DEARBORN, Michigan – Oakwood Common will host a workshop for wartime veterans, families and caregivers to learn how to seek funds to cover the cost of senior housing, homecare or nursing home care. The Veterans Aid and Attendance (A&A) Pension benefit provides up to $1,732/month for wartime veterans, up to $1,113/month for surviving spouses and up to $2,054/month for a married veteran.
The Veterans Aid and Attendance workshop will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 on Oakwood Common’s campus at 16351 Rotunda Drive in Dearborn.
“We’ve found that there are many eligible individuals who are unaware that this benefit event exists,” said Mary Granata, director of sales for Oakwood Common. “This workshop is free and helps people learn about valuable resources and funds that may be available to them.”
Beth Marshall and Dwight Cloutier from the Veteran Support Center will conduct the workshop presentations. Representatives from Oakwood’s Senior Care Solutions will also participate, including how this benefit can apply to home care.
Attendees will receive information about how to qualify and complete the VA forms.
“Each time we offer this workshop, it fills up very quickly,” added Granata, who encourages people to call in advance.
For more details and to make a reservation to attend this free workshop, call 313-253-9597.
