Throughout all of MorningStar’s communities, we are privileged to have veterans from all five branches of military service call us home. Whenever we hear that veterans or families of vets are interested in MorningStar at Golden Ridge, we are pleased to direct them to local resources that can help to ease and quicken the application process for “Aid & Attendance”. This is a monthly benefit payment allocated by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to certain wartime veterans and their survivors who qualify for financial need and have a doctor’s order for regular assistance with daily living activities.
Additional qualifications for the vets include having served at least 90 days of active duty, of which at least one day was spent serving during a period of a foreign war. Also, the vet must not have been dishonorably discharged. The Aid & Attendance benefit does not require the vet to have served overseas, seen combat or retired from the military. For surviving spouses to be eligible for the benefit, they must have been married to the vet at the time of their death and never remarried.
Every state (including Arizona) has a Department of Military/Veteran Affairs staffed with Veteran Service Officers who will assist in completing the Aid & Attendance application. Their services are free of charge and the process typically takes three to four months.
We encourage you to contact us to learn more about applying for the benefit. MorningStar at Golden Ridge offers assisted living suites in a range of floor plans as well as secure suites devoted to the individualized care of those with memory impairment.
