My mother now receives a small death pension as the surviving spouse of my veteran father. Her health has now deteriorated after a stroke where she needs in home assistance or she will ultimately need to move to an assisted living facility. I'm wondering what I need to do to go from the basic pension and add Aid and Attendence? I'm thinking I would not need a complete new application. Would I need just to submit a Drs statement and a new diagnosis justifying the assistance, or something else? Thanks.
