Helping Families Find their Way

You'll always know what to do next with our "Roadmap to VA Benefits Planning."

  • Loving Care

    The first priority for everyone is to make sure that Mom, Dad or your Loved one is getting exactly the kind of care they need. As people age, more help from others makes for a safer and healthier environment. Have questions about appropriate care? We can help you.

  • Wartime Service Documents

    Never send originals to the VA. Only very specific documents are acceptable in order to process a case. We have the guidelines for obtaining them and some helpful hints if they are lost. Get the guidelines HERE

  • Documenting Appropriate Health Care

    Eligibility requires that medical expenses are necessary and appropriate, among other factors. We can send you a our worksheet, "3 C's of Proper Care," which describes the criteria the VA may look for.

  • Financial Analysis for Tax, Benefits and Medicaid

    The worst thing families can do, and the most common mistake they make, is to embark on a course of action in order to get the Aid and Attendance Benefit, only to disqualify their senior for Mediciad benefits in their time of greatest need. Planning for wbad case contingencies is one of our primary tasks.

  • Specialized Estate Planning

    Many families require estate planning which includes powers of attorney, health care directives and trusts. Only VA Accredited attorneys should be involved in the process if you are contemplating an application. Further, the rules for handling trust funds are far more complex than for ordinary investments. We're here to help every step of the way.

  • Legacy for a Lifetime and Beyond
