Veterans Homes

Quality nursing and health care services are provided for Utah veterans with U.S. military service during peacetime or wartime. While wartime service is not a requirement for admission to the nursing home, wartime veterans with one day or more of wartime service, as recognized by state and federal laws, have top priority. A veteran’s spouse or surviving spouse may also qualify for admittance to the Utah State Veterans Nursing Home, providing the marriage to the veteran occurred at least one year before the application. If you have any questions please contact the Utah Department of Veteran’s Affairs at either (801) 326-2372 or 1-800-894-9497.

In state-owned veterans homes, the VA pays for nearly one half the cost of care for the resident.  In certain instances of service connected disabilities, 100% of the cost of care is paid.  Care is available to all veterans and eligible dependents.  If you would like to contribute to these facilities or to sponsor a patient room, please contact the Utah Department of Veterans & Military Affairs at 801-326-2372.

There are four state-operated Veterans Homes located in the state of Utah. They are located in the communities of Salt Lake City, Ogden, Payson, and Ivins.
