Assisted Living for Veterans

How Assisted Living Supports Disabled and Senior Veterans

Veterans who come back home with disabilities may no longer be able to live in the homes they left. With some disabilities, veterans have a need for accessible housing, or may need support services if they are unable to live independently.

As they age, elderly veterans experience the same declines in function that all seniors do. When veterans get older, they may be unable to maintain the tasks of independent daily life, including hygiene, housekeeping, and meal preparation.

Assisted living facilities are communities where veterans live in an apartment or rented room. The community typically has shared living spaces, including a dining room and recreational areas with social and entertainment activities. At an assisted living facility, veterans can benefit from trained caregiver assistance, which can offer support for:

  • Hygiene, including bathing, dressing and toileting
  • Housekeeping, including laundry and cleaning
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication reminders
  • Medical care
