Veterans returning from active duty face a unique set of challenges – especially if they have been injured.

Veterans returning from active duty face a unique set of challenges – especially if they have been injured. Following years of service and the resulting wear and tear on the body and mind, it is not uncommon for veterans to require assistance with activities of daily living. Fortunately for veterans and their caregivers, there are assisted living options that can help make the long-term care process smoother for all involved.

In general, there are two ways eligible veterans can obtain assistance with long-term care living options: they can receive benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or they can apply for residency in a Veteran’s Home. Veterans who served in the active military and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable may qualify for VA health care benefits. Current and former members of the Reserves or National Guard who were called to active duty by a federal order or completed the full period for which they were called or ordered to active duty may also be eligible.

The link below contains information to help you navigate the benefit programs available from the VA. Read on the learn whether you or your loved one are eligible, how to apply, and what programs are available in Nevada.
