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.
Located on a hill overlooking the banks of the beautiful Penobscot River, MVH Bangor offers state-of-the-art therapy programs and a compassionate team of skilled senior care professionals. Our newly renovated skilled unit features modern spacious living accommodations, recreation rooms and restaurant style dining. Stop in for a visit and you’ll likely find residents enjoying a community event or relaxing in the sun on one of our new patios.
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.

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