Likely you can get help from the VA, but it's seldom a quick process. Find our your local veteran's representative by calling the nearest VA office. Talk to this person to see if there is a way that your case can be expedited. SS disability can take years to get in place, so I hope that you can get better service from the VA. Call your local social services or Area Agency on Aging to see if there is a way you can get respite care. Also, on your state website, you should be able to find the Nation Family Caregiver Support Program. They may be able to give you some assistance. Good luck,
