If a Veteran’s widowed spouse is residing in her daughter’s home and daughter is providing caregiving services, can the payments under a personal caregiver agreement count as UME? 

Yes, but there must be an actual money exchange from claimant to daughter and the daughter must claim the income, in her personal tax return. Additionally, to the personal needs contract, many VA adjudicators request an attendant sitter affidavit.
