Maine Veterans’ Homes in Scarborough offers a variety of unique attributes and opportunities to the individuals who reside in our home. Circled by a picturesque 1/3 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, duet 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 programming in our brain gym, and reminiscing programs. Our residents stay physically fit with our daily calisthenics, chair boxing, chair Zumba and stationary biking! We also offer complementary therapies such as sensory stimulation, Reiki, massage, aromatherapy and pet therapy.
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.
Supporting the Scarborough Resident Activities Fund:
