Nearly 100 veterans learned about important benefits at a presentation by Attorney Henry Weatherby on August 29th at the Wallingford Senior Center. This presentation was part of the monthly Veteran’s Coffee House developed by Assisted Living Services, Inc. in conjunction with the Wallingford Senior Center.

The popular program is an opportunity for Veterans to get together on a casual basis.

This month’s featured speaker was VA accredited Attorney Henry Weatherby, Founding Principal of Weatherby & Associates, PC in Bloomfield. As a veteran himself, it is his mission to inform retired Veterans about all of their entitled benefits.

Attorney Weatherby shared valuable information about one little-known financial benefit in particular, Aid and Attendance, that can assist Veterans or surviving spouses with long term care expenses.

“All of the attendees expressed their gratitude for the valuable information Attorney Weatherby provided,” said Mark Halliday, Community Liaison for Assisted Living Services, Inc. in Meriden. He developed the program out of his great respect and deep admiration for veterans.

Each gathering includes free refreshments, a presentation and a discussion. New members are introduced and describe their service to the country.
