MVH Scarborough offers a variety of opportunities to the individuals who reside in our home. Circled by a picturesque one-third mile paved, wheelchair accessible walking path, MVH Scarborough is the first nursing center in Maine to receive the AHCA Gold Quality Award. Partnerships with local schools, children’s play groups, Veteran service organizations and community teams means that there are abundant opportunities for our residents to participate in diverse, intergenerational, community activities and events.
More than your typical Activities Department
Our diverse recreational programs include many activities not typically associated with a long term care setting, including: bocce ball, archery, motorcycle rides, tandem bike riding, fly and spin casting, fly tying and fishing trips! For individuals who enjoy the outdoors and gardening, we have a community sponsored garden at our home with raised planting beds on each unit. We have a music and memory program, brain exercise program in our brain gym and programs where our residents are encouraged to reminisce about their life and memories. In addition, residents stay physically fit with our daily calisthenics, chair boxing, chair Zumba and stationary biking.
Support the Scarborough Resident Activities Fund
Our residents enjoy being active and so our certified therapeutic recreation staff is always planning a variety of programs for them to enjoy. As a result, we have selected our Resident Activities Fund to be the recipient of all gifts made online. However, if you prefer that your donation benefit a specific area of the home, a special project or even a particular event, please let us know when you make your donation.
For the artistically inclined, we offer monthly art therapy groups lead by a certified art therapist. These classes offer our residents of every artistic level a chance to learn new skills and let their creativity shine.
Maine Veterans’ Homes is an independent, nonprofit organization that relies on support from the community to achieve our mission of “Caring for those who served.” Our Veterans like to be active and the way we help them do that is by offering rich extracurricular programs that include fishing, hunting, shows and concerts, meals out and more. Learn how you can enrich the lives of our Veterans by downloading our Community Fundraising Guide. Proceeds from your fundraisers support Maine Veterans and the Activities Funds at our six Homes.
There is a variety of ways to give to the MVH Scarborough. You can use your credit card to make a secure online gift, write a check and mail it with our giving form, transfer securities such as stocks and bonds, donate real estate or establish a future gift through your estate plans.
