The Veterans' Aid & Attendance Guide

The Veterans’ Aid & Attendance Guide is our free service to provide veterans with their VA benefits. Through a 5-step process, we guide clients through the transition into in-home care, assisted living or skilled nursing, and through the process of obtaining the Aid & Attendance pension to help pay for those services.

We work with veterans and their families, as well as their doctors, case workers and other professionals, to make this transition as smooth as possible.


The Comprehensive Care Plan

As part of our process, we provide a Comprehensive Care Plan, which allows us to customize our service to the needs of each individual veteran.

The plan proposes next steps based on our understanding of the client’s current health care requirements and eligibility for the Aid & Attendance pension. We want to ensure that each veteran attains the health care he or she needs, without putting personal financial stability at risk.

"It gives me great pleasure to recommend Alex Dela Cruz for his expertise and knowledge in submitting my application the Veterans Administration for the benefits that I was totally unaware of, which ultimately resulted in me being approved in an expedient manner."

WWII Veteran
"Last fall Alex assisted my father in qualifying for the Aid & Attendance program. He expertly guided my father step by step through the application process and provided useful care planning advice. The end result is that my dad has retained his independence and dignity. He is safe and happy in his own home with help from his caregivers."
Son of WWII Veteran
"Learning that it would take almost a full year to receive additional funding for my mother added additional stress on top of an already stressful situation. Alex’s efforts secured my mother with the additional $1056.00 per month that she needed, in a two-month time frame. Words alone simply cannot begin to express my gratitude."
Daughter of Veteran
"My mother is a 96-year-old widow of an Army officer who served on active duty for 30 years. Alex provided to me invaluable assistance and information regarding the Veterans Aid & Attendance program, and my mother is now approved of the benefit, which will help close the gap on the financial requirements of her care."
Son of Veteran
"It's not easy to wade through the process of a government agency; it can be confusing and frustrating. Alex’s help has been complete and thorough throughout the entire process and we cannot thank him enough for always returning our calls and answering so many questions."
