Recap: I am in the process of filing for aid and attendance for my almost 94 year old father who resides in assisted living. His monthly SS payment covers only about one-half of his monthly charge, so my brother and I cover the other half. His assets were used earlier in 2014 when he was on private pay in a rehab and nursing center. 1. Do I use Form 21-8416 or Section X on 21-527EZ for his medical expenses? He has more than 4 providers, so I assume I would need to attach an additional sheet with the 527 showing those expenses. 2. On Form 21-4138, statement in support of claim, should I detail services offered by his facility to support his needs, or do I emphasize his medical needs? Obviously these overlap. Should I use both blank pages to support his claim, or would the VA prefer a shorter statement? I've already found elsewhere on this site a VA regulation about Aid and Attendance that should be included on the statement. Still true? 3. Section VII, Form 21-527EZ----I am a joint owner of my father's checking account. I've been assisting him with bill paying for over a year. All money from the account is used only for his expenses. Will my name on his account cause a problem? 4. Form 21-2680 or VDVA Form 10? He is scheduled for an appointment with his doctor this week. His doctor has not seen him for almost 6 months, so are we allowed to tell the doctor what we've observed. His doctor communicates with assisted living and home health by phone and changes Dad's meds after test results as needed that way. I also have the last report from the cardiologist. Should a copy of this report be sent too? I'm uncertain about what is too much information to send. I don't want to delay his acceptance by including too little at the beginning. I so appreciate your site. It has provided an immense amount of information, and I'm still reading posts to be sure I've covered everything.
