First THANK YOU for supporting us! My Dad (the vet) passed away in April and my Mom had to accept his social security which put her income over the GAFC level at her assisted living home. Her rent doubled because she was no longer eligible for GAFC and her income is far less than her expenses. Dad had A&A and thanks to veteranaid.org I found out Mom was eligible for A&A too. I applied back in June and we have gotten 2 postcards...the first to say they had received the application and another about 3 weeks ago saying to be patient that they are still processing. If this A&A doesn't come through we are going to need to pull her out of her AL and this would just kill her, she is so happy there. Would you suggest calling the regional VA to light a fire or will that just tick them off? Thanks!
