Thanks so much, for the accurate information. I feel confident that I will be able to send this claim on my own, because of this site. I am working on the aid and attendance pension, for my Mom. On her Doctor's evaluation, must the Dr. specifically state, that she requires 24/7 aid and attendance? Or if the Dr. mentions she needs help dressing, walking, cooking, and taking her medication- is this enough? Also, are there a minimum amount of payments that must be exchanged with my Mom and an at home, live in relative, caregiver?
