Assisted living and senior care has made tremendous advancements over the last 15 years. There have been amazing improvements to lifestyle, culinary services, personal residences, activities, and other things that contribute to a rewarding retirement experience. Every senior deserves a comfortable, healthy, safe, enjoyable retirement experience following a lifetime spent working, raising families, and in the case of veterans, serving their country.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (also known as the VA), in its ongoing effort to provide strong support to its valued service personnel cover assisted living care for veterans and their spouses. This benefit extends to all members of the armed forces who have served at least 90 days of active duty during wartime over the course of their career.
If you’re searching for this benefit for yourself or a loved one, it might be listed under simply *aid and attendance*. Finding the best senior care accommodations, whether it’s for assisted living, memory care, or independent living, is a challenge all its own.
Once you’ve find a place to call home for your family, often determining how to pay for life in a beautiful senior living community is a question many families have to answer. The aid and attendance benefit varies according to marital status and other factors, but regardless of your individual situation, if you or a spouse has served during wartime, you can get help paying for assisted living services.
As an assisted living community in Ventura, we are compassionate to the fact that how to pay for assisted living is one of the most asked questions facing families. Knowing this benefit is available can help your family plan for assisted living accommodations in the future, and help relieve some of the emotional and financial stress that can develop during the transition to a senior living community.
If you’re exploring retirement options for a family member or loved one, whether the best fit for them is active independent living, assisted living, or memory care, we understand all of the decisions that you must make. Fortunately, you don’t have to have all of the answers before you begin exploring places to call home. You’re welcome to contact us to ask general questions about senior living, discuss payment options, seek advice about how to pay for assisted living, and of course tour our community to meet our team and get acquainted.

My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
Staff is very helpful and always concerned about my Mother’s needs, the interior and grounds maintenance is exceptional. Dining provides healthy menus to choose from. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. Best decision we ever made was bringing my mom here.
