My brother who was a Vietnam veteran died Dec 2006. He never married and no children. My mother was his dependent. I applied for Aid & Attendance for my mother who is legally blind and now in stage 4 of Alz. After several months of letters back & forth she was approved for the A&A benefit. She receives $602 Soc. Sec. and her VA benefit is $362 for A&A. I am her only caregiver and I need to get help for caregiving. I have checked with Home Health care, they want 15-20$ hrly. AL is 2500 monthy and the nursing home cost is outrageous. I went to the VA to see if Mom should be getting more for the A&A since she now requires 24 hrs caregiving. I was told by the case mgr.this is the maximum amount ($362)for her since she receives Soc. Sec. I am going bankrupt trying to keep my brother's mortage (no mortgage insurance ,Mom lived with him) her medical care, depends and etc. I guess my question is I thought if she goes in the NH the A&A would pay more for needing the assisted living in daily activties. $362 will not even pay for Home Health Aide for a month. Does anyone know anything on this subject?
