Elder law attorney Jim Koewler joins Suzanne to talk about presumptive qualifications for VA Compensation, particularly service during Vietnam, in which veterans are presumed to have been exposed to Agent Orange if certain disabilities have occurred.

At the 6 minute point, Jim talks about services administered through the health side of the Department of Veterans Affairs, the same group that runs the VA hospital. Available services include geriatric evaluation, adult day health care, respite care, and skilled home health care. There are also a number of services available, tied to being in a particular residence. They help support assisted living, residence at adult family homes, and others. To qualify, you have to qualify for VA Compensation or VA Pension, have to have income low enough to qualify, and if you don’t qualify for some other government benefits.
