With the baby boomers all becoming seniors and most of them having served in our nation’s armed forces, the Veterans Administration is a good source to look to when needing home care. They have helped thousands of veterans and their surviving spouses stay in their homes. However, many veterans or surviving spouses of veterans are not familiar with assistance at home according to Diane Mondini, President of Caring Companions At Home.

If you are a veteran who has served at least 90 days or more on active duty, with at least one day of service during a period of war, or the surviving spouse of such a veteran you may be eligible for the VA’s non-service connected disability pension. It’s astounding that roughly one third of all seniors can qualify for additional income under the right conditions. Yet government statistics show only 5% of potentially eligible veterans are actually receiving the pension benefit according to Mondini.

You can contact the Veterans Administration or call a home care agency that has experience working with the Veterans Administration. They can answer questions and assist you through the process.

When selecting a home care agency it is advisable to choose one that has been serving the community for at least 7 years who employ their caregivers. Their caregivers should be thoroughly screened, bonded and background checked with E-Verify from the Department of Homeland Security. They should also be covered by workers’ compensation and professional liability insurance.

The Orange County Register recently published a story on how a Brea resident received some much needed assistance this holiday season from a local caregiver organization. Caring Companions at Home was listed as one of the organizations to offer senior assistance in the Orange County area.

Some want to stay home and age in place rather than move to assisted living, she says. Others need 24-hour care, including bathing and incontinence care.

Senior Helpers is one of several firms serving Orange County. Others include Home Instead, LivHome, Silverado at Home, Caregiving Companions at Home, Right at Home and others listed in telephone directories under elder care providers or caregiving.
