“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 while an application for VA Aid and Attendance benefits is pending.
