State Veterans’ Nursing Homes

Any person interested in residency can be referred through a VA Medical Center. Candidates must be veterans with qualifying war or peacetime service, be a resident of Florida for one year immediately prior to applying for admission and must require long-term care in a skilled nursing facility. For admission information you may contact the nearest County Veterans Service Office or FDVA Service Office. Veterans with service-connected disabilities or veterans unable to afford nursing home care will be considered first for residency.

Purpose

To provide skilled or intermediate type nursing care and related medical care in VA or private nursing homes for convalescents or persons who are not acutely ill and not in need of hospital care.
