Statistics

Serves 240 residents

The Washington Veterans Home was built in 1910 in Port Orchard and is located on a 31- acre bluff overlooking the Sinclair Inlet of Puget Sound.

Today the Veterans Home is a state-of-the-art, non-institutional facility providing a "Resident Centered Care" concept that focuses resources around the individual resident. All primary services for a resident are available within a forty-bed "neighborhood." The Home serves 240 residents needing skilled-nursing care.

Eligibility

All Washington State Veterans Homes are Medicare and Medicaid certified facilities. To be eligible for admission, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Served at any time, in any branch of the United States Armed Forces including the National Guard;

  • Received an honorable discharge;

  • Reside in Washington State;

  • Be the spouse of a resident or widow of an eligible veteran;

  • Or be a Gold Star Parent who lost a child while serving in the armed forces.

Veterans rated 70%-100% Service Connected Disabled, or whose service connected disability is the reason nursing care is needed, may have their nursing home care paid by the Federal VA.  We also accept Medicare, Medicaid, 3rd Party Insurance and Private Pay.
