Be in-the-know:

New, Little Used VA Programs 

Aid and Attendance
A little known and little used Veterans Administration program can help low income, disabled veterans receive needed medical, nursing and home healthcare without depleting their savings. The program, known as Aid and Attendance, can be used to pay for adult day care, skilled nursing care and home care. It also can be used to pay a family member other than a spouse to care for the veteran at home. The Aid and Attendance Program began in 1953, but most veterans do not know about it. The program differs from the disability pension provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information, visit the Web site. Applications can be submitted online through the VA's.VONAPP portal
