Each year tens of thousands of the current millions of senior citizen veterans and their spouses must postpone or even forego
medical assistance, prescription drugs and veterans health benefits because they are simply unaware of the benefits currently
afforded them as veterans under the Aid and Attendance provisions of the Veterans Health Administration.

Personal Care providers, Eldercare Attorneys and Financial Advisors working together to provide the best health care for our

veterans will receive the maximum benefits allowed by law
