Michigan Veteran Homes - Apply for Admission

Veteran typing on a laptop.

Applying is as easy as 1-2-3

Before applying, we recommend veterans and their families do three things.

1. Contact Us

Start by reaching out to the Michigan Veteran Home of your choice to verify eligibility. Our team is available in person, by email or over the phone to assist. 

Click Here:  MVH Admission Inquiry Form

One of our admission coordinators will provide an application for admission.

2. Check the veteran's discharge document (DD-214)

Form DD-214 will verify active duty, release from duty, assignment, rank and other information that's critical to getting military benefits. (Not sure where it is? Not to worry. Veterans can request another copy through the Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency.)

3. Talk to Your Primary Care Provider

Veterans should inform their doctor of their intent to use their benefits at MVH.
