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.
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.
