The Minnesota Veterans Homes have been established to provide health care services to Minnesota veterans who have a medical need to live in a structured health care environment. Eligibility is limited to veterans and spouses of veterans over the age of 55. The Minnesota Veterans Homes offer 2 types of health care:
Board and Care - This care is intended to provide a structured living environment for veterans who can reside in such a setting, but who are able to dress, feed, and bathe themselves with limited assistance.
Nursing care Services - This service is provided to those residents who require care over and above that available in a board and care setting.
Fees for either of these types of care are based upon the ability to pay and cost of care, and are charged on a sliding scale. For more information, contact Clay County's Veterans Service by calling 218-299-5041 or the Minnesota Veterans Homes. Board and care is available at the Minneapolis and Hastings facilities. Skilled care is available at Minneapolis, Silver Bay, Luverne, and Fergus Falls.
