Thursday, May 21, 2015 with Carilyn Ellis at 2:00 PM ET, 1:00 PM CT, 12:00 PM MT and 11:00 AM PT
According to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, there are about 22 million Veterans in the United States, roughly 7% of the total population. It is inevitable that you will work with Veterans as professionals who work with aging populations. It is important to know the benefits available to Veterans, and more importantly the process of accessing those benefits. This webinar will focus on the process of enrollment and engaging the supportive healthcare benefits available through the VA (including caregiver support, respite, in home health etc). We will also touch on compensation and pension, loans and the many other support options available to Veterans. This presentation will give you practical steps to help you understand, direct and walk alongside your Veterans who are seeking healthcare and additional benefits through the VA.
