Long Term Care For Veterans

Providing compassionate care to those who served

From the day you move into one of our skilled nursing facilities, we are committed to providing the compassionate care and respect that you deserve. Our approach to individualized care for Veterans is what makes us stand out from other long term care providers.

At Maine Veterans’ Homes, we understand and appreciate the physical, mental and emotional strength required to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. We know the obstacles many Veterans may face. We were established to care exclusively for Veterans and their eligible family members. At least 75 percent of our residents at each of our six locations are Veterans.

Specialized, Skilled Nursing Care

Our staff members are highly trained to look after the health and physical well-being of our residents, along with providing for their emotional needs.

We are proud that many of our staff are Veterans themselves. We know that, more than most, Veterans have stories to tell and sometimes painful memories they’ll only share with somebody who’s been there. At Maine Veterans’ Homes, no one is ever too busy to listen.

Nursing Home Accommodations

Our modern amenities are meticulously maintained and regularly updated. In fact, we are currently building a new home in Augusta and renovating several other locations. Accommodations within our long term centers include:

  • Common dining and living areas to encourage socialization and new friendships.
  • Spacious multi-purpose rooms for card games, staff organized parties, musical programs, special meals and religious services.
  • Beautifully landscaped patios and gardens for visits with friends and family or time to enjoy the outdoors.
  • Quiet rooms provide a peaceful place for family to relax, along with accommodations for overnight stays.
  • Computer access is available for emailing loved ones and using the Internet.
  • On-site rehabilitation and therapy services to provide physical, occupational and speech language therapy as needed.
  • Secured units for one-on-one and group therapies specific to the needs of memory diseases.
  • Pharmaceutical services on-site with our own team of pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians to allow for 24/7 medication management and support.
  • Wheelchair accessible van for transporting residents to doctor’s appointments, community events and group activities.
  • No defined visitors’ hours; families have access to their loved ones 24/7.
