Elderly Home Care For Veterans In Holland, MI
Find out how qualifying veterans in Holland, MI can get the elderly home care they deserve.
Millions of American seniors require elderly home care and support in order to remain independent and safe while living at home. Sadly, depending on a senior's circumstances, the costs associated with care can add up quickly and Medicaid and Medicare often offer little support. For seniors who served their country in the United States Armed Forces, there might be help through the Veteran's Administration.

As a member of the American Veterans Care Connection network, Comfort Keepers provides the highest caliber of support and service to those who so bravely served our nation.
Seniors who served at least three months of active duty military service with one day occurring during a time of war may quality for VA support. Of course, seniors must also meet financial qualifications and have a documented physical need for elderly home care services. The surviving spouse of a qualifying service member is also eligible for benefits.
If you believe that your loved one can benefit from Comfort Keepers elderly home care and think they might qualify to receive benefits through the Veterans Administration, give Comfort Keepers a call. They will schedule a free in-home consultation and go through the process with you and your loved one. A care provider will help you gather the documentation needed for the application and coordinate with a veteran’s organization if help is needed when completing the VA paperwork packet.
Standard documentation includes an original discharge certificate, marriage certificate and/or divorce papers from any prior marriage(s), death certificate of the veteran, (if applying for a surviving spouse), social security numbers for your loved one and their spouse, and personal finance records.
