Lance D. Like recently attended a 2-day course on VA Aid & Attendance benefits and planning.

This course covered the VA aid and attendance rules that could provide additional income to a war-time veteran, or the widow of a war-time veteran, that could be used to help pay for health care.  This care could be home care, care within an assisted living facility, or care in a nursing home setting.  This is a little known benefit available through the Veteran’s Administration that could provide much needed income for those who have served our country during a time of war.
