Accessible Metro and Veterans Care Coordination partner to create veteran community awareness on Aid and Attendance Benefits.
January 12, 2015 (FPRC) -- Accessible Metro, a non-medical in-home health care provider announces its partnership with Veterans Care Coordination, the fastest growing veteran senior service company, to educate veterans, surviving spouses and their families about the pension with Aid & Attendance benefits. This new partnership will help veterans stay at home and remain living independently for as long as possible in their golden years.
Supplemental income for qualifying veterans is offered through the Veterans Pension and Survivors Pension benefit programs for direct care services offered by the Veterans Administration. This benefit allows qualified elder veterans and surviving spouses to stay at home and receive care by providing monthly pension and coordination of home care and offers a solution for a lifetime funding source. The intricate maze of how to apply and obtain the benefits is not an easy process.
Patti Wasserman, Principal of Accessible Metro grew up listening to her uncle tell stories of his service during the Korean War. These fond memories infused Patti’s passion to help advocate for the Veteran community. Wasserman said, “This new Veterans Care Coordination partnership will support the Accessible Metro mission in creating a new level of awareness. Together we help advocate on behalf of Massachusetts military families to apply for the Aid & Attendance pension benefits.”
“Providing an altruistic service in supporting veteran’s to live independently as long as possible will create a positive impact on their quality of golden year life, concluded Patti Wasserman,” concluded Wasserman.
