  • (1888PressRelease) October 17, 2011 - Severna Park, MD - Veterans Financial Inc. is a national company with a single focus: to provide sound financial advice to their country's veterans and their families who may now or in the near future need assistance either in an independent or assisted living community, a nursing home setting, an adult day center or in their own home through a home care agency. They are focused on enabling senior citizens to protect and preserve assets for their current and future medical care needs. Further, they help clients develop a plan to secure a lasting financial legacy for future generations. Their advisors have counseled more than 35,000 families and conduct hundreds of workshops each year on the subjects of the VA's Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit, Medicare/Medicaid, prescription drug benefits, taxation, long-term care insurance, annuities, and asset preservation. Their goal is to ensure that every senior strategically enhance their financial security as their need for long term care arises.

    Kris-Leigh Assisted Living communities allow their Veteran residents to remain as independent as possible, while providing assistance when needed. Veterans and their spouses maintain dignity and respect in a home-like setting, while enjoying the peace of mind Kris-Leigh Assisted Living offers them. They are provided with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) including: bathing, dressing, laundry, housekeeping, medications, transferring, and transportation. Kris-Leigh has on-site medical staff, comprised of a Registered Nurse (RN), numerous caregivers and a visiting Medical Doctor (MD) to oversee the day-to-day medical needs of residents. For its Veterans and spouses, Kris-Leigh Assisted Living is a perfect option when daily skilled nursing care is not needed, but living at home independently is not a realistic option.

    Kris-Leigh Assisted Living offers Veterans and their spouses an alternative to the medical and institutional care of a nursing home. Its communities are designed to respond to the individual needs of senior Veterans. Cost and funding assistance varies, however their communities are typically less expensive than the medical model of the nursing home. The Veterans Administration offers Aid and Attendance as part of an "Improved Pension" Benefit that is largely unknown. This Improved Pension allows for Veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in eating, bathing, dressing, undressing, medication dosing, or taking care of the needs of nature to receive additional monetary benefits. Assisted care in an Assisted Living facility qualifies for such benefits. This most important benefit is overlooked by many families with Veterans or surviving spouses who need additional monies to help care for ailing parents or loved ones. This is a "Pension Benefit" and is not dependent upon service-related injuries for compensation. Aid and Attendance can help pay for care in an Assisted Living facility.

    Kris-Leigh Assisted Living invites Veterans Financial Inc. into their communities monthly to assist Veterans' with questions and financial advice. This is just another example of how Kris-Leigh Assisted Living strives to go above and beyond to provide their guests with the best communities to live in. They offer an environment that not only cares for fiscal needs of their guests, but provides them with tools for better living.

    Kris-Leigh Assisted Living is licensed to provide I, II and III Level of Care. It offers their residents a host of services in addition to assisted living, such as: hospice care, on-site rehabilitation services, short term/stay care, and memory impaired care programs. Kris-Leigh Assisted Living provides residents with dignity, understanding, security, and the highest quality of care. They strive to delight residents while giving peace of mind to their family members, when they need it most.
