Hello...regarding the aid and attendance program, you should go to your local V.A. facility in your town to speak to someone regarding this program for spouses or go to: http://www.veteranaid.org/....and save that page on your computer...it will explain everything...there are different ways to get funds and yes it depends on when the veteran was in service and you need to have copies of his discharge papers and his DD214.....is the husband getting a V.A. pension now? Everything can be read on the veterans webpage with a contact number. Hope it works out for you.

Her assent as a spouse must be below 60,000 not including home. And her income must not be enough to cover the cost of in home caregiver services. They will add up her medical expenses, medocal ins premiums, and caregiver expences. If they total more that her monthly income she may qualify. We applied for mom and she is rec max benefits of 1149 mo. We tried in home care but had to move her to Adult Family Care home and benefits help pay for that. If you need any help feel free th private message me. I will share what I know and how we got benefits in 3 months. Take care, Ruth Anne

Yes, Aid & Attendance can assist with in-home care, but they would need to qualify. Here is a recent article about how the benefit works and how to qualify: hubpages/health/Veterans-Aid-and-Attendance-Benefits-Can-Help-You-Age-in-Place

Maybe. A&A eligibility depends on several factors, the first of which is the dates of the veteran's service. That is clearly shown on the VA web site. If you meet that criteria, then the amount of current income and value of assets come into play.

Find out about the first - dates of service. Then if you are OK there, look at income and assets. If you do not think you qualify you might want to talk to an eldercare law firm. If you meet all of the requirements, gather your paperwork and the local VA office can assist you.
