The Montana Veterans' Home is a Medicare/Medicaid and Veterans' Administration certified facility with 105 intermediate/skilled-care beds and 12 domiciliary beds. The nursing facility includes a 15-bed Alzheimer’s unit. MVH has been providing services to Veterans since 1896.
Most rooms are double occupancy including bath and shower facilities. Construction of the current facility began in 1970 with additions in 1974, 1984, 2002 and a remodel in 2009.
The Montana Veterans' Home is located next to the Flathead River just minutes away from Glacier National Park. A large pavilion, walking paths and protected courtyards provide ample opportunities for outdoor access.
The facility offers individual and group activities, spiritual services, support group services and social services. The skilled and rehabilitative services include: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and dietitian services. Physician services are provided on site by North Valley Hospital of Whitefish.
Admission to MVH nursing program is for honorably discharged veterans who have served in the armed forces of the United States and who qualify for skilled/intermediate nursing care or domiciliary self-care living. Spouses of veterans will be admitted on a space-available basis. A veteran and spouse may be admitted together if they both qualify for nursing-home care or domiciliary living. MVH has an open admission policy regardless of race, color, creed, age, national origin, medical diagnosis or handicap. Administrative Rules of Montana, Chapter 37.45
Residents pay on the basis of their ability. The Veterans' Administration contributes toward the cost of care for each veteran; spouses do not qualify for this benefit. Cost per day is less than what is charged in most private or non profit nursing homes. Montana Veterans Affairs
