    Just wanted to know if it is Ok to sign the application for my mother. I am have power of attorney. The reason I ask this is she is 92 and located over 1000 miles in an assisted living facility. Signing documents is a problem and it's almost impossible to give her instructions.

    andypitt, you cannot sign the application for her. Even if you are power of attorney - the VA does not recognize POA. Here is a blog post I wrote about what to do if your mother cannot sign the application: http://www.veteranaid.org/blog/2015...r-name-on-the-aid-and-attendance-application/
