VETERANS BENEFITS

Veterans, you may be entitled to additional income to pay for home care services provided by Traditions of Hanover At Home. Many veterans are unaware of a Veterans' benefit called the Aide and Attendance Benefit.

To be eligible for this benefit:

  • You (or your loved one) served our country for at least 90 consecutive days of which one day was during war time. (The only exception is for certain dates during Vietnam.)
  • Your discharge needed to be anything but a dishonorable discharge.
  • You are at least age 65 (OR totally disabled.)

The maximum benefit amounts are:

  • $2,085 a month for a veteran with a spouse
  • $1,758 a month for a single veteran
  • $1,130 a month for a widow/widower
  • And this is a TAX FREE benefit!

Do you have questions regarding your eligibility for Veterans' benefits or need help through the process? We would be glad to help!  Please call 610-370-6694.

MARGARET B. MOELLER MEMORIAL FUND FOR ALZHEIMER'S HOME CARE COMPANIONS

The Margaret B. Moeller Fund for Alzheimer's Home Care Companions provides financial assistance to families in the Boyertown Area School District with members who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia in obtaining the services of in-home care companions, aides or other providers of respite care. If the Foundation determines that it cannot locate one of more recipients who reside in the Boyertown Area School District, it may make distributions to benefit families residing elsewhere in Berks County. The fund is designed to assist families who are not eligible for any other form of reimbursement for such services. Grants generally pay for several days of care for a specified period of time.

The fund was started by Margaret's husband, Bill, in gratitude for the support services his wife received from Chestnut Knoll At Home. The caregivers experience with Alzheimer's disease, and their compassioned care enabled Margaret to receive the care she required and allowed Bill the respite he needed.
