Eligibility for admission to the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke is based on the applicant’s status as a Veteran (for the criteria visit the Secretary of State Commonwealth of Massachusetts web site: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/cis/cisvet/vetdefin.htm).

Our admission process is based on the medical need of the Veteran applicant and the available bed space within our facility, which is divided into the various levels of care we provide. The levels of care include an extended care unit for Veterans with elopement / wandering tendencies, units for Veterans at various stages of cognitive impairment and functional abilities and a unit for Veterans requiring hospice / palliative care. We review each Veteran applicant on a case by case basis.
