Care for Aging Veterans in Mt. Laurel NJ
If you’re looking for ways to help veterans, there are plenty of ways to go about doing it. There are numerous nonprofit organizations all across the country that are invaluable resources to veterans of all ages who might require some type of support and assistance, whether due to emotional challenges, post-traumatic stress disorder, physical disabilities, or just job placement services.
There are also a number of veterans who require home care support. Again, it could be due to a number of reasons including some of those mentioned above. When veterans need home care support, they may be limited on their options, especially if they only have a small disability or pension income coming in.
In those situations, there is a pension that could be an invaluable resource to them. It’s called the Aid and Attendance Benefit and for those who may be interested in doing whatever they can to help support veterans of all ages, sharing this information with them could be a great way to go about helping.
How sharing this information helps.
It’s easy to overlook the value of information and sharing that information with others. Elderly veterans and younger veterans both share at least one thing in common: their time of service. Their experiences may be completely different from one another, but when a senior or a 40 something-year-old veteran has difficulty getting around and taking care of themselves, home care can be a great support system.
Yet, far too many veterans simply don’t know there is financial assistance available that can pay for home care support. They may have applied for previous pensions and had been denied because of their income or asset levels. They may simply assume there’s no way they would be approved for the Aid and Attendance Benefit this time around.
By sharing information about this pension, or others, it can help some veterans realize it’s worth applying for. It’s also a good idea to let them know the approval process can take a long time, so the earlier they begin the process, the better it’s going to be for them.
There is a lot of misunderstanding and inaccurate information out there on the Internet about many support services for veterans and others. By learning the facts about the Aid and Attendance Benefit and then sharing that information with other veterans it can do a lot of good for seniors and others across the country.

As a family owned and run home care company she had to make several big decisions, whether to invest in a franchise or explore other options?
For Mariela after reviewing the restrictions and cost’s associated with a franchise the decision was easy the care she wanted to offer her clients should not be based on monthly franchise payment it should be based on the client’s needs.
At Always There we only hire the most qualified caregivers and in order to do that we offer an excellent starting salary. We would rather pay caregivers then a franchise company.
Mariela as the owner of Always There and unlike other owners of home care agencies, she visits every client first. We believe that if the owner cannot take the time to visit a family wanting to discuss home care for their loved then they don’t deserve the privilege of caring for that person.
As a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University and a Certified Senior Advisor Mariela and her team of certified caregivers have provided care to families throughout south Jersey with over 60% of our clients requesting live-in care.
When deciding if homecare is right for you and your family be sure to consider the number of years a company/office has in the industry, whether or not the owners make themselves personally available 24 hours 7 days a week and most important do they only employ certified professionals to care for your loved one. After all They deserve it.
