If dad is approved for an in home caregiver pension through the VA, can we continue using our current in home caregivers?
My dad qualifies and we have applied for in home caregiver pension through VA. Waiting for the approval. We have 24 hour in home care for them (ages 90 and 91 both with alzhiemers/dementia diagnosed by their physician). Because of the high care, familiararity and love provided by our current care givers, a private family, can we continue using them if my dad is finally approved for this pension? They are also less expensive than any 'company' that provides in home care. Myself and siblings fill in an average of two days a week to give our caregivers days off. Are there restrictions in using our chosen caregivers?
