St. Louis, MO – Veterans Home Care, the exclusive provider of the VetAssist® Program, is celebrating its 13th anniversary of helping our wartime veterans or their surviving spouses receive the benefits they are entitled to from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). A little known needs based benefit called Aid and Attendance is available to veterans or surviving spouses who meet certain criteria based on military service, medical needs and monetary limitations to pay for in home care. Since 2003, the VetAssist Program has helped thousands of our clients receive this monthly pension so they can remain where they want to be – in the comfort of their home. “When I started this company 13 years ago I could never imagine that it would grow to become the largest organization of its kind in the United States,” said Bonnie Laiderman, founder and President of Veterans Home Care. “With the hard work and dedication to serving wartime veterans from all our employees, we have changed the lives of so many families that need in home care. It is a pleasure and honor to serve our clients and we show it every day.”
Founded in 2003, Veterans Home Care has grown to over 80 employees with offices in 10 states serving veterans and their families in 40 states. Virginia Havens, a longtime employee with the company, summed up what many employees feel when she wrote this heartfelt message of congratulations to Bonnie Laiderman, “What a wonderful day this is for the people who have been helped by VHC and the ones to come who will need help. Did anyone ever think it would be this grand and glorious of an operation and the number of people whose lives have been affected by the declaration of starting a company to help with the needs of veterans and spouses to receive help with ADL’S, stay in their home as long as possible and have the quality of life we all desire and need at the end of our time. Thank you for your dream and the reality of it!”
In addition to growing Veterans Home Care to become the largest provider of its kind in the industry, Bonnie has been a strong supporter of numerous charitable and social organizations with both a local and national impact. Wings of Hope and Lydia’s House have both benefited from Bonnie’s support to continue much needed services to our most vulnerable in need. Bonnie also is a member of the American Red Cross Tiffany Circle, a national society of women leaders. Bonnie serves as Chairperson for the American Red Cross Service Armed Forces Committee.
