Eligibility Criteria

The Georgia War Veterans Nursing Home is one of two skilled nursing care homes for eligible war veterans located in Georgia. The primary mission of the home is to provide high quality skilled nursing care to veterans while seeking to improve their quality of life and overall health. Veterans seeking admission to the home must meet these eligibility criteria:

The veteran must be a current Georgia resident and meet one of the following conditions:

  • Resided in Georgia two years immediately preceding the date of application.
  • Resided in Georgia five or more of the past 15 years.


The veteran must have served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces during one of the following wartime periods:

  • The veteran must have a discharge under other than dishonorable conditions.
  • The veteran must be approved as eligible for skilled nursing care by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
  • The veteran must be free of contagious infectious disease and behavioral and psychiatric problems.
  • The veteran must not need to be sustained by line-operated mechanical means. 

To apply for admission, contact the GWVNH Admissions Office or any GDVS Veterans Field Service Office.  

A nominal daily fee is charged. Eligible veterans may apply for the federal Aid & Attendance benefit to help offset this fee. For veterans with a service-connected disability rating of 70 percent or higher or whose admission is due to a service-connected condition, the daily fee is paid in full by VA.
