Nebraska Veterans' Homes

The state veterans' homes are part of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and are located in Bellevue, Norfolk, Grand Island and Scottsbluff. Each home provides all levels of nursing care (minimal, intermediate, and advanced), physical therapy, recreational and religious services. Admissions to the four homes are determined on a case-by-case basis by the Veterans Homes Board, a separate, independent entity that works closely with the four homes. The Board consists of both the current and immediate past Department Commander of each of the recognized veterans’ organizations in Nebraska and the Director of the Nebraska Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
