Veterans Care Coordination


As part of the process, an intake coordinator will work with families to screen veterans and surviving spouses to determine eligibility and answer questions about the qualification criteria. In certain circumstances, both a veteran and spouse may qualify for the benefit.

Aid and Attendance is available to veterans and surviving spouses of veterans who meet certain criteria:

  • The veteran or spouse must have a medical condition which requires assistance with activities of daily living. This condition may not be related to their military service.
  • The veteran or spouse must meet an income-to-medical expense ratio.
  • The veteran must have served at least 90 days or more of active duty, with at least one of those days during a wartime period. It is not necessary for the veteran to have served in a field of battle, or overseas at all. The veteran must have been honorably discharged. War dates include the following:
    • World War II, Dec. 7, 1941 through Dec. 31, 1946
    • Korean Conflict, June 27, 1950 through Jan. 31, 1955
    • Vietnam Era, Aug. 5, 1964 through May 7, 1975 (period starts Feb. 28, 1961 for those in-country)
    • Persian Gulf, Aug. 2, 1990 through present day
