Like MagicMan mentioned, it is really helpful to have some outside help because the VA can be hard to navigate and their reps on the phone are not always well-informed, especially if you are looking at Aid and Attendance. We had a volunteer at the American Legion help us.
The VA has greatly improved its website too; sometimes you find info there that the VA staff won't tell you. If you haven't done so already, it might help to take a look around their website. They have an area on the site for geriatric veterans that should have some helpful info for your dad.
Best of luck. The VA can be painful to deal with as a bureaucracy, but the actual benefits are very helpful.
