My mother 93 is pretty much housebound with poor mobility and dementia. She is very low income receiving SS of around $600 and a spousal VA pension of around $200 monthly. I'm her caretaker and occasionally pay a sitter for a little break. Mother is in good physical health except for mobility issues. As her mobility decreases she is requiring more and more assistance with bathing and going to toilet etc. I feel like Aid and Attendance would really help her out as sitters are very expensive. How does it work? Would her regular $200 pension go away? Is Aid and Attendance solely to be used for someone coming in to help or can the money be used for supplies etc. Does the money have to be used up entirely every month? Would a certain amount of savings disqualify her, house, land or the fact that she lives with me? Sorry so many questions just overwhelmed by all of this. Also mother is not able to get out to go to VA office and probably not able to sign anything. If I could help get this going know would be a great help but just so overwhelmed by the process and plus all the other responsibilities I have. Hardly ever leave the house anymore.
