Shrewsbury Crossings to offer free veterans” seminar

American FlagShrewsbury – In recognition of Memorial Day, Shrewsbury Crossings will offer a free Veterans” Benefits Seminar, Tuesday, May 21, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.? A light supper will be served.? Patty Servais from Elder Resource Benefits Consulting is presenting. The Veterans” ?Aid and Attendance benefit provides funding for veterans and their spouse or surviving spouse to cover the cost of assisted living. This seminar will explain the benefits, eligibility requirements and how to apply.

“The Aid and Attendance benefit for veterans helps our residents offset the cost of assisted living, which enables them to have the quality of life, with assistance if they need it, that they deserve for having served our country,” said Kelly Marcimo, Director of Community Relations.

“We are grateful for their service and that the [U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs] provides this benefit. Many veterans don's realize this benefit is available so we are happy to host the seminar to get the information to [them],” she added.

According to Marcimo, many of those in need of assisted living are veterans of World War II and the Korean War, so this information is vital because those veterans are likely to be in need of assistance at this time in their life.

“The benefit is significant and can make assisted living a real possibility for many who need the support but think they can's afford it,” she explained.

Seating is limited, call 508-845-2100 or email kmarcimo@benchmarkquality.com to reserve your space.
