Learn How You Can Apply the VA Aid and Attendance Benefit to Your Senior Living Needs

The Veraden Senior Living presents free educational program for veterans and their families on Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Did you or your spouse serve in the U.S. Armed Forces during war time? Are you eligible for a military pension? If so, you might qualify to receive the “VA Aid and Attendance” benefit, which provides supplemental income to veterans or their single surviving spouses who have a regular need for the aid and attendance of a caregiver.

The Veraden Senior Living invites you to join us for a Veteran Aid and Attendance Program, Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. Retired Army Col. Jerry Shiles, currently an elder law lawyer with Parman & Easterday, will present details of the VA Aid and Attendance benefit, including what the benefit is, who qualifies for it, the application process, required documents, and more. The interactive program will be at The Veraden (2709 E. Danforth Rd., Edmond, 73034). There is no charge to participate and refreshments will be served; however, RSVPs are appreciated by calling The Veraden at 405.359.1230.

“This is a great opportunity for our local retired veterans and their spouses, as well as the adult children of veterans, who have a regular need for a caregiver, to learn how this

important benefit might assist with their living and care expenses,” said Danna Johnson, executive director of The Veraden Senior Living. “Our hope is to increase awareness about this
benefit—to let people know it exists and how they can investigate it. We are so proud of our veterans’ service and want to help them any way we can with residential care planning.

“Our residents that offset their living costs with the VA Aid and Attendance benefit are certainly glad they learned about it and are able to take advantage of it,” Johnson added. Shiles’ practice is devoted to elder law planning, probate, trust and will administration. He has lectured frequently at seminars and clinics in Europe, Japan and the U.S. about elder and Medicaid law, wills and probate, trusts and retirement planning.

For more information about the informative and helpful program, call The Veraden at 405.359.1230.

The Veraden is home to many veterans including: (L-R) Anthony Hoyne; Dave St. Clair; Dick Haxton; Charles Pursifull; Jack Brubacher; and Kerman Franklin.
