as the A&A Program). This program is especially designed to help veterans and their surviving spouses who require the attendance of a caregiver to assist with activities of daily living, including eating, bathing, dressing and monitoring medications.
