My father was a Vietnam veteran. He served during war time in the Army. He received health care from the VA prior to his death in 2003. My mom has frontal lobe dementia and she is in the hospital right now. We have to set up 24 hour care for her, but her income is nowhere near enough. We want to bring her home, but need assistance to pay for home care. She currently receives a small retirement from the United States postal service and she received divorced spouse benefits from social security disability that is from my dad. Is there anyway she can get assistance? They were married for 15 years and have 4 kids together. They divorced due to domestic violence. I am desperate to keep her in her home, it's the only place she knows where she is. She is in the late stages of her Frontal Lobe Dementia and they don't expect her to live for too many more years. Please advise. I have to decide this week if I want them to put her in a home that is SO bad or if we can bring her home and provide 24 hour care.
Does the fact that they divorced due to domestic violence make a difference?
