Admissions

Veterans Homes

Priority for admission to the Veterans Homes will first be given to Veterans lacking sufficient means of support. Among these individuals, priority will be determined by the severity of medical care needed and their ability to access and afford care or housing within the community. While residency in Kansas is not a requirement for applicants, preference will be given to Kansas residents for admission to the Homes.
