Hello everyone. I want to apply for the A&A benefit for my 88yr old dad who is in a nursing home and physically unable to complete the application himself. He is still mentally sharp but there's no way he would be able to do this. So, I have a few questions... 1) Medical Evidence: I had the nursing home complete Form 21-0779 which states he's in a nursing home for skilled care and how much he pays. Do I need any other medical evidence for his application? 2) Which forms do I need him to sign that would allow me to handle the application process with the VA for him? Is it 21-0845 (3rd party disclosure), 21-22A (appt of individual as claimant's rep) or both or some others? 3) My dad lives in NJ... will the application be sent to the Newark VA office? Thanks in advance for any help.
