Holyoke Soldiers Home, 110 Cherry Street. Unlike long termnursingPhoto of Holyoke Soldiers Homehome care paid for by the VA or MassHealth/Medicaid, Soldiers Homes funded by the state of Massachusetts do not look at assets of a veteran or spouse.
Income is the only financial criteria that is considered when a veteran applies to the Soldiers' Home.
If the veteran is single, they look at gross monthly income, deduct $300 from monthly income and then go back to the sliding scale of $0 to $930/month, including medications. If the veteran is married, they look at gross monthly income, deduct $1500 from monthly income and then go back to the sliding scale of $0 - $930 / month ($0 to $30 per day). Information on Costs and Charges.
There is also independent living at the Holyoke Soldiers' Home, which includes a nurse to help with medications. The veteran's family members are responsible to take the veteran to medical appointments outside the building. If the veteran needs hospital care, there would be a bed hold for 10 days at no charge.
