FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE / VETERAN'S BENEFITS...

Veteran's Aid and Attendance Benefits
If you are a U.S. veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, you may be eligible to receive up to $1800 per month to help pay for personal care such as assisted living. This benefit is a federal benefit provided through the Department of Veteran's Affairs.

For more information about verteran's benefits for long-term care, visit the U.S. Veteran's Affairs website at: va.gov/VBA

For more information about the Veteran's Benefit for personal care/assisted living please contact Doug Mosley at: doug.mosley@va.gov

Medical Tax Deductions
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provides a deduction for medical expenses -- including the cost of care in a nursing home, personal care home, assisted living community or similar institution -- if the primary reason for being there is to get medical care. IRS Publication 501 (PDF download) defines a typical situation as one in which an individual is unable to perform at least two activities of daily living (eating, bathing, dressing, etc.) without assistance from another individual.

Family members can also pitch in toward the cost of residential long-term care and take advantage of the IRS gift tax exemption. Consultation with a tax professional is strongly advised before making financial decisions.
