Proudly Serving Maine's Veterans and Their Families since 1983

History

Maine Veterans' Homes is a public, not-for-profit organization created by the 108th Maine legislature in July, 1977. Our first home opened in March, 1983, in Augusta. Since then, MVH facilities have been established in Caribou, Scarborough, South Paris, Bangor, and Machias. Today, our six facilities located throughout the state are recognized for their modern amenities, exceptional programs and full continuum of care. Most importantly, our success can be directly attributed to our staff's unwavering commitment to our Mission and Core Values in taking care of Maine's veterans.

MVH operates as a separate corporation, but works closely with state and federal agencies, veterans' service organizations, the Department of Veterans Administration, and local communities to provide long-term care services to veterans and eligible family members. The construction of the Homes was funded with a combination of federal funds and state matching grants. MVH bills Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. The VA also provides a daily stipend for each qualifying resident. Per regulations, 75% of beds are reserved for veterans at any time.

Our residents are men and women who honorably served our country, and their eligible family members. For eligibility information, click here.
