In an effort to help veterans and surviving spouses navigate the benefits available from the Veterans Administration, The Fountains of Washington House will team up with Synergy HomeCare Oct. 26 for a presentation on Understanding Wartime Veterans Benefits.
The informational presentation, which is open to the public, will take place at 11 a.m. in the Sky Room at Washington House and is designed to help wartime veterans understand the sometimes overlooked or unknown benefits available to eligible recipients.
The faculty for this presentation is Patty Servaes, owner of the Servaes Consulting Group and founder of Elder Resource Benefits Consulting in Sudbury, Mass.
Servaes will focus on wartime veteran eligibility for a tax-free pension benefit from the Veteran’s Administration. These benefits may help offset the cost of Assisted and Memory Care Living and other lifestyle changes. For more information, contact Sonja Creech at the Washington House at 703-845-5000. Washington House is located at 5100 Fillmore Avenue.
