Renaissance Marquis to Host VA Benefit for Assisted Living Seminars for Wartime Veterans and Surviving Spouses, Sept. 17

The seminar will focus on understanding the eligibility requirements and the application process.

ROME, Ga. (August 19, 2014) – Renaissance Marquis in Rome will host two pension benefit seminars for veterans and surviving spouses interested in learning more about VA benefits related to assisted living. The two-seminars will both be held on Wednesday, September 17, with a late-morning seminar starting at 11:00 a.m. and an early-evening seminar starting at 6:00 p.m. Renaissance Marquis is located at 3126 Cedartown Hwy. SW in Rome.

VA Aid & Attendance benefits are available to wartime veterans and surviving spouses to help pay for assisted living, personal care costs and those who need the “aid and attendance” of another person to avoid the hazards of daily life.

Eligibility requirements and understanding the application process will be the focus of the seminar led by Patty Servaes, founder of Elder Resource Benefits Consulting, an organization dedicated to helping seniors and their families understand the cost of senior care and potential funding.

“Working with the VA to determine which benefits a veteran qualifies for doesn’t have to be a confusing and frustrating process,” says Servaes. “We want to help guide veterans and their families through the process and make sure they have all of the documentation they need when applying for programs like the Aid and Assistance Pension Benefit.”

“Renaissance Marquis strives to be an educational resource to the entire Rome region for all issues related to the golden years,” says Renita Chambers, executive director. “It is a privilege to serve members of the Greatest Generation, and we want to do that with honor, respect, faith and integrity. This seminar is just another way for us to fulfill our mission.”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (706) 295-0014.
