Home Care Franchises Make Veterans Lives Easier

We often talk about how franchising can be an ideal business situation for military veterans looking for a second career. Franchising, it turns out, can also provide a critical role for veterans who are suffering from ill health.

Not enough people know about the Aid and Attendance Program, which is a pension service provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for military veterans. A story in New Jersey’s Hudson Reporter explains that the program is used mostly by veterans for homecare in the last years of their life. Thus, it is a perfect opportunity for people working in the home care franchise sector to help in the lives of military veterans.

One Comfort Keepers franchisee, Eydie Shapiro, has been briefing Knights Of Columbus groups in New Jersey to inform them about the opportunity available through the program.

“The program is very well funded,” Shapiro said. “But only about 15 percent of what’s allocated ever gets used, first because people don’t know about it. And then when they find out about it, the application is daunting because they ask so many questions and they require a lot of back-up supporting documentation.”

You need to be 65 and have served during a declared war for more than 90 days to be available for the pension. But if you’re a franchisee working in homecare or health care, or looking to work in this sector, you can improve the lives of veterans, among other people.
