November Is an Important Time to Educate Veterans and their Families

November is a time to especially honor Veterans and provide care for these heroes, so Jennifer feels it’s important to continue educating the community.

“It is the highest honor for us to be able to care for our Veterans,” Jennifer shares. “We’re here to serve those that have put their lives on the line to protect us. It is our turn to help them, so we do this by providing education, resources, and guidance to help with the process to seek approval through the Veterans Affairs (VA). There are two programs they can assist with – the VA Homemaker program and the Aid & Attendance Benefit Program, so we can really help”

How We are Helping with Continued Education

This month, Assisting Hands will be doing presentations at assisted living facilities, as well as running sponsorships on local TV stations, such as WTVO, Fox 39, and, educating Vets on the services they offer.

Assisting Hands Rockford also provides in-home care and individualized services to people of all ages, in many situations.
