Meds, family history, gets you to walk, go upstairs, in and out of shower, bed.
  I think I got a decision back in about 2 wks. At the time it was done by a CM, in our district office. I got the nursing assessment by ATIP, after. If you want to know more pm me. Sorry I do not know the answer to yr ?, but the assessment is quite in-depth. VVV...
thanks, perhaps l will but l also noticed according to the VAC site, modified mid Feb. in big bold black letters it now states
“ In determining the Grade of AA, activities such as housekeeping, preparing meals, shopping/errands, laundry, grounds keeping, repair and maintenance, using transportation or driving, using the telephone, managing money and social or recreational activities, are not taken into consideration.“
A lot of these activities are influenced by poor ability in the ADLs, doesn’t really make sense to me.?
anyone been approved for this lately..?

It says the veteran must be at 100% disability and need assistance in any one of the 6 Activities of Daily Living. But under Chapter 19 Impairment of ADLs, VAC lists the 6, hygiene,dressing,eating,mobility,locomotion,bowel...but they also list Chronic Pain. If a Veteran suffers from Chronic pain, and is at 100% disability, shouldn’t he be allowed to apply for AA..?
