How long does it take to get a veteran into a veteran's nursing home?
Can you tell me how long it takes usually to get a Veteran into a Veterans nursing home?
It is difficult to assign an average or usual length of time for this process. The time it takes to get a Veteran into a Veterans Nursing Home varies vastly from state to state.
Unlike private sector nursing homes where a family can possibly make admission arrangements for the same day, state veteran homes have an application process that could take a number of weeks or months. Since there is such a great demand especially for their Alzheimer's long term care units, it could take several years before a bed opens up.
