Nursing Home Care
VA benefits provide for a range of long-term services which include:
- Adult Day Care
- Domiciliary Care
- Geriatric Evaluation
- Nursing Home Care
- Respite Care
Nursing home benefits may be provided for a service-connected condition or if the veteran has a service-connected disability rating of 70% or more. These veterans are eligible for admission to extended care services and indefinite care in a VA nursing home. Veterans may be discharged from nursing home care when it is no longer needed, i.e., if the needs can be met at home or in a private nursing home closer to the family.
