Is Assisted Living a Good Option for Veterans?
If you are a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, do you wonder if assisted living is a good option for you? Do you wonder if you’re able to use your veteran’s benefits for assisted living? The answer to both questions is: of course!
Resources for Your Veteran
Everyone deserves a comfortable retirement. We know many veterans may not have the financial resources for assisted living but may still require care that only assisted living can provide. At Solterra, veterans are welcome.
If you are a veteran or a surviving spouse and living on a fixed income, you may qualify for special financial assistance through the Department of Veteran Affairs via the Aid and Attendance Pension benefit. If you have more questions about how this particular benefit can apply to your veteran or you, the US Department of Veterans Affairs is a great place to start.
Assisted living is a term that can cover a wide range of assistance for veterans:
As you age, you may find you need some additional assistance in your daily tasks. These include medication management, bathing or showering assistance, and weekly housekeeping. In our assisted living communities, our focus is always on our residents as individuals and encouraging their independence as much as possible while providing the level of care they need. We want life at Solterra to be fun and carefree. We’ll help you stay active and engaged with the world, a model that has proven to give people the best quality of life.
Studies show that veterans are at a higher risk of experiencing memory loss or dementia, especially if they have experienced a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder.
With the beginnings of memory loss or dementia, we provide for your needs here at Solterra by creating a safe and comfortable environment for you. Our staff and personnel are highly trained and aware of each guest’s personal history, which helps conversations flow more easily and makes our guests feel understood.
Memory loss can be a scary thing, which is why our personnel use proven validation techniques to help our guests feel at home. We also offer 24-hour emergency response monitoring and secured garden courtyards to add an extra layer of security and peace of mind for the safety of our residents.
If you are recovering from an illness or a hospital stay and need special care, it might be a good time to utilize Solterra’s short-term/respite care while you recover. You can test the waters while recovering in style. Veteran’s benefits cover this too, and we offer the same quality comfort, social activities, and chef-prepared meals as our other programs.
