6. Try contacting a local American Legion post.

They have people who assist in downloading and filling out forms. They may be willing to come to your house or a nearby "socially distant" park to do that. You wouldn't have to drive to a city.

If you have difficulty finding Amer. Legion help, message me. I know the N.J. Commander of the Am. Legion. He can assist you.

V.F.W. probably also has such assistance.

She may be entitled to a monthly stipend. If she is eligible for lodging in a V.A. home, there is usually a wait of 1 or 2 years. So it would be good to begin that process in case (when) she gets to the point that you can no longer mentally or physically care for her.
