Woodbridge Assisted Living to Host Free Workshop for Veterans

Woodbridge Assisted Living is hosting an educational workshop about VA benefits on October 15, 2009 at 6:00PM. The event will take place at 240 Lynnfield St, Peabody, Ma. The workshop is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Please call 978-854-1803 to register.
The VA Aid and Attendance Pension benefit, one of the many benefits available through the VA, offers eligible veterans or their surviving spouses a significant monthly pension, ranging from $1,056 to $1,949 per month tax-free. To be eligible, veterans must have served 90 consecutive days or more with at least one day during a wartime period (World War II, Korea, etc) and meet a few medical and financial eligibility criteria.
As part of our on-going commitment to making eldercare more affordable, we are working to educate the local community about the availability of Aid & Attendance benefits. During our workshop, we will be reviewing the eligibility criteria and showing how thousands of families, EVEN IN CASES OF HIGHER NET WORTH, have become eligible for this benefit which may help to offset the cost of care being provided.
