Find Care & Housing
Some areas of the country have limited in-home care for veterans. You'll have to check with your local VA to know if you live in one of them. You should check with the VA, anyway, as there may be benefits you aren't aware of.
Good luck,

Just learned something from a recent letter the VA sent out, reminding me that there are so many aspects to VA care.

The VA, according to the letter broadly addressing what it may provide, may assist with special home adaptations, offering grants to adapt a home for disability use. That might include a ramp. I'll be checking this out myself for our own use.

My husband is homebound but has to be on dialysis at a facility. He's not able to walk, so I hire an ambucab to transport him three times a week, 7 miles each way for $210.00 a week. He is a veteran, but served during peace time. Are there benefits to defray the cost of his being transported for dialysis purposes?

The VA will pay for some in-home care even if it is a family member who is the caregiver.

Mocha, has he registered or applied to the VA at all? He'll have to first be signed up to get health care help from the VA. If he has a service connected disability, there will be an exam to determine the extent of that disability.

Depending on the level of care for which he qualifies, at that time you could inquire as to assistance for the ramp.

However, there's a quicker way and that's to contact one of the veteran's services organizations such as the American Legion or VFW, or a veterans agency through your local county or state government. Anyone of them can provide you with assistance in applying for benefits for your father.

I just Googled "Brewster, Massachusetts veterans services" and got several hits. Try that, then contact the various agencies for assistance. They could likely tell you whether there is any assistance for ramp installation before he even applies. It may or may not be something the VA covers.
