I am interested to know whether anyone can give me accurate information about WHO is eligible for VA benefits. My husband has dementia and, undoubtedly, I will need some help. I prefer (doctor does as well) to keep him at home as long as possible. Several people have suggested that we apply for VA benefits for help in caring for him at home, as he was in the Army. He was not involved in a war, although I'm quite sure his Army stay overlapped with the Korean War. He has no service-related disability. At least two persons continue to insist that we apply for these benefits, stating that he does not matter whether he was in service during wartime, whether or not he has a disability, AND that current income does not matter. We have been told by the local office (without an application) that his income/resources are too high. He has the normal retirement that a State employee has (was a teacher). Both individuals who insist we make an application have more income/resources than we. I agree with others I've seen on this website - the VA or any other government programs are (intentionally, I think) difficult to understand and, seemingly, hard to apply for or receive. Any thoughts or helpful suggestions?
