The Douglas T. Jacobson State Veterans Home is a 120 bed state-of-the-art
long-term care facility which provides both skilled and dementia nursing care to its
veteran residents.
The home resembles a small village with the resident’s wings opening off a
central hub-like section. This area serves as the “Main Street” of the home,
accommodating a library with Internet accessible computers and an extensive
collection of books, a formal dining room, barber shop, and snack machines.
An assortment of state-of-the-art televisions can be found in Day Rooms and
recreation areas throughout the facility. An outside court yard with gardens, and
extensive screened lanai areas, afford the residents a tranquil environment to
spend time with visiting family and friends, or fellow residents. With the support of
the Doug Jacobson Residents Fund and local veteran organizations, the staff and
residents alike enjoy tremendous support and a remarkable friendship from the
neighboring communities. Your donations and support of the Doug Jacobson
Residents Fund will allow us to continue to be "mission ready" in assisting the
residents of the Douglas T. Jacobson Veterans Home.
