  1. Hello. The VA Call Center is bad at giving straight answers. I'm 100%TDIU and need assistance from my husband everyday. I'm S/C for bilateral post phlebitis syndrome, iron deficiency anemia, osteoarthritis in the left foot and patella femoral arthritis bilateral in the knees. and fibroids. So how can I get family caregiver support form to file? The va website only has caregiver support for Iraq/Iran war veterans and when I called the caregiver support line, they outright told me that they only cater to war veterans or send people to care for war vets. I thought that there was a program for us ''regular'' vets whose spouse is caring for them. Is there such a thing or is it phased out? Thanks!
  2. I'm not sure I'm in the right place but I'm looking for all the help I can. My husband, after 9 years, has decided he needs more help than he's getting. I'm proud of him for making this decision. My questions are, what are good military only ptsd programs? He will be inpatient or do a retreat and doesn't want to leave our home state of NC. I've googled and can't find anything good. Also, does his benefit pay get reduced? He is 100% p&t for tbi/ptsd. Last question is since I'm his caregiver and he will be going away for a month or so, will my caregiver pay be reduced or d/c until he is back? I greatly appreciate all the help!
  3. Hello All, I am currently 80% disabled and wanted to get some info on caregiver service. i have heard that some vets are able to get thier spouse as a caregiver, but i am not sure where to get any info on this. Thanks for your help!
  4. Hello all im new to this forum/blog my husband is rated 100% and we've been denied. We think its because of the lack there of his medical records. We were going to Tuskegee va but ugh they were horrible no returned phone calls would set up an appt for him, didnt really seem to give a crap. we've recently started going to the cboc in Newnan and they've been awesome. Just had his first mental health appt since seeing civilian side, and doc wants to see my husband face to face 1x a week. She asked f he was receiving other benefits like the CareGiver Program and he told her we were just denied and she looked shocked. Was wondering what you guys thought.... was it denied due to lack of records? should we bring his civilian side paper work? His C&P exams? Please help im in the process of sending appeal letter. PS. we only received a letter no exam no nothing just the phone call were i was grilled with how i took care of him and then the letter.
  5. Hi All, Hope everything is going ok. The more I search (online) the more disillusioned I become. The issue I am searching for is "spouse as caregiver for a pre-911 100% SC disabled veteran program" Does anyone have any info that would point me in the right direction? Also, this is for a SCI veteran (myself having MS I recently found out MS is considered a SCI) Thank you. HG
