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 to our Home.

Residents must agree to pay a daily per diem and additional ancillary charges, such as physician visits and medications. Charges may vary over time and between residents, depending on each resident’s situation.
