We are excited to unveil our new Veterans’ Program page on our website (click on the “Veterans’ Program” tab). What makes Visiting Angels of Central Burlington County’s Veterans Program so special? The key is TIME. When a qualified U.S. veteran or their widowed spouse applies for their well-deserved “Aid and Attendance Benefit” (which can cover up to 75 HOURS of home care services each month) through standard government channels, it may take up to 8-12 months for them to start receiving benefits. But by applying through us, the Veteran or his widowed spouse will start getting the care they need shortly after completing the application—Visiting Angels of Central Burlington & Mercer Counties will provide care during the 8-12 month processing period. Even better news: if the Veterans Administration rejects the Veteran’s application, neither the Veteran nor their family will be charge for any home care assistance we provided.
So, if you know a wartime veteran who needs care (or are one yourself), be sure to check out the Veterans tab for more information!

We’ve also updated our “Family Survival Kit” page by adding a highly detailed “Home Care Checklist.” Don’t call a home care NJ agency without it!
