Community Nursing Homes

A Community Nursing Home is a place where Veterans can live full time and receive skilled nursing care any time of day or night.

VA contracts with community nursing homes to care for Veterans. The Community Nursing Home program is offered in many communities so Veterans can receive care near their homes and families.

Watch the video to tour a Community Nursing Home and hear what one Veteran has to say: “If I fall here, I’ll have someone immediately at my side. At home, I have to wait – not very long, but I have to wait.”
