There are restrictions on VA Benefits and it can take 6+ months to receive them (however, I believe they are retro active once approved). The Veteran had to be serving during period of ware (WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, Desert Storm, etc.). They also had to have a minimum number of days service in what is considered a theater of war (it is not very many days as I recall). Widows' of veterans qualify for assistance as well.

Go to the Senior Living tab at the top of the page. Click on assisted living and then on costs of senior living. There is a section on VA Aid and Attendence. Do any of the ALs in your area accept Medicaid after a certain number of years of private pay?
