It’s all about Community—living among fellow war-time veterans in a community that celebrates your service and sacrifice.
You or your loved one will receive the highest quality care provided by on-site primary care doctors honored to serve Ohio’s veterans. Specialists include an optometrist, dentist and podiatrist. Physical, occupational and speech therapy is provided in-house.
Understanding the value of engaging the mind, we established a new learning center in Sandusky that includes a library and computer lab. Veterans also can participate in garden club, try their hand at cooking or build their own creations in many workshops.
At our home in Sandusky, we offer the Music & Memory program and opportunities to participate in the Veterans Choir. Also, residents simply can join in singing the national anthem, I’m Proud to be an American or other patriotic songs during our many celebrations of military history. The Ohio Veterans Homes are rich in history, dating back to 1888 when the Ohio Veterans Home in Sandusky opened its doors to serve veterans of the Civil War.
Veterans remain young at heart by engaging the generations whether simply watching younger visitors on the playground or learning about computer technology from high school students in the Cyber Seniors program.
The beautiful 94-acre Sandusky Campus is always bustling with community events, including parades, weekly farmers markets, 5k run/walks, baseball games, fishing and use of the picnic pavilion.
The Georgetown Campus opened in 2003, and is located in the scenic countryside of Brown County. A small park on the grounds provides a venue for events held by local veterans service organizations, a wooded walking trail and a playground for visitors.
