My WWII vet father and mother cannot afford my father's at-home care he receives due to dementia. I have been paying for the attendant to come and care for him out of my pocket. I know that the amount paid by the veteran for unreimbursed medical expenses can be deducted from any income in calculating the pension amount. Can I count the expenses that I paid for in this category? Would it make any difference if I placed the funds in my father's and mother's account and my mother paid the expenses from their joint account? Or would this negate any benefit because the amount I deposited would be considered "income?" Thank you for your help.
