We Help Senior Veterans and Their Surviving Spouses Finding The Care They Need
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was created in 1952 after Congress passed title 38 of the United States Code authorizing benefits for Veterans.
Even though the pension has been around for 60 years, very few people know about it or understand how it works. U.S. Veteran Care Services has the experience to successfully help Veterans and their families applying for and receiving their free home care. Let us help you!

Are you the surviving spouse of a Veteran that is at least 55 years old?
Have assets less than $125,000.00 (Your home and car are exempt)

Does the veteran live in an assisted living facility? We might be able to help. If your financial situation is preventing you from receiving care because you cannot afford it and you live in an assisted living facility, there are Veterans benefits for assisted living facilities that might be a good fit. Our team is always ready to set you up with one of our outstanding home care providers.

Does the Veteran live in a nursing home? We might be able to help. We understand that for many Veterans, nursing homes represent a logical next step. If the Veteran is already living in a nursing home, we may be able to qualify him/her to receive VA benefits for any extra care they need at their facility.

The Process Step-by-Step
You don’t have to do it alone
U.S. Veteran Care Services Provides the Home Care Assistance You Need for Daily Living Activities
Our mission is to provide support to you and your family by working with you every step of the way
We start by explaining the benefits available and what the qualifications are to receive these benefits.
Then we will take care of you from the beginning of the application by meeting with you to explain the paperwork process.
After all the paperwork has been gathered, we will submit it to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for review. The VA usually takes three to eight months to review applications and make a final decision; however, it could take a bit more than eight months on unique circumstances.
U.S. Veteran Care Services will continue communication with the Veteran or surviving spouse throughout the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs review period.
After the review period has ended, and the VA has made a final decision, we continue to work with the Veteran/spouse to provide a home care provider that will meet his/her needs.
Our service continues throughout the term of your benefits so that we can ensure quality and compliance is met for you to maintain the qualification requirements for your benefits!
All of these services are provided to you at NO COST!
From the start you can count on U.S. Veteran Care Services
