Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension
The Department of Veterans Affairs provides the Aid and Attendance Pension to eligible wartime veterans and their surviving spouses. This benefit can offset a significant portion of the long term care expenses in a Brookdale community. Depending on your situation, the benefit ranges from $1,094 to 2,019 per month and is tax free. Ask your Brookdale sales associate to introduce you to a provider that will discuss the VA's eligibility criteria with you.

Life Care Funding Group
Life Care Funding Group offers two methods of converting a life insurance policy into funds you can use for long term care or senior housing. The Assurance Benefit converts a death benefit into a long term care benefit without premium payments or wait periods. Benefit amounts are larger than a life settlement and the process is quick and uncomplicated. The benefit will cover every form of long term care and senior housing. A Life Settlement is the sale of an in-force life insurance policy to an investor that will set certain minimum requirements for age and policy size.
