VA Caregiver Provider Info
Havenwood is a provider of VA services both through their social service and medical benefits as well as through their aid and attendant program. If you are receiving care through the Veterans Administration, you may be eligible to receive in home care support.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a spectrum of geriatric and extended care services to veterans. There are two programs provided by the VA, the first is through the VA medical benefits program and the second is through the VA pension benefits. Havenwood can provide services under both programs.
Long Term Care Benefits (Medical)
The VA Long Term Care benefits are for those enrolled in its health care and are managed by a VA case worker. More than 90 percent of VA’s medical centers provide home and community-based outpatient long-term care programs. This patient-focused approach supports the wishes of most patients to live at home in their own communities for as long as possible.
Homemaker and Home Health Aide (H/HHA)
The VA began a program in 1993 of health-related services for service-connected veterans needing nursing home care. These services are provided in the community by public and private agencies under a system of case management which is provided directly by VA staff.
Respite care temporarily relieves the spouse or other caregiver from the burden of caring for a chronically ill or disabled veteran at home. Respite care is usually limited to 30 days per year.
Compassionate Care You Trust
From the initial visit, we develop a care plan that is personalized to fit you and your loved one’s needs and schedule. We provide you with a written care plan which outlines the specific services provided.
Aid & Attendant Benefit (Pension)
Veterans and survivors who are eligible for a VA pension and require the aid and attendance of another person or are housebound, may be eligible for an additional monetary payment. The pension beneficiary is responsible to use the additional payment to pay for home care services. A veteran or surviving spouse may not receive aid and attendance benefits and housebound benefits at the same time.
The Aid & Attendant (A&A) increased monthly pension amount may be added to your monthly pension if you meet certain conditions.
This increased monthly pension amount may be added to your monthly pension when you are substantially confined to your immediate premises because of permanent disability.
