Once submitted, OVHL’s Admissions Coordinator will contact the applicant or the responsible party upon reviewing the application. Upon approval, the applicant will be scheduled for admission based on occupancy availability.
The Oregon Veterans’ Homes (both in The Dalles and in Lebanon) are a benefit meant to provide exclusive, first-class, long-term care at an affordable price exclusively as a benefit for Oregon veterans, their spouse, and Gold Star Parents (parents who lost a child to war-time combat).
Part of the Homes’ affordability comes from an established benefit which allows veteran residents to combine private, federal, and/or Medicare or Medicaid to cover daily costs. Both Homes experience a higher than state average occupancy rate primarily because of the commitment to providing the highest quality of care at lower costs to veteran residents.
Daily room rates include room, board, and skilled nursing care, as well as amenities and activities. Specialized memory related care (for residents with Alzheimer’s or memory care needs) is an additional cost.
Effective October 1, 2018, rates are:
- Veteran General Care from $257 to $267 ppd
- Veteran Memory Care from $267 to $277 ppd
- Spouse General Care from $284 to $294 ppd
- Spouse Memory Care from $294 to $304 ppd
