Our future Tennessee State Veterans’ Home in Arlington will be situated on 28.5 acres in rural Shelby County. With a neighborhood design, each house will consist of 18 private rooms with intimate courtyards and dining spaces. The modern home will also consist of a community center with a bistro, a large activity space, and a state-of-the-art therapy gym. With just a short drive to the top medical centers in Memphis, this 126-bed facility will be a premier location for veteran care in West Tennessee. This home is projected to open in 2024.

Construction has begun on our new State Veterans’ Home in Arlington, Tennessee. The home is anticipated to open in 2024. When we have an official opening date, it will be announced on our website, in the local paper, and on our social media pages.
We are not currently accepting admissions for the Arlington Veterans Home and there is no active waiting list. A waiting list for the Arlington Home will not begin until the home is almost open (sometime in 2024). An announcement will be made on our website, in the local paper, and on our social media pages when we begin accepting people on a waiting list.
We are not currently accepting employee applications for our Arlington Veterans Home. Once the facility is nearing completion, we will begin posting open positions at tsvh.org/careers.
Our waiting list is designed for people interested in admission to our Veterans Homes. Each individual Tennessee State Veterans’ Home facility has its own waiting list. Individuals will be contacted for admission in the chronological order in which the referral or request for admission was received by the facility. While there is no priority waitlist, individuals at a hospital or in need of immediate skilled care may be given priority over someone on the waitlist. Please note that being added to our waitlist does not guarantee admission. Currently, there is no waiting list for the Arlington Veterans Home.
Yes, individuals who are eligible for admission may have the option of admitting to a different Tennessee State Veterans’ Home location and requesting to transfer once the new facility is open. Please contact the facility of your choice and request to speak to the Case Manager for more information.
All of our State Veterans’ Homes are long-term care and skilled nursing rehabilitation facilities. We do not offer assisted living or independent living options.
TSVH is not part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). We are considered a political subdivision of the State of Tennessee.
Yes, even if you never served in a war (or during wartime), you may still be eligible for admission to Tennessee State Veterans’ Homes. A list of admissions requirements can be found here.
Spouses and Gold-Star parents of qualified veterans may also be eligible for admission to TSVH. Spouses and Gold-Star parents must be in need of a skilled level of care to be considered for admission. No more than 25% of a home’s residents may be non-veterans.
Cost varies based on a number of factors. If you are a veteran with a service-connected disability of 70% or greater, your cost of care may be covered 100%. Veterans who are less than 70% service-connected may still be eligible to receive a significant discount off their daily room rate with the VA per diem. We also accept Medicare, Medicaid, Long-Term Care Insurance, and Medicare Managed Plans. Our admissions team will work with you to help determine what you qualify for and how we can keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as possible.
We encourage anyone interested in volunteering to contact the home after it has opened and request to speak with the Activities Director. Our Activities Department will be the team coordinating all volunteer efforts.
