Have you tried Medicaid [which is different from Medicare]? Depending on your State and what programs they offer, they might provide some help during the week. Or train and pay a relative to be a caregiver.

When it comes to 24 hour caregiving, Medicaid would request that your Dad move into a nursing home.... thus, Medicaid would pay for his room/board and care for as long as he is there. Now, if Dad owns a house, Medicaid could place a lien on the house so they can be reimbursed for the funds that were used. Maybe it is time to sell Dad's house [if he is an owner], downsize, and use the equity to bring in caregivers.

Or as you mentioned, wait and see what programs are available through the Veteran Administration.
