The benefits available to veterans unfortunately are often time related to the percentage of disability. Caregiver benefits are usually reserved for 100% disabled vets. A specific for form "Aid & Attendance" needs to be completed by a physician for starters.

In brief: So far where are you
in process? Although it's no longer mandatory, you have the option of seeing the MEB doc in person.
I highly recommend that if activities of daily life are affected. The doc's report will impact PEB decisions regarding ratings. Your PEBLO is a great resource for coordinating handoff to the VA from the MTF. An accepting VA nurse should be reviewing this w/you. Wounded Warrior Project is great too.
