    For those who have had a relative whose fate depended upon getting someone processed into a suitable care arrangement, this kind of hits home. Clearly the man needs some help in getting to the Veteran's facility, but nobody seems to be able to put it together for him... :frown:

    Veterans don't just get to use veterans facilities. The VA isn't for ALL vets. Is he able to use VA facilities?

    I get the feeling that this poor guy was to the point where he couldn't advocate for himself very well, although I guess he did ask for...

    It would seem the social workers who handled his case couldn't get him to where he probably would have had better care. Of course he is right back at the place where he started... I get the feeling they won't be asking him to pay for his stay given the treatment the first time...
