Episode 7: Patriot Angels – VA Benefits Aid & Attendance

In this episode, Tuscan Gardens Senior Living’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Larry Pino & Suzette Graham, Patriot Angels Owner/CEO, discuss VA benefits with an emphasis on Aid and Attendance. Patriot Angels not only assists Veterans, but also their surviving spouses to secure these benefits.

In 2012, former Mrs. Alaska, Suzette Graham founded Patriot Angels to lead a change in helping U.S. Wartime Veterans get approved for their Aid and Attendance pension from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). 

Suzette has spent a lifetime advocating for the vulnerable. In February of 2000, Suzette received the “Heroism Award” from the governor of Alaska, Tony Knowles, for her lobbying efforts in getting the laws changed to better protect children in the custody of the foster care system. As Suzette’s passion for assisting the vulnerable came to fruition, she established a team of advocates dedicated to providing funding solutions and VA benefits navigation to Veterans, widows, families, caregivers, and communities. By utilizing veteran pension funds made available through the Veterans Administration, our veterans and their families can better afford their choice of accommodation in a senior living community, as well as alleviate the stress behind long-term funding.
