Of the approximately 21 million veterans living in the United States, thousands need assistance with basic daily activities. About 10 million of these veterans are reaching well into their 60s, 70s, and 80s, while another 2.6 million have recently returned from war. These men and women who served their country come from a range of backgrounds and experiences, and they all have their own specialized personal care needs. Sunny Days respects and appreciates the great contributions made by American veterans and seeks to give back to these heroes through our home care services for veterans.
As veterans of the Vietnam War era continue to age and a new generation of American veterans return home, the need for veteran home care is rising. Throughout the past three years, the number of primary care visits handled by the U.S. Veterans Administration has risen by 50%. This shows the high number of veterans who are suffering from chronic physical conditions. While the VA handles their medical issues, these veterans often need extended personal care services in their home. Sunny Days provides home care for veterans of any age with nearly any type of personal care service.
A custom-made plan for veterans home care
Sunny Days offers in-home care for veterans across the Pittsburgh area who are looking for assistance with daily tasks and companionship from the comfort of their own home. To thank each veteran for their brave and selfless service, we strive to provide them with the highest quality care, taking into account specific personal needs. We offer custom-made care plans tailored to each veteran’s needs and preferences. Our home care services include basic assistance with tasks such as laundry and linens, meal preparation and running errands. Veterans with more advanced needs can also rely on Sunny Days In-Home Care for bed-to-wheelchair transfers, incontinence care, and bathing, dressing, and grooming assistance.
Financial assistance to help cover the cost of in-home care for veterans
Some veterans may qualify for a Department of Veterans Affairs pension called Aid & Attendance and Housebound. This program provides veterans in need with additional monetary assistance to cover the cost of in-home care. Sunny Days can advise you in taking advantage of these benefits and work out a payment arrangement that is appropriate for your family’s resources.
Whether you simply need assistance with meal prep or you need extensive assistance with prosthetic devices, transportation or other difficulties, Sunny Days offers the highest level of home care for veterans in the Pittsburgh area.
