I am trying to help the surviving spouse of a veteran who passed away due to pancreatic cancer. He was getting all care through the Audie Murphy VA in San Antonio. When he was diagnosed in 2017 he was told he had 3 months to live, he was bedridden, couldn’t work, he lived 17 months and his spouse was his care giver 24/7 during those 17 months as he progressively got worse. No one at the VA ever mentioned anything about this Care Giver program which would have helped them tremendously due to him losing all of his income and her having to stay home and take care of him. Can she file the paperwork with documentation from his doctors showing he was completely bedridden and she was his care giver and receive the money she would have been entitled to? I guess backpay. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
