My 90-year old mother is the widow of a WWII veteran and is currently living with my niece until she can get moved into an assisted living facility. She sold her home a year after my father died and she has exhausted the funds from the sale of that home paying for an apartment in an independent living facility. She now has a total income of $1060 per month (SS and a teeny pension) and has about $2000. in savings. My question relates to being able to qualify for A&A based on a medical and financial basis. I assume she will have no problem qualifying for the financial part because she doesn't even get enough money each month to pay for the new assisted living facility. My husband and I will help her out temporarily until she qualifies for some kind of additional financial aid. But, even though she is going into "assisted living" she still is able to take care of herself with respect to dressing, bathing and eating. She can walk without assistance most of the time, but occasionally uses a walker when she is feeling weak. She does have macular degeneration, a problem with her esophagus which limits what she can eat (and poses a risk of choking), occasional dizzy spells, and numbness in her feet. She has occasional memory lapses so she will need some assistance with med dosing, she can cook for herself (she has left the stove on...) if she uses a microwave, but she DOESN'T cook for herself if she is living alone. This is a long way around to asking if you think that the VA will deny her because she doesn't have enough health problems? Thank you so much for running this site and I look forward to your answer.
