The 1991 Call to Action by Lucy Gwin
In 1994, the Veterans Administration's nursing homes and domiciliaries housed an average of 19,553 veterans on any given day. A larger number of veterans live in community nursing homes, most of them at Medicaid expense. Very few veterans with disabilities are given the choice of home- and community-based services.
National average annual cost of housing one disabled American veteran in a V.A. nursing home: $75,641
