Mission: To assist veterans who protected our freedom to stay in their homes and live with dignity.
Our exclusive VetAssist® Program helps veterans, or their surviving spouses, apply for a little-known Department of Veterans Affairs benefit to pay for assistance with activities of daily living. After the file is submitted, we provide home care while the VA reviews the claim.
We provide a 0% loan so services can begin immediately. The loan is reimbursed by funds from the VA upon approval of the benefit.
The VetAssist Program also furnishes continuing customer service and on going compliance monitoring, all with no out-of-pocket costs.
Veterans Home Care was founded in 2003, after Edith Sperling, mother of our founder, Bonnie Laiderman, passed away from cancer. Late in Edith’s illness, Bonnie learned of a Department of Veterans Affairs pension known as “Aid & Attendance.” It helps veterans or their surviving spouses receive personal care services to help them retain their quality of life and stay in their homes.
Edith was the widow of a Korean War veteran and would have qualified, but by the time Bonnie applied for the pension on her mother’s behalf, it was too late.
Edith passed before the approval process was complete. Bonnie vowed to help make this pension available to as many deserving veterans as she could, and Veterans Home Care was born.
At Veterans Home Care, we’re dedicated to helping veterans who have proudly served their country, or their surviving spouses, get the benefits they deserve.
Even after you receive your pension, our VetAssist® Program keeps working for you

About the VA Pension
About the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension benefit
In 1952 Congress passed Title 38 of the United States Code, creating what we now call the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and authorizing benefits for veterans. One of these benefits is the Non-Service Connected Pension, with “Aid & Attendance.” (Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension benefit.)
Even though the pension has been around for 60 years, very few people know about it or understand how it works. Veterans Home Care has more than 15 years’ experience successfully helping veteran families apply for and receive the pension.

Every job and business has its challenges. VHC is no different in that regard, but it is honestly very hard for me to come up with what I would define as a con or drawback. I guess the only negative experience that comes to mind is when we have to tell a deserving veteran or spouse that we are unable to assist them through our VetAssist Program due to a component of the eligibility criteria that he or she doesn't meet. Those are always very hard conversations to have.
