Comradery among fellow military men and women is what you will find as a veteran living at the Ohio Veterans Homes. We pride ourselves in providing a homelike atmosphere for men and women who have served their country but also have gone on to have wonderful lives post military service. We would be happy to include you as part of our OVH family.

Applications may be made directly to the Sandusky or the Georgetown home. In addition, the applicant may apply for the first available bed of either home. Once admitted, residents may apply and seek approval for transfer from one facility to another. If such transfer is approved, the resident will be responsible for all costs related to the transfer.

You've got questions, we've got answers. See our frequently asked questions.
