Caribou was the second of our six multi-service homes. Opening in January of 1990, it is located in a beautiful country setting adjacent to Cary Medical Center in Aroostook County. Our Caribou facility is equipped with 70 beds and provides skilled nursing, rehabilitation and Alzheimer/Dementia care. Maine Veterans' Home - Caribou has a medical team that works for you, including a Medical Director and 24 hour RN coverage. The medical and therapy team's focus is on returning the patient to their home and community, whenever possible. Our Caribou facility develops an individualized plan of care that integrates nursing care with a rehabilitation program. Maine Veterans Homes in Caribou continuously monitors patient progress and measures outcomes.
