My name is Luke Daniels. I work for an advocacy center called Veterans Guide. Our mission is to assist veterans with the array of issues they may face, including obtaining proper disability compensation, financial assistance, information on the GI bill, and more. We have created some helpful guides and will continously be adding more. Recently we also made a canculator that helps veterans calculate how much their VA rating should be, especially when it comes to combining ratings and complicated VA math.

It is also National Preparedness Month, and with the weather we’ve been having lately it is a good time to make sure you are prepared in case of a disaster.

  • Make sure you plan ahead for food, water, and essentials for yourself and any pets you have if you need to shelter in place.
  • Plan for transportation if you need help evacuating
  • Have a way to get emergency alerts about severe weather in your area
  • Download the Take Control in 1, 2, 3—Disaster Preparedness Guide for Older Adults. Use the worksheets and checklists in this guide to create your plan, then add it to your emergency kit or put it on your refrigerator as a visible reminder that you are prepared.

A message from Caring.com for senior veterans

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are over 18.2 million veterans aged 65 and above, many of whom require long-term care. Unfortunately, navigating the intricacies of available benefits can be daunting, particularly for retired veterans in their elderly years.
 
To address this issue and assist senior veterans and their families, we have created a comprehensive guide that explains various VA benefits, focusing on those applicable to seniors. This guide offers valuable insights into utilizing VA benefits to meet long-term care needs. It outlines eligibility requirements and provides a step-by-step application process to determine available options for financing their healthcare needs.
 
You can access our guide: https://www.caring.com/caregivers/veterans-benefits/#va-benefits-explained
 

Caring.com is a leading senior care resource for family caregivers seeking information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones. We have been featured by AARP, The Administration for Community Living, The National Legal Resource Center, and Forbes, as well as referenced by many governmental agencies and organizations across the Internet.

My name is Eric, and I represent Hill & Ponton, a law firm dedicated to fighting for veterans nationwide who were denied benefits by the VA. I recently came across Veteran Resources on your page https://towsonamericanlegion.org/index.php?id=45, and I was wondering if you were open to expanding that list and adding a new resource?

At Hill & Ponton, our core purpose is to assist veterans in obtaining the disability compensation they deserve. Additionally, we are dedicated to educating and increasing awareness about their daily challenges, including mental and physical health issues.

This is why we've developed several helpful resources that I believe could complement your existing list:


Veterans and their families face a ton of challenges, and we're all about making their lives easier. Our resources have made a positive impact on our readership, and we're eager to extend that support to your audience as well.
