Veterans Benefits

Cascades of Tucson is proud to be home to many of our country's service men and women. We want to do everything we can to ensure that those who've sacrificed for our country receive all the help they need to live comfortably. If you're a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, you may qualify for the Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension (also known as the A&A Program). This program is specially designed to help veterans and their surviving spouses who require the attendance of a caregiver to assist with the activities of daily living including eating, bathing, dressing and monitoring medications. Assisted care and supportive care in a community – whether provided by a third party or the community itself – qualify as part of this program.
