My 90 year old father-in-law (WWII veteran) was in good health, lived alone in his own home, fiercely independent since being widowed ten years ago. Then he had a stroke in August. After 3 months of rehab, he's now been moved to skilled nursing. My husband and I have begun getting the paperwork together to apply for his A&A. Between the info from this site and forums, I think I have what we need; however, I'd appreciate any additional input. We talked to an elder care law attorney early on about the VA benefits and they wanted $5000 to "handle all the paperwork". That seemed a big outrageous. Though, at this point, between all the other issues we've had to deal with these past few months, I'd almost be tempted to pay it just to be assured that everything goes through without a hitch! I have certified copies of his military discharge papers already and I am working on completing the following forms: 527EZ 2680 0845 8416 21-22A 0779 (just this morning discovered I need this one!) Am I missing anything else? Thank you so much!
