Has anyone else ever run into the situation where their loved one has chosen to accept Social Security for their income denying Veteran benefits. She thought Social Security would be better and better health care so with that being said, we were wondering if she is still eligible to go into a Veteran's nursing home. We are trying to find the best care available for my grandma who has dementia and the Veteran's home in the area, is right in the same town and has the best care around. We were concerned she won't be eligible since she did not accept their benefits. Is this true? Anyone else deal with this before?
