is there any help that the VA can give to help in assisting with the care my father needs at home. All of the children work and my mother is ubable to lift and bathe as needed.Can they actually have someone to and sit with her to assist in these types of activities. PLEASE HELP
The VA process can take several months and involves tons of paperwork. It is a great benefit but not one you can count on in the immediate future. I've been told it can take 3 to 6 months for benefits to start; however, they are retroactive to the date the application is received. If patient dies during that time, you would still receive benefits from date of application through date of death.
There are also independent insurance agents, which will provide the assistance you need if you have the right insurance company.
