04 Jul Veteran Care & Independence
Happy Independence Day! It’s an honor to care for our nation’s Veterans and provide services that support their freedom and independence – just as they once fought to do the same for us. For this reason, we provide Veterans with a 10% discount on one week of private care services when they apply.
We understand that Veterans need highly specialized care to meet their daily needs, which is why we’re proud to share that we officially became vendorized and contracted by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) this year to provide Veteran care services. This has been a huge milestone for us, as we’ve invested a lot of time and training to grow our experience working with Veterans over the past 16 years.
There’s a lot of information out there when it comes to benefits and eligibility for Veterans and their loved ones. It’s our team’s goal to help you navigate all of these resources to find the best solutions possible. Here is a quick download to help get you started:
- HOMEMAKER OR HOME HEALTH AIDE SERVICES: A special program for Veterans who need skilled services, case management and help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, fixing meals or taking medicines. Individuals that provide Homemaker or Home Health Aid services work for an organization that has contracted with the VA and can be used as a way to get Respite Care at home for Veterans. Their services help Veterans continue to live independently in their residence.
- RESPITE CARE: is a temporary service that pays for someone to visit a Veteran’s home, so the family caregiver can leave and tend to his or her own personal needs. This can help lower the stress by allowing the caregiver to run errands or go out of town for a few days, knowing the Veteran is receiving care.
- AID & ATTENDANCE: This program is offered as part of the VA’s Disability and Death Pension programs, providing supplemental income for Veterans who have a disability unrelated to their military service and/or are at least 65 years old. Similar income is provided to the surviving spouse of a qualifying Veteran.
If you have questions about the approval or qualification process to receive these specialized Veteran services, En Su Casa can coordinate a meeting with your VA social worker or VA primary care doctor and help assess your specific needs to ensure you qualify for the right benefits. Once a Veteran receives authorization from the VA to receive these services, we help monitor their contract to ensure timely renewal and avoid lapses in coverage. We also work diligently to ensure the VA’s stringent guidelines are being met in the care that is provided to Veterans.

We can also assist in determining if you or your loved one qualify for special VA programs and benefits, such as Homemaker Services and Respite Care.
