My dad was approved for a pension and aid and attendance. At the time we submitted the paperwork, my dad was at the beginning stages of his stroke and the doctor was unclear of his competency. Therefore, the VA has requested a fiduciary be appointed. My dad is much better now and very coherent; however, we are still handling all of his financials and insurance affairs. It is a load even for us. We are unclear as to whether we should advice him to claim himself competent or not at this point. He has all his faculties about him just a little slow in responding. Does anyone have any advice? We want to do what is right for our dad, but we also don't want to make things more difficult for all of us in the long run.
