How Can the Vet’s Aid & Attendance Offset Assisted Living Costs?
The Department of Veterans Affairs provides an Aid and Attendance Pension to eligible veterans and their spouses which can help offset the cost of assisted living, home health care or a nursing home. If you qualify, veterans can receive up to $2,230 per month, and surviving spouses can receive up to $1,228 per month.
Methuen Village partners with a local company to offer a free benefits consultation to anyone looking to move to our community (an $800 value) to determine if you can qualify for this benefit. Our goal is to simplify what can be a lengthy and confusing qualification and application process and help our residents get the maximum allowable benefit. If you are interested in learning more and to get the process started, please speak with our Executive Director, Tracy Valletti. Don’t delay – the average time between initial application and approval of benefits is four months!
Methuen Village serves seniors in Methuen and the surrounding area including Andover, Lawrence, Lowell, Haverhill, Dracut, and Salem NH.
