WELCOME TO CHARLES E. SWISHER VFW POST 1924
At some point in their later years, most older adults will need some type of senior care. While many people immediately think of nursing homes when they think of residential care for seniors, assisted living can be a better option for seniors who need some assistance in their day-to-day lives but do not need regular medical care.
Military veterans are an especially at-risk group for abuse and mistreatment in nursing homes. An often-neglected group, veterans, after serving their country, are commonly left without sufficient support systems, friends & family networks, and mental and physical health care services.
This guide describes the senior services available in the region and the cost of assisted living in various parts of California. It compares assisted living to other types of care and provides free and low-cost resources to help seniors cover the costs of assisted living.
End-of-life planning for veterans involves more than writing a will and buying life insurance, although these things are important. As an honorably discharged veteran, military funeral honors may be available to you.
If so, you earned the right to join our ranks. If not you are eligible to join the American Legion that also meets at the Post.
