Our StoryVeterans Home Care was founded in 2003, after Edith Sperling, mother of our founder, Bonnie Laiderman, passed away from cancer. Late in Edith’s illness, Bonnie learned of a Department of Veterans Affairs pension known as “Aid & Attendance.” It helps veterans or their surviving spouses receive personal care services to help them retain their quality of life and stay in their homes. Edith was the widow of a World War II veteran and would have qualified, but by the time Bonnie applied for the pension on her mother’s behalf, it was too late. Edith passed before the approval process was complete. Bonnie vowed to help make this pension available to as many deserving veterans as she could, and Veterans Home Care was born.
Our MissionTo assist veterans who protected our freedom to stay in their homes and live with dignity.
