Thank You to the Attendees of the Elder Benefits Workshop

On February 28, the Summit County Veterans Service Commission hosted an Elder Benefits Workshop that covered three important topics: 1) How to file for VA compensation and pension benefits, 2) Medicare and Medicaid benefits, and 3) VA home-based primary care benefits.

The workshop was attended by a significant number of elder Veterans who received valuable information about how to file for VA benefits, navigating nursing home and assisted living choices, and home-based primary care services from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The VSC provided free services to file for VA benefits and the Direction Home Akron Canton organization also offered guidance on having nursing homes and assisted living facilities. 

The event was well received by the attendees, who appreciated the free services and resources, and gathered to share lunch together.

The Summit County Veterans Service Commission plans to organize more workshops throughout 2024 to provide elderly Veterans with the necessary information and resources to support their health.

For more information or additional resources, call the Summit County VSC at 330-643-2830.
