Elderly Veterans

"It takes a hero to be one of those men [& women] who goes into battle."

~ Norman Schwarzkopf

According to the 2012 U.S. Census brief, Veterans age 65 or older numbered in excess of 12.4 million. These Veterans served in conflicts around the world including World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and even in the Persian Gulf War. As Veterans age, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will provide benefits and services that address a variety of issues including the changing health risks they face, as well as financial challenges through VA benefits and health services.

You may be eligible for a wide-variety of benefits available to all U.S. military Veterans.

In our area there are VSO’s (Veteran Service officers) with the Utah Department of Military and Veteran Affairs (UVDMA).

What makes the VSO at the Area Agency on Aging – Five County AOG unique is that social workers can travel to the homes of the veterans who live in more rural and remote areas and/or who are homebound.
