Veterans Homes and Benefits Services

Texas State Veterans Homes

The Texas Veteran Land Board Texas State Veterans Homes provide affordable, long-term nursing care for Texas veterans, their spouses and Gold Star parents. Because the VA subsidizes much of a veteran’s cost to stay at a VLB Texas State Veterans Home, daily out-of-pocket rates are well below average and include the cost of medications for veterans. Alzheimer’s units at each home provide highly specialized care.

The homes are owned by the VLB of the State of Texas and operated through contracts with professional healthcare providers. The cost of veteran care is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA).

Like all VLB programs, the Texas State Veterans Homes are self-supporting and cost Texas taxpayers virtually nothing.
