    I am new to this - so please have patience. My mother is an 83 year old spouse of a deceased veteran (my father, who served in WW2, passed away in 2012). Her monthly income is approximately $2,800 (work pension + Social Sec. + income from interest and dividends). Her monthly care (for dressing, feeding, bathing, etc.) runs $4,800.

    I can't figure out the calculations for A & A. Can someone help explain?

    Thanks
    MAB

    MAB,

    Yes, you are on the right track. You can use this form here for "countable income" to determine your mother's status for expenses vs. income:

    If your mother's total assets falls around $80,000 or less (this does not include 1 house and 1 car) then she could be eligible for the Aid and Attendance benefit. For more information on eligibility and how to apply, please visit these pages:
