The process with the Veterans Administration to receive this benefit is very involved and there is no margin for error. The director of the care facility advised me that most applicants are not approved unless they have professional assistance. Our funds were very limited, and the Aid & Attendance lifelong benefit of approximately $18,000 annual tax-free money made the difference between care at a Medicaid facility or private care.
Fortunately, I consulted with Kenda and she guided me through the process with expertise and compassion. Not only did she assist with all the complex documentation, but she advised me how to be an advocate for the patient. Initially, the patient was diagnosed as needing 24-hour skilled care in the Dementia/Alzheimer’s unit, but Kenda suggested that we request a reevaluation. He was re-evaluated, and it was determined he did not need to be in dementia care; instead he was placed in the excellent care facility at a substantial saving.
If you need financial assistance for your loved one, please confer with Kenda to find out what your options might be. She is truly committed to assisting veterans and their families in finding the right care and resources.

Thank you for the opportunity to let others know what a priceless, supportive service you were able to provide to my family during such a transitional time with my mother. My mother making the decision to move into a senior living environment that felt like "home" was difficult and a huge change for her. It also brought on many decisions as a family that we had to address - finances. Your help was insurmountable in making that change happen and opened up avenues that I wasn't sure could occur. I had, literally, NO clue about the VA benefit that could help my mother afford to live out the rest of her life in a caring, nurturing, homelike atmosphere. Our family would never have been able to navigate the application process without the help of you. I know that I can count on you if I have any additional questions as the application is processed. Thank you again for taking all of your time to help out my mother and family.

want to thank you for all your help. My Mom's award letter came today. The payments will begin soon. Thanks again, as this takes a large burden off me.

I just wanted you to know my mother received her Veteran's award as a surviving spouse of a WWII vet. The award was granted in 3 months, which is half the time I expected. Before contracting you and your organization, my brother and I tried the do-it-yourself approach. There are many similar sounding forms and the documentation required varied depending on where you were researching. In short, we did a lot of work and wasted a lot of time. My cousin told me how helpful you were when he applied for Veterans benefits for his mother. His words of praise for you were well founded. You provided me with easy to understand instructions and a list of the documentation required. From here on out, all our efforts counted toward achieving the goal. Finally, you filled out the actual application form. Because of your experience, you knew that we had the correct information and documentation to get the veteran's administration's approval. There were no problems, and no requests for additional information. It was great.
