to provide charitable temporary emergency financial assistance for all financially and medically disadvantaged and disabled
U.S. citizens over the age of 65 who meet the criteria of the Veteran's Administration aid and attendance disability pension

benefit. Aging Vets seeks to close the gap for Veterans caught in the distance between an application for assistance from
the VA to the time that assistance is released to them by the VA; A Financial gap that can be devastating to a veteran on
a fixed or no other income source due to the disability. The VA normally takes 6 to 8 months to process and make a determination
on the claimant's pension application.

qualified individuals to hire and begin receiving home personal care services from a screened, qualified and licensed home
care agency in the comfort and security of their home during the 6 to 8 months timetable it takes the VA to process and disperse
an award determination for the disability pension benefit.
