Three Qualifications to Receive Aid and Assistance for Veterans Home Care in Palm Harbor

By Debbie Humphrey

Memorial Day is a Federal holiday set aside for Americans to honor those individuals we have loved and lost during wartime conflicts. It is also a special day to remember family members and friends who are no longer with us.

Many individuals are quick to point out that this holiday is not about Veterans, but about fallen troops. After all, Veterans have their own day of celebration annually on November 11th, right?Home Helpers Vetin wheelchair w.logo

In as much as this is true, it is vitally important that we strive to show our appreciation and gratitude to living Veterans at any and every opportunity, because without their service and sacrifices – as well as those of their fallen comrades – we would not experience the freedoms and democracy that we are afforded as citizens of the United States.

Are you aware that those who qualify can apply for “Aid and Assistance” to help cover Veterans home care in Palm Harbor?

The first qualification requires a Veteran, or his/her spouse, have a medical need and include a physician’s statement with specific recommendations for their care and assistance with activities of daily living.

Secondly, a Veteran must have served a minimum of 90 days active duty, with at least one day during a period of wartime conflict; and he/she must have received an honorable discharge after their term of service or tour of duty.

The third requirement is income status, because there are limitations in place.

These three qualifications are all that is necessary.
