Established in 1994 the Lewiston Veteran’s Home was built on the philosophy of supporting the hardworking, rural values of our clients. Our professional staff takes pride in being there to assist residents with a full range of financial, social, spiritual and skilled nursing care needs.
Nestled in a park-like setting with a panoramic view of nearby rolling hills, the Idaho State Veteran’s Home in Lewiston provides a comfortable and welcoming setting for our veterans and their spouses. We are fortunate to be located right at the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake Rivers — one of the premier fishing spots in the nation — which provides residents and visitors alike with a beautiful and peaceful environment.
The 66-bed home features daily activities, including physical therapy; a Canteen area to visit with family and a dining hall that serves three wholesome meals a day. Residents enjoy recreational and social activities, outings and other programs that keep them active, independent and involved. Our caring team of physical, occupational and speech therapists provide custom programs designed to enhance the quality of life and individual skills and abilities of residents. Facilities include a state-of-the-art therapy room, activity center, dining room, gardens, chapel and more. Additionally, we offer a room during the transition to end of life care for residents and their family. This room provides space, comfort and privacy.
Veterans may be admitted without regard to their financial status. Nursing care residents admitted on or after July 1, 2000, must either apply for and become eligible for Medicaid benefits, or must pay the maximum monthly charge as it may be established from time to time.
