Veterans living in State Veterans Homes may be eligible for federal benefits which can help supplement their cost of care. The cost of staying at a Veterans Home is often significantly below what is charged at for-profit facilities. Assistance is available during the application process to find the best options for financing your living arrangements and cost of care.

  • Federal veterans entitlements help make this affordable for many veterans.
  • Most veterans will find economic as well as quality reasons to live at a Veterans Home.

Veterans living at the Veterans Homes also benefit from many events and activities supported or supplied by veteran organizations, corporate sponsors, and individual volunteers.

The following information outlines the ways members of the Wisconsin Veterans Homes may pay for the cost of their care.
