  • Was retired for a service-connected disability or injury, or
  • Has served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces for 24 months of continuous service or more and enlisted after September 7, 1980 or
  • Has served as a Reservist or National Guard member, and the service included being called to Federal Active Duty (excluding service for Active Duty Training only) and completed the term or completed 20 years of satisfactory service and is otherwise eligible to receive reserve or active duty retirement benefits; or
  • Has been discharged for reasons of hardship or released from active duty due to a reduction in the U.S. Armed Forces before the completion of the required period of service; and
  • Entered the service as a resident of Illinois or has been a resident of Illinois for one year immediately preceding the date of application for admission; and
  • Is disabled by disease, wounds, or otherwise, and because of disability is incapable of earning a living.

Peacetime veterans with one year of honorable military service may also be eligible for admission; other qualifying conditions, as required, must be met.

Admission to an Illinois Veterans’ Home is based upon:

  • The ability of the Home to provide adequate and appropriate care and services required by the person’s medical diagnoses and assessed needs, and:
  • An available bed in the category required by the veteran’s medical conditions and assessed needs.

Cost of Care

What is the cost to stay at the Homes? Residents who have a monthly income will pay a monthly maintenance charge towards the total cost of their care. (NOTE: The inability to contribute to the cost of care does not prevent admission into the Home.) The monthly cost is based only on the monthly income of the Veteran and spouse and does not include other assets. The maximum amount is subject to change on an annual basis, depending on Social Security cost of living adjustments. For the current cost of care, please contact the Adjutant’s office at any of the Veterans Homes and they will be happy to assist you.  Those residents who qualify for the Aid & Attendance allowance from the US DVA will pay an additional Aid & Attendance charge, in addition to the monthly maintenance charge. The Aid & Attendance charge is equal to the amount of the allowance provided by the US DVA.

Veterans who have received a 70%-100% service connected disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs do not pay a monthly maintenance charge.

Qualifying Standards

Each Home is surveyed, inspected, and certified annually by its US Department of Veterans Affairs medical center of jurisdiction in areas of resident rights, quality of care, and safety.

Additionally, our Homes are inspected and licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health and must comply with its established rules and regulations.

National, state and local veteran organizations frequently visit the Homes, and Resident Advisory Groups in each Home work to represent resident members’ views and to ensure that quality of life standards remain high.

Admission Priorities

In addition to a veteran’s military service, admission to an Illinois Veterans’ Home is based upon:

  1. The ability of the Home to provide the care and services required by the veteran's medical diagnoses and assessed needs.
  2. An available bed in the category of care required by the veteran's medical conditions and assessed needs.

Veterans whose applications are accepted, but who cannot be immediately admitted to the facility, are placed on the facility waiting list and are prioritized on a "first come-first served" basis. Absolutely no exceptions are permitted to this policy.
