Mental or Physical Incapacity

The VA provides benefits for veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in eating, bathing, dressing and undressing or taking care of the needs of nature. It also includes individuals who are blind or patients in a nursing home because of mental or physical incapacity. The benefit is also available to veterans who are 65 or older, who do not meet the disability requirements under certain circumstances.
