“When someone thanks me for my service I generally reply, it was an honor and a privilege” Rodney Widenhouse, United States Navy Veteran, resident at Standiford Place in Modesto, California.
At Holiday, we have the honor and privilege of serving the United States veterans that have risked and sacrificed so much for our country. In our mission to help older people live better, we take pride in our long history of celebrating our veterans. Whether it’s through the unique Veterans Wall of Honor found in each of our communities, or the chance to chat over a cup of coffee, we’re committed every day to celebrating those who’ve served our country.
When looking for a new home as you age, a significant part of your search is finding a sense of community and belonging through shared experiences with your new neighbors. With veterans living in all of our Holiday communities, you’re sure to find a fellow veteran to connect with.
If you’re a veteran, it’s important to know that the VA provides monthly pension payments to wartime veterans who meet certain age or disability requirements, and who have income limitations. The VA Aid and Attendance, or Housebound benefits programs provide additional monthly payments for qualified veterans and survivors.
To learn more, eligibility criteria can be found here and here. You can also visit The Directory of Veterans Service Organizations and seek assistance from the listed Veterans service organizations to understand how your income will be calculated by the VA for eligibility.
