The Veterans Aid and Attendance Council was started by Claire M. Thoms in memory
of her mother-in-law, Margaret F. Morgan; a WWII Army Nurse. In providing care for her mother-in-law, she became
familiar with the challenges facing veterans in attaining health care benefits under the Improved Pension Benefits program
of the Veterans Administration.
Claire Thoms started the VAAC to promote awareness
among nursing homes, assisted living and healthcare providers of the benefits afforded veterans and their spouses under the
VA's Improved Pension Benefits program.
After six years of promoting the availability of the Enhance Pension
Benefits for our Veterans I can announced that the word is spreading.
Unfortunately the instances of fraud and
misinformation has also grown.
The VAAC is redoubling our efforts to meet our mission to provide accreditation
and certification of service providers meeting the Council's highest standard of professional conduct.
