FYI

I haven't seen many messages regarding Veterans but if your loved one or family member has a Veteran's disability then the VA might be another source to look at for health care and nursing home placement.  Currently, my wife is in a Nursing Home paid for by the VA.  The cost of her being at the home doesn't affect her Social Security or her VA Disability nor affect our total income.

Are you saying the VA pays for all her nursing home costs and she doesn't have to use her SS or VA disability pay , or other income, to pay for anything?

Is that only for the veteran or for the veteran's spouse, too?
