Someone who will be at either/both of these events, please inquire about the VA's program for helping wartime vet's (or spouses if vet is deceased). The little-known program helps in covering "assisted living", "in-home care", and "nursing home" expenses incurred at facilities providing such services. Those covered don't have to be senior citizens, but many are. The vets do not have to have been in combat or served overseas to receive this benefit.
I read about it in the Fredericksburg,VA newspaper around July 4th. It was noted as "old news", because the press release was issued on Dec. 19,2006 by then V.A. Secretary Jim Nicholson. While it stated that this is an under used benefit, could it be it's little advertised? It's called the Aid and Attendance Benefit. Frank L. Buquicchio, an elder activist, accredited by the VA to give advice to and represent veterans(and spouses of deceased vets) noted that under federal law "no one, not even attorneys, can charge veterans for the pension application".
The article I gleaned this information from was written by Saul Friedman, the author of "Gray Matters, a column appearing in "Newsday". Hope it helps someone! Just ask. Ask at the meetings and/or your VA Rep.
