Thank you very much for your help on my previous question. I have a follow-up to that question. Based on the first attachment (M21-1MR, Part V, Subpart i, Chapter 3, Section D), it does appear to allow a family member to be paid for providing in-home care. How about room & board? Can we combine the in-home care by the family member with room & board (ie. rent, utilities, & food) as a package, similar to the way it is done by nursing homes & assisted living facilities? It says that "Documentation must be submitted." Would a written agreement for the care along with canceled checks be sufficient? Also, what types of care/assistance can a family member provide that is "countable" towards reducing a veterans' income? Thanks!
