My mother is the wife of a 100% veteran. She is now ill and needs home health care. She only has Medicare and they say she is not eligible for more than four hours of aide and not for long. Can you tell me if she is eligible for benefits from the Veterans Administration and how we can get them? I work full-time and don't really have the time to go down there. Mom had a silent heart attack and a mild stroke followed. She is now home and I need to know what help she can get.
