About Maine Veterans’ Homes

Caring for Those Who Served Us

At Maine Veterans’ Home, we believe it is a privilege and our responsibility to provide care and support for those who honorably served our country, as well as for their families. Created by the Maine Legislature in 1977 to provide long term care services to Maine’s veterans and eligible family members, we continue today to operate as an independent, nonprofit organization.

We opened our first home in Augusta in 1983. Since then, we have established locations in Caribou, Scarborough, South Paris, Bangor and Machias.

We Are Independent of the VA

That means we’re a separate nonprofit organization from the Department of Veterans Affairs. We receive no state funding, but we do work closely with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to access federal funding for veterans’ benefits and care. As a nonprofit, MVH relies on the generous donations of individuals and organizations to help enhance the quality of life for residents by providing funds for activities, equipment and facility projects.

What We Offer Veterans

Whether it’s long term care or rehabilitative services, our team of health care professionals works together to develop a customized care plan based on the needs of each veteran. Our success can be directly attributed to our staff’s unwavering commitment to our Mission and Core Values in caring for Maine’s veterans.

As a long term care facility serving veterans,

  • We participate in Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial and private insurance.
  • Qualifying veterans may also receive a VA daily stipend to offset their cost of care.
  • Disabled veterans may qualify for VA full cost of care.
  • Per VA regulations, 75 percent of our beds are reserved for veterans at any time.
  • Eligible spouses and Gold-Star parents are accepted on a space-available basis.
