I'm back . . . I placed my mother into an assisted living facility but it did not work out for us for many reasons. (the facility and lack of services she required, her inability to adapt and her constant crying and begging me to take her home). I couldn't handle the self imposed guilt of leaving her there so I have brought her home to live with me again. In just a few weeks, however, she has become so difficult to take care of I am going to have to bring in additional help (bathing, bathroom assistance, daycare)
I am here asking anyone for information regarding the Veterans Homebound Benefits. My mother is unable to leave the home unassisted, has dementia, numerous strokes have left her partiallly paralyzed.
Can I hire someone (anyone I choose - whether or not they are RN's or LPN's or CNA's?) to help care for her and still receive VA benefits for her or do I have to go thru an agency that handles these things?
back to square one . . .
