Veterans Who Need Assisted Living: The number of military veterans in the United States is over 23.7 million.
This is a staggering number, especially when you consider that many of our veterans are seniors, or soon to become
seniors and retirees. The number of veterans with a disability is over 6.1 million and more than half this number (3.5 million) are 65 and older. The number of military veterans needing assisted living in the United States will most certainly grow in the coming years, as will the need for appropriate assisted living and senior care options for this group.
Additionally, the need for assisted living for veterans under the age of 65 is growing due to injuries or the need for incidental medical care.
Many veterans feel more at ease and at home sharing their time with other military veterans who have shared some of the same experiences that they have, and in an environment that honors their service in the military. In the example of Wakefield Place assisted living (below), this facility is decorated with military-themed artwork, memorabilia, and flags.

An interesting news story about the VA Aid & Attendance Pension that states that if you are a Veteran, a surviving spouse, or a widow, you may be eligible for VA benefits to help pay for the cost of assisted living and nursing home costs.p class="text-light">Apparently, many people and veterans are not aware of this benefit,.so it's a good video to check out if you are unsure of what your beneifts are.

Assisted Living isn't always an immediate option or it may take some time to find the right facility or community. You may be caring or "caregiving" for a Veteran at home, and may need support, advice or just someone to talk to. This government service and site can connect you with a caregiver, and offer local assistance by licensed professionals near where your home is. This group of caring professionals can:
Tell you about the assistance available from VA.
Help you access services and benefits.
Connect you with your local family Caregiver Support Coordinator at a VA medical center near you.
Just listen, if that's what you need right now.
