Veteran Benefits at Beverly Hills Carmel
At Beverly Hills Carmel, we welcome veterans with open arms. Our staff is specifically trained to help you understand your benefits and how they can be used in an assisted living facility such as ours. Even if you've never considered a retirement community, there are benefits to be had at our facility that will help increase the enjoyment during your golden years.
Veteran Benefits for Seniors
Did you know that nearly one-third of all senior veterans can qualify for additional funds under the right conditions? However, we've found that many veterans do not take advantage of this fundamental government offering. Our counselors have a solid understanding of veteran benefits and can help guide you through getting answers to your assisted living-related benefit questions.
Aid and Attendance
If you're a veteran who requires assistance with daily life activities such as dressing, bathing and eating, you may be eligible for a particular type of financial support known as Aid and Assistance. Also called Special Monthly Compensation, this government benefit provides a monthly pension to veterans or surviving spouses who were on active duty service during periods of declared wartime. Monthly benefits are generous and include up to $1,794 for a single veteran, $2,127 for a veteran who is married and $1,153 for a surviving spouse.
If you are housebound, you may also be eligible for an additional monthly pension amount. This benefit is to help compensate you for the support needed for daily activities. If you require a live-in nurse, we are easily able to accommodate your needs at Beverly Hills Carmel. Plus, we offer a significant number of service amenities such as:
- 24-hour emergency care staff and services
- Medication management
- Room service
- Incontinence care
- On-site salon and manicurist
- Daily fitness classes and activities
If you were permanently disabled due to a service-related injury, you might be eligible for additional pension dollars. When you meet specific minimum disability requirements, these dollars can help support the comfortable and engaged lifestyle that you deserve.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always happy to help with specific questions. Our retirement community is situated right at the entrance to Beverly Hills, in a lovely and luxurious setting where you will find all the amenities that you would expect, right at your fingertips. Give us a call anytime at 310-278-9720 or make an appointment with us today to learn more about your veteran benefits and how you can join our community.
