When you give your time to serve our country and protect our home, it’s only fair we give something back.
And for veterans, that giving back comes in the form of benefits and support that you can use for yourself and your family. In fact, there are so many benefits our country offers its veterans, that most people don’t even know about them all- let alone actually use them.
So, if you or a loved one is a veteran, here are some tips and tricks to keep you in the loop.
Make the most of the benefits you deserve!
Know your benefits.
All veteran benefits essentially come from one of two levels: federal or state.
While most federal benefits deal with the larger life aspects, state and local benefits can help you on the day today.
It’s important to understand the distinction between the types of benefits, so you can know who to contact when. Though the benefits are out there, it’s up to you to take the time to learn about them and keep yourself informed.
The best places to learn more about veteran benefits and assistance programs are VA.gov and Military.com. These two sites have a plethora of information.
Finding the right information can be hard sometimes, but if you have trouble getting the answers you want- don’t give up! Keep looking and don’t be afraid to call up and nag for the answers you deserve.
You don’t need to go far.
As mentioned before, there are lots of state and local benefits that allow you to get the help you deserve without having to travel far.
One such benefit is homecare assistance.
When you’ve lived your life in a home, it can be stressful and upsetting to move in your older age. That’s why, at Aurora Home Care, we offer at-home health care. So that you or a loved one can get the help you need, while getting the convenience and happiness of home.

- Occupational Therapy
- Social Work Services

Have the service do it for you.
When it comes to veteran assistance programs in local areas, you generally have to apply for some kind of VA pension or VA aid.
The application process can be a little confusing if you haven’t done it before. But, lucky for you, you don’t have to do it yourself. Many places that offer veteran assistance programs are willing to call up and deal with the VA applications and financials for you.
So, before you go to the hassle of calling up the veteran department yourself, always ask the place you’re looking to buy services from to do it for you.
It’s the least they can do!
