Hi, My Mother who lives in an assisted living facility in Pennsylvania after having a stroke applied for Aid and Attendance in January 2008. At the time of her application (and with all the required documentation) the VA stated that "your Mother has a strong application" for Aid & Attendance. He also said that it could take up to a year "during times of war" to receive approval. And everything I have read seems that it can take up to a year or longer for processing. Can anyone who has received approval for aid & attendance share their experiences with how long the processing time took for them? Thank you.
