Thank you for your website, it has been a blessing! Hoping to hear back from VA soon. Very sad to see that even though my father qualifies and hopefully receives full benifits.....it is not enough to live in alot of areas in southern calif. Once he reached the "alzheimer" level it is over 3,000 at the least. They keep saying (and we agree) that he should remain close to his family, but what to do if they all live in an area that has too expensive of alzheimer care. We have all lived here BEFORE the prices got so high...and do not have the $ to provide any more for him....(truck drivers, waitress). His physical health is good, so he isn't ready for nursing homes (medi-cal), yet. We do not want to put him in a home with more severe alzheimer residents then his JUST because it is all we can afford. Sweetest dad in the world...and we are all very sad.
