Maine Veterans’ Home in Caribou was named one of the Best Places to Work in Maine in 2017.
Maine Veterans’ Homes has earned the reputation as a leader among the nation’s system of state veterans’ homes as well as private long-term care and rehabilitative care providers.
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!
