A vast majority of Veterans are not enrolled in the VA healthcare system and may not be aware of the services and benefits available to them, including aid and attendance special benefit, nursing home benefit and hospice care benefit. We are committed to honoring and serving our nation’s Veterans and provide services wherever the veteran calls home, including community nursing homes, private residences and other community facilities.
Our team of nurses, social workers, hospice aides, chaplains, bereavement counselors and volunteers work together to ensure that we honor our Veteran’s unique needs through the utilization of these benefits and our participation in the We Honor Veterans program.
Our social workers are available to assist veterans in discovering the VA benefits available to help with their care needs.
