   Nonprofit Brothers Redevelopment’s new Aging in Place Initiative helps veterans, their spouses and seniors discover all their benefits. With Brothers’ free Senior Services Navigation, trained staff helps veterans apply for lesser-known benefits, including the Aid and Attendance Program. It’s a valuable resource for veterans, increasing their monthly payments if they require care from a spouse or other person, or are housebound.

  Senior service coordinators also can explain and assist with Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Home and Community-Based Services(HCBS).

  Veterans and seniors may qualify for many no-charge, life-changing services they don’t know exist, including Brothers’ Home Modification and Repair program, furnace installation and repair, Paint-A-Thon, and other resources. Many veterans and seniors qualify for transportation assistance and a widening array of opportunities that Senior Services Navigation can identify and tap for them.

  Established in 1971, Denver-based nonprofit Brothers Redevelopment provides a range of housing and other solutions for the region’s low-income, elderly and disabled residents.
