How can I apply for admission for myself or my loved one?

We are not currently accepting admissions for the Cleveland Veterans Home. We recommend completing the Cleveland Waitlist Request Form to indicate interest in admission. Once you complete the form, someone from Tennessee State Veterans’ Homes (TSVH) will reach out to officially add you to our waiting list. Please note that being added to our waitlist does not guarantee admission.

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. Upon completion of the Cleveland Waitlist Request Form on our website, you will be contacted by a TSVH representative to be officially placed on the list. You can also contact us by phone to be placed on the waiting list at 615-225-1851. Please note that being added to our waitlist does not guarantee admission.

Can I admit to a different TSVH facility and transfer to Cleveland 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.

Will the Cleveland 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.

If I didn’t serve during wartime, am I eligible for admission?

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.

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.

When will I be able to sign up to volunteer at the new Cleveland Veterans home?

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.
