Veterans Nursing Home Dedicated on Veteran's Day

On Veterans Day, a day of reflection, gratitude and respect for the men and women who bravely serve our country, one state will open their very first nursing home specifically for Veterans.

The state worked for eight years to open a nursing facility specifically designed so that veterans can receive quality, long-lasting care in their home state.  For too long, many of the state's veterans have had to seek long-term care hundreds of miles from their homes.

The support of the state's lawmakers helped bring to life the 120-bed facility, which will include a separate Alzheimer’s care unit. Through this network, veterans will have greater access to quality health care than ever before. With this nursing home, many  veterans and their families can rest easier knowing that should extended care be needed, they won’t be far from home.

There has been great progress in improving veterans’ access to health care – and  with the dedication of the new nursing home, the state can provide care to veterans’ for their entire lives. They deserve it, they earned it, and all are grateful for their service. For more, read the story.
