Top 3 Senior Veterans Benefits

BENEFIT #1: Aid and Attendance

This benefit provides additional funds to qualified veterans or their surviving spouses, enhancing their monthly pension from the VA (Veterans Administration) to help cover in-home care costs.

Eligible veterans must:

  • Have 90+ days of active duty, including at least one day during wartime (two years for Persian Gulf service).
  • Require assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming, walking, meal preparation, and eating.
  • Have a significant portion of income allocated towards care expenses.

BENEFIT #2: Homemaker/Home Health Aide (HHA)

This program supports Ocean County, NJ veterans who wish to remain independent in their own homes, providing them with a trained home health aide or homemaker. These in-home professionals assist with daily living activities and offer companionship. Veterans services are contracted through non-VA providers, typically home care agencies like Amada Toms River.

Qualification criteria include:

  • Enrollment in a VA medical benefits package.
  • Confirmed eligibility for community-based care services.
  • A doctor’s prescription for home care services.

BENEFIT #3: Respite Care

Respite Care offers temporary relief for family caregivers, allowing them time for personal errands, their dependents, or their mental health. Services may include home visits by a home health aide, adult day care, short-term stays in community living centers or VA nursing homes, or in-patient care at VA medical centers. Priority is typically given to older veterans (75 and older), disabled veterans, or those with greater financial or health needs.

To qualify, veterans must:

  • Be enrolled in a VA health care benefits package.
  • Need assistance with daily living activities or have a chronic illness that requires professional care.
