    Does anyone here know anything about the VA Nursing homes? I keep trying to find out more about them but don't seem to be getting anywhere.
    Is there a website or direction I can start to find out the quality of these homes and whether or not the AID AND ATTENDANCE could be used in these facilities?
    Thanks.

    You need to look locally in the area where your loved one lives. Should be able to contact the VA hospital there and ask or do a google search for it.

    They do accept A&A, but only the veteran can reside in a VA home and not the spouse or widow.

    Rita,

    This is going to vary from one home to another. Much depends on the size of the city and how old the facility is etc. It would be highly recommended that you would visit and tour the facility just as you would any other place you might consider placing a loved one.
