This concept provides a full range of personal care and clinical services that gives priority to the Veteran's quality of life, providing an atmosphere of security, privacy, dignity and companionship in a real home setting. A dedication ceremony was held in 2011 for two homes that will provide a new and innovative approach for Veterans needing a skilled care setting, changing the design of the traditional institutional nursing home setting into a home environment. An additional $9M construction project has been awarded to add two more homes. VAIHCS plan is for 6 homes accommodating 60 Veterans and a community center.
