Statistics

Serves 128 residents

The Washington Soldiers Home is located on 181 acres in the beautiful Puyallup Valley near Orting.

Established in 1891, this was the first of four homes built for Washington state veterans.

Eligibility

All Washington State Veterans Homes are Medicare and Medicaid certified facilities. To be eligible for admission, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Require Nursing Home Level care (The Soldiers Home does not provide Assisted Living Care.)

  • Served at any time, in any branch of the United States Armed Forces including the National Guard;

  • Received an honorable discharge;

  • Reside in Washington State;

  • Be the spouse of a resident or widow of an eligible veteran;

  • Or be a Gold Star Parent who lost a child while serving in the armed forces.

Veterans rated 70%-100% Service Connected Disabled, or whose service connected disability is the reason nursing care is needed, may have their nursing home care paid by the Federal VA.  We also accept Medicare, Medicaid, 3rd Party Insurance and Private Pay.
