Often times the elderly and their families need assistance with care and they forget that the VA can be an important resource to them. If you have an elderly loved one or are elderly yourself and are a veteran check out your Veterans Benefits (http://www.va.gov/opa/publications/benefits_book.asp). You may not have needed veteran’s benefits when you were younger, but as we all know things change as we age. The VA offers many benefits for our veterans such as;
- medical care
- medication assistance
- medical equipment
- home modifications help
- medical alert bracelets
The above list is just a few of the benefits that you can get assistance with through the VA. If
you want more information on Veterans Benefits go to http://www.vba.va.gov/VBA, it is chalked full of beneficial information.
In order to receive any Veteran's benefits you must register with U.S. Veterans Affairs. You can register at; http://www.va.gov or call 1-800-827-1000.
