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.

veteran nursing home waiting list

[Q&A]: How does the waiting list work at Maine Veterans’ Homes?

At Maine Veterans’ Homes, there is a wait list at each of our six locations. These wait lists have grown over the years as more veterans plan ahead and want to select where they receive future care, if ever needed. Jennifer McKenzie, Admissions Coordinator at our Augusta home, advises all eligible veterans and eligible family members to get on the wait list. “It’s absolutely a good idea,” she says. “Even if we call you and you are not ready to move, we continue to keep you on the waiting list for the future.”

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!
