Each veterans home provides essential equipment and furnishings, complete on-site medical and pharmacy services, physical and occupational therapy, and 24-hour nursing care. The homes also offer year-round recreational activities such as crafts, games, musical entertainment, shopping, trips to local sporting events, and other stimulating endeavors.
The public is welcome to experience the outstanding level of care provided to the residents and inquire about the admissions process at any of the following open houses:
These four homes plus the Delaware Valley Veterans' Home in Philadelphia and the Southwestern Veterans' Center in Pittsburgh are available throughout the year for individual tours.
