    My father in law does not have a service-connected disability and does not receive a pension at this time. My question -- if he does not have a service-connected disability, can we still apply for aid and attendance to help with his nursing home costs? (He has dementia and is transitioning from an adult family home to a skilled nursing facility).

    Yes providing his dates of service do fall in an Approved Period of War.

    This pension is NOT dependent upon service-connected injuries.
