YES! However, I don't know if your father would have had to received money from the VA for a service connected disability. The VA will assign a percentage to the disability. For example, my father was 100% service connected and my mother is entitled to living assistance money. I am her primary caregiver and we did apply for and was approved for "Aid and Attendance". It is only a small amount compared to what the living assistance home would received, but it helps with her personal care needs, etc. I would encourage you to contact your local VA regional office and find out what that amount may be. I do want to caution you, that if your mother is eligible for "Aid & Attendance", please know that it may take time to start receiving the benefits. It does take time. I hope this helps you.
