Resident applications for the Bemidji Veterans Home will be accepted after 8 a.m. on Thursday.
According to a release from the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, residents must meet admission criteria, such as status as a veteran discharged under honorable conditions; or a spouse of a veteran discharged under honorable conditions; and need for skilled nursing care.
Application forms are available on the MDVA website at MinnesotaVeteran.org/futurehomes and can also be requested for county veteran service officers.
Applicants are encouraged to work with their VSO to complete the application package.
Applicants will be contacted to confirm receipt of their application materials and that they are on the waitlist.
Admissions will be staggered and gradual, as only a small number will be admitted until after the home is approved by a US VA inspection.
