A Mission to Care for Our Veterans
As a Veteran, you made sacrifices for our country. You were there for us when we needed you, now let us be there for you. Many Veterans are unaware of the Veterans Aid & Attendance benefit. This benefit provides qualifying Veterans and surviving spouses a pension amount issued by the VA that allows for eligible candidates and their surviving spouses to access nonmedical in-home care services.
Right at Home Lafayette's professional caregiving team will work with you to create a customized care plan based on your personal needs and match you with a caring and compatible caregiver. All of our caregivers are insured and bonded, and go through rigorous interviews, background checks, and professional training to ensure they meet our high standards of service and compassion. Right at Home provides the right care, when and where you need it.
