My father has bipolar/dementia. After a recent manic attack leading to hospitalization, the doctor recommended that he need more socialization. My parents live in a small town; however, there is an assisted living facility that provides day care. My mother still works part time and needs to get out of the house on occasion. We were quite surprised when the day care provider asked if dad qualified for VA benefits and indicated that the VA might pay for his day care. We checked with the VA. It took about a month to certify the facility but they now pay the fees.
