Did you know that Shepherd of the Valley offers Veteran Benefits?

If you didn’t we are here to break them down for you today. 

As a veteran or the widow or widower of a veteran, you may be eligible for financial assistance for assisted living through the Aid & Attendance benefit provided by the VA. To help you through the application process we have the information provided for you below: 

  • To qualify you must be a war time veteran serving at least 90 days of service with at least one day served during war time, either stateside or overseas.
  • If you are a widow/widower of a veteran, you may also qualify. Some stipulations apply. 
  • When you call the VA:
    • Tell them you need the Aid & Attendance paperwork
    • Take the medical paperwork to your physician 
    • Complete the financial paperwork
    • SOV will provide the assisted living services letter

With all of the important information out of the way we still have a few reminders/procedures that you may need to follow to find out if you qualify or once you are officially qualified. Shepherd of the Valley will provide the letter regarding your assisted living but you must make the application and follow-up with the VA on the progress of your claim. We are not legally able to do this for you. Please also note that even if you provide us with all of this necessary information this does not guarantee you will qualify for the Aid & Attendance benefit.
