Veterans Care Coordination

Provides assistance to veterans and their families via free screening and application assistance. If a veteran or spouse appears eligible for the benefit, VCC will assist with care services during and after the application approval process and will continually assist with VA documentation requirements and expense monitoring to ensure continued eligibility. Seniorcorp works with VCC by providing an initial screening for veterans and their families, sending in professional referrals to VCC requesting that a representative reach out to the family, and following along in the approval process as needed.
