Letter: Nursing Care For Veterans

The America we know would not be the same were it not for the men we honor on Memorial Day.  All of us at the Long Island State Veterans Home would like to take this opportunity to remember those brave men whose ultimate sacrifice has helped to protect the freedoms we enjoy today.

 

We also want to alert veterans and their families living on Long Island who may require skilled nursing care or medical model adult day healthcare, that we stand ready to meet your needs.  The Long Island State Veterans Home is a 350-bed skilled nursing facility located on the beautiful campus of Stony Brook University.  The home specializes in short-term rehab, respiratory care, Alzheimer’s and dementia related disorder care and end of life care. Honorably discharged veterans are eligible for a multitude of entitlements that will help pay for the cost of long-term care.  

 

We recognize that a family’s decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be very difficult.  All of us at the Long Island State Veterans Home are deeply committed to our veterans and are ready to provide an experience that includes great quality of care and great quality of life for those who have served.  We are dedicated to our mission and would encourage those seeking care to give us a call.
