Veterans and survivors who are eligible for a VA pension and require the aid and attendance of another person, or are housebound, may be eligible for additional monetary payment. These benefits are paid in addition to monthly pension, and they are not paid without eligibility to Pension. Aid and Attendance monies increase the pension amount, therefore people not eligible for a basic pension because their income is high, may be eligible for pension at the increased rates.
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has published the 2018 Aid and Attendance Rates; rates were effective 12/1/2017.
Cal-Vet Assisted Living Facilities have been added to this site. The public documents were obtained under California Public Act Requests (CPRAs) for seven facilities, and CARR's interns harvested the documents for the Chula Vista facility directly from the public record file.
Elderly Veterans have special needs, and specialized services are required to meet those needs. We have compiled tools, resources, and informational resources for aging veterans and their families, CARR also has compliance histories on CalVet assisted living facilities. if you are looking for an assisted living placement and live near a CalVet RCFE, its recommended you get on their waiting list early, as the wait can sometimes be quite long.
