“If a child in her discretion returns money to a parent on a monthly basis to help pay the parent’s nursing home bills, how is this handled while an application for VA – Aid and Attendance benefits is pending?”

Answer:  It may be seen as income.  Thus, the better preference is for the child to pay the nursing home directly instead of the parent.
