Call your local Veteran Service Officer too.

Jerry, are you living in a facility like Assisted Living or are you in an apartment?

If you are in a facility, there should be a social services department who can help you. Ask the doctor who visits or the nurses.

If you are living in an apartment by yourself, call the local VA. Do you have a Case Manager? I don’t know much about how the VA works, but there has to be someone there who can help you. Call your local area Agency on Aging. They have a ton of resources and will be more than willing to help.

You need Home Health Care. Someone needs to come out each day and help you. Short of that, maybe Assisted Living.
