Veterans Benefits

Maryland born novelist, Tom Clancy said, “The U.S. Military is us. There is no truer representation of a country than the people that it sends into the field to fight for it. The people who wear our uniform and carry our rifles into combat are our kids, and our job is to support them, because they’re protecting us.” We have our freedoms because these brave men and women protect us and our rights. As Americans we should, at the very least, feel an obligation to ensure proper care is provided to not only current military members, but also to retired veterans and their families.

Sifting through the abundance of information online regarding veteran assistance can be overwhelming but finding the best elderly assisted living facility in Carroll County is easy. Golden Crest is a licensed, family owned assisted living facility operating in Carroll County for more than 30 years. We provide a comfortable, friendly, safe environment for seniors who require personalized assistance and/or 24 hour aide and attendance. Golden Crest is committed to creating an affordable family atmosphere where residents can socialize and live in a home-like setting geared towards their specific needs, while maintaining their sense of independence and self-esteem.

How do you go about maximizing the much-deserved benefits from the VA? Many Golden Crest residents receive Veteran Benefits at one of the five convenient Hampstead or Westminster assisted living facility locations. The recipient, (whether it be the veteran, his/her spouse, or both) must meet a specific criterion. The local Bureau of Aging & Disabilities can assist with filling out the proper paperwork to make the most of the allowed benefits. The residents meeting the requirements are given a certain amount of money monthly to go towards their rent in a qualifying facility, such as Golden Crest.

Hopefully this explanation provides more understanding about veteran benefits in conjunction with getting your loved one the best long-term care available. These people protected us, we should reciprocate the favor, promote their welfare, and ensure they are provided with the finest care available.

Call Nancy (410-239-1224 ext. 1) for more information about Golden Crest and resources regarding the VA aide and attendance benefit. Do not make the mistake of leaving valuable monetary assistance on the table.
