Home Care for Veterans
At Gigi’s Legacy Homecare, we thank our veterans for their service. We consider it a privilege to provide non-medical home care services to the men and women who have served our country and risked everything for our freedom. Whether you have injuries or an illness related to combat or not, you can trust us to be honest, compassionate, and considerate, and to treat you with the utmost respect and dignity that you deserve.
Caring for Veterans
As a home care provider, we’re here to help with a variety of companionship services, care management and family caregiving support. Our home care services are provided to veterans of any age and their family caregiver. We help to make life easier with daily tasks so you can concentration on healing and overcoming challenges including living with combat wounds, PTSD, and other injuries and illnesses. Our goal is to help you remain independently in your home while maintaining your quality of life.
Helping Family Caregivers
We understand that home care for veterans often extends to their supportive family. Many times a family member takes on a caregiver role for the veteran. If you are a family caregiver, one of the most important things you can do to help care for your loved one is to take care of yourself!
Ways in which we help family caregivers are by providing support services that help reduce stress, assist with care and give you a much needed break. Please contact us to get a free assessment about the services that fit best with your situation.
Veterans Assistance Programs
While Gigi’s Legacy Homecare does not have direct access to benefits to pay for home care services, there are programs that you might qualify for directly. The MISSION Act provides greater support for veterans needing in-home care. In addition, you might be eligible for Veterans Aid and Attendance.
When you have ailments and illness that goes beyond the basic care of your Veterans Assistance (VA) benefits, there are programs that you might qualify for to help with home care. One program is an underused pension benefit called Aid and Attendance that provides money to those who need assistance performing everyday tasks. This assistance includes home care that the veterans applies for with their pension. Aids and Attendance is a pension benefit to veterans who have served at least 90 days and at least one day during wartime. The benefit does not require that the veteran have a service-related disability. For many veterans and their families paying for home care, the additional pension benefit can make the difference between comfort and hardship.
Please contact the VA directly to inquire about benefits for home care services.
