Admission to the Nevada State Veterans Home is
dependent on a variety of factors. First and foremost,
applicants must be able to benefit from admission. Likewise,
the Home must be able to meet the individual needs of
applicants - without compromising the applicant’s care or
the care of residents already living in the Home. Applicants
must have a military discharge other than dishonorable, be a
spouse of a veteran who meets this requirement, or be a
Gold Star parent. They must be a current resident of Nevada
or provide verification of Nevada residency at the time of
enlistment in the military. Additionally, applicants must present
a current, signed admission order from a licensed physician
verifying the need for 24-hour skilled nursing care. Contrary
to popular belief, there currently is no waiting list for admission
to the Home. Once an applicant has completed the admission
application and provided the corresponding documentation,
an admission can be arranged within two business days.
Because VA assists with the cost of care, veteran’s rates
are some of the least expensive you will find in a skilled
nursing care facility. However, NSVH residents do
contribute toward their cost of care and ancillary charges,
such as physician visits, medications, and therapies. Co-
payments and ancillary charges will vary over time and
between residents, depending on each resident’s situation.
Some residents may be eligible for additional VA benefits,
Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, or private insurance.
Our Home is frequently recognized for its modern
amenities, exceptional programs, and full continuum of care
– all for a very reasonable price. In recent months the Home
was recognized as one of the best nursing homes in the United
States and named to the “Nursing Home Hall of Fame” by
U.S. News and World Report - quite an accomplishment
since only 42 of more than 15,000 homes made this list.
This achievement demonstrates the commitment of the
Home’s team members, volunteers, and the Boulder City
community. Efforts are underway to construct a second
Home in Northern Nevada and we are in the early planning
stages for an adult day health care center to serve veterans
in Southern Nevada. None of this would be possible without
the support of the Boulder City community. Together, we
are “Caring for America’s heroes!”
