Giving Veterans the Care and Respect They Deserve
Standing Beside Veterans and Their Families
We’re here to support veterans and their families when they need it most. From members of the Greatest Generation dealing with the challenges of advancing age to combat veterans living with injuries sustained in the field — even active duty military families that need a hand around the house while their loved one is deployed—we can help them all. And without exception, you can trust us to be honest, compassionate, and considerate. We treat our nation’s veterans and their families with the respect and dignity they have earned.
Service with Honor
At FirstLight Home Care, our caregivers believe in service with honor —just like you do. It’s why they devote themselves to helping others maintain their independence and enjoy the quality of life they deserve. And it’s also why they choose to join our company. We take pride in the care and peace of mind we provide to our clients and their families, and we consider it a privilege to serve the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to defending our country.
We offer friendly, professional companion and non-medical personal care that covers everything from household duties like cooking, cleaning and laundry to individual needs such as bathing and hygiene, continence and toileting care, mobility assistance, and assistance with eating. We can help out with running errands, organize bills, take care of paperwork, or just sit down and enjoy some pleasant conversation. Whatever is needed.
VA In-Home Care Benefits
The nation is grateful for your service and many veterans are unaware that in-home care costs can be covered by the VA, through its Homemaker, Home Health Aid Program. They will pay for in-home care assistance for qualified veterans. Qualification for the program is usually dependent on the amount of assistance the veteran requires with completing his/her acts of daily living. We are glad to help you understand what benefits you qualify for.
For veterans already receiving medical care through the VA, you only have to ask your VA doctor to enroll you in the Homemaker, Home Health Aid program. The VA may approve in-home care hours from a minimum of two hours per week up to 24 hours per day. The number of hours awarded will be unique to each veteran depending on the extent of their need for the service.
Any veteran not currently receiving medical care from the VA can complete a VA form 10-10EZ in order to gain access to VA benefits, including in-home care.
