Maine Veterans’ Homes – Bangor

Based on guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, we have decided to restrict visitors from entering our buildings. This is a precautionary action to help protect our residents who are at the highest risk for contracting the coronavirus.

CMS is allowing an exception for family of residents on hospice and end of life care, as long as they pass health screening at entry and wear provided personal protective equipment during the visit. Please call in advance of coming to the Home if you think you may qualify for this exception or have any questions.

    The Bangor Rehabilitation & Therapy Unit

    The Bangor home features a state-of-the art rehabilitation, therapy and short term skilled nursing care unit. The area includes a therapy pool, specialized equipment, enhanced rooms and at-home recovery programs.

    An on-site Therapy Apartment Suite allows patients to incorporate real-life training into their rehab program before going home. For example, a therapist may use the Therapy Apartment Suite to help a patient with a walker practice maneuvering safely around the kitchen or learn how to do stairs.

    Oftentimes, just going through the moves before going home instills a sense of confidence in the patient. Through the use of the Therapy Apartment Suite, we help patients prepare for going home and help lower the chances of readmissions.

    Our Bangor medical and therapy team places a strong focus on returning patients to their home and community, whenever possible.

    Ways to Support Maine Veterans’ Homes

    As an independent nonprofit organization, Maine Veterans’ Homes relies on the generosity of individuals and organizations to help us care for those who served. Daily, we provide care and comfort to approximately 600 veterans and spouses in our six facilities across Maine.

    At each of our nursing homes, we have a very active base of volunteers and contributors. Individuals from veterans’ service organizations and the community at large make regular visits, call out bingo, read to residents, and provide those little things that make a big difference.

    We believe it is a privilege and our responsibility to provide care and support for those who honorably served our country.

    We thank you for supporting the honored veterans of Maine!
