Veterans Assistance Challenges and Opportunities

In this podcast episode of "Senior Care Confidential," the host discusses challenges and opportunities in healthcare and senior care. The focus is on Veterans Administration (VA) benefits, particularly the Aid and Attendance pension and the Community Care Network (CCN) benefits.The host, Bryan, is joined by Eric vanGoethem from Amada Senior Care to shed light on VA benefits. The Aid and Attendance pension is a valuable benefit for wartime-era veterans and their surviving spouses. However, only 25% of those who qualify apply for it due to complex application processes and lack of awareness.Eric introduces the CCN benefits, which include home health aide, homemaker, and respite benefits. Unlike the Aid and Attendance pension, the CCN benefits involve a simpler application process, starting with VA healthcare approval, seeing a VA primary care physician, and having a case manager determine the hours needed for care. The VA pays approved agencies directly for the caregiving services.Eric emphasizes the need for awareness and encourages veterans and their families to explore these benefits. He mentions initiatives like Community Veteran Engagement Boards (CVEBs) and Veteran Community Partnerships (VCPs) designed to connect community organizations with the VA. Listeners are urged to reach out to Eric for more information and access to resources, including a comparison document detailing CCN benefits versus Aid and Attendance pension.
