VA Credentials

VA Home and Community Based Services

Veteran Affairs Home and Community Based Services offer in-home care and community-based services that can help chronically ill, elderly or disabled veterans remain living in their homes. Under FirstLight’s veteran care services, caregivers can assist veterans of any age with their daily activities at home. These services can be used as a part of an alternative to nursing home care and to get respite care for veterans and their family caregivers.

Aid Attendance Benefits

Aid & Attendance Benefits

Aid & Attendance is available to eligible veterans and their surviving spouses who require assistance with things such as eating, bathing and medication reminders, even if the assistance is not a direct result of a service-related injury. FirstLight can provide non-medical home care under the Aid & Attendance program, as well as companion and personal care services to anyone 18 years of age and older.
