What is the waitlist?

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.

Can I admit to a different TSVH facility and transfer to Arlington once that home is open?

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.

Will the Arlington Home be an assisted living facility?

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.

Is the Tennessee State Veterans Homes part of the VA Healthcare system?

TSVH is not part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). We are considered a political subdivision of the State of Tennessee.

What are the requirements for admission to a State Veterans’ Home?

Please visit our Admissions page for a list of admission requirements.

Can my spouse move with me?

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.

What is the cost to stay at one of the State Veterans Homes?

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.
