The Vineland Veterans Home is the state’s oldest continually operating veteran’s home, having opened its doors in 1899. The Vineland Home has been providing services to New Jersey Veterans from every war or armed conflict since the Civil War.
Our new replacement facility was constructed on the same site of the previous buildings and opened its doors in 2005. This new state-of-the-art nursing home can accommodate 300 residents. The Home is Medicare certified and is licensed by the State of New Jersey to provide skilled nursing home services. Additionally, the Home is also certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to provide long-term care services.
The Home is open to veterans who have been discharged, other than dishonorably, from US Military Services after serving during war or peacetime for at least 90 days, spouses of veterans, and Gold Star Parents. A spouse/widow/widower must be at least 50 years of age and must have been married to the veteran for a period of not less than 10 years.

Comprehensive services and a deep concern for the residents go hand-in-hand at our state-operated veterans nursing home. Around-the-clock medical and nursing care is provided by a staff of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants. Rehabilitative services, such as occupational and physical therapies, speech therapy, and restorative nursing services are provided under the supervision of contracted licensed therapists.
For the convenience and comfort of the residents, the home features beautifully decorated dining rooms, fully equipped beauty and barber shops, lounges for socializing and watching television, landscaped outdoor areas, and a chapel for religious services for all faiths.

Residents are encouraged to be active in an environment which stimulates involvement, self-esteem, productivity and freedom for independent choices. This is accomplished by providing diverse recreational activities of interest to each resident. Activities provided are physical, social, intellectual, sensory, spiritual, creative, and community oriented. Recreational activities are available to the veteran home residents on an individual basis, small or large group, or independent participation. Activities are available 7 days of the week, including evenings.
Our volunteers and donations are incorporated into our Activity Programs to provide a full array of activities for each resident according to his or her capacity and preference thereby ensuring an enhanced quality of life.
Your staff is stellar. In the past eight years I have visited many nursing facilities, rehab units and hospitals in Southern New Jersey. I have found the Veterans Home to be outstanding in every area unlike any facility I have visited. I have witnessed the highest level of professionalism….with the highest standards of skills and ability to blend both kindness and compassion all while serving our Vets with the upmost respect and dignity..
When the time came that I could no longer care for my husband, I placed him in another nursing home. This was a typical nursing home with bad issues. We couldn’t wait for an opening in the Veterans Home. When we finally were able to get him into your facility it was such a drastic change (for the better), that we couldn’t believe it…. From day one, my husband has told me over and over again, what a wonderful place this is, I love it here.
As concerned Children, we felt compelled to write this to you to say what a wonderful job the Veterans Home does to provide a safe and happy environment for all of the residents….We wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all of the efforts put forth by the entire staff of the Veterans Home. Everyone we encounter has been very nice and always helpful.
