How The VA Can Help You Pay For Home Care Services

Homewatch CareGivers of Phoenix is a proud supporter of veterans of the United States Armed Services. There is no higher honor worthy of recognition than serving our country, and promoting our American ideals. All of those we serve are valued members of our community. Nonetheless, those whom we serve that defended our nation during times of war, and help sustain peace when not at war, have a special place in our hearts.

It is with this reverence, admiration, honor, and deep respect for their sacrifice and contributions that we offer care and comfort to veterans, and peace of mind to their families in knowing that they are well cared for.

Veterans may be entitled to funding for home care services through several programs that Homewatch CareGivers of Phoenix provides services through. These programs include both Aid and Attendance (A&A) and the Veterans Administration Choice and Accountability Act (VA Choice).

A&A is a pension benefit available to those veterans who apply and qualify; specifically, the pension is available to those wartime veterans in need of assistance as a result of non-service connected disabilities, and demonstrate financial need. To qualify veterans must demonstrate (though their DD-214 discharge form) that they served for at least 90 days, their service was during a recognized wartime period, and that they were honorably discharged. Furthermore, the veteran must have a medical diagnosis indicating the need for long-term care (e.g., chronic illness or dementia), and meet the financial criteria. It is a reimbursement program that clients use to pay for services provided by Homewatch CareGivers. Different levels of funding are available for veteran couples, veterans, and surviving spouses.

Homewatch CareGivers of Phoenix also participates as a preferred provider to the local VA office for the VA Choice program. It is a referral based program, whereby the veterans must receive orders from a VA approved medical practitioner/doctor indicating that they need home care services. The VA will pay 100% for the services prescribed.

Homewatch CareGivers of Phoenix is a family owned and operated business. We strive to deliver home care services that are consistent with what we would expect for our own family member. It is with pleasure that we provide service to our veterans, with whom share a commitment and love for our country and its principles.
