Ohio Veterans Homes

The Ohio Veterans Homes are comprised of three facilities at two locations:

  • A home located near Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio(approximately 60 miles west of Cleveland) which offers standard and special care in its licensed nursing home.
  • The Sandusky home also offers Veterans Hall, a domiciliary(DOM) for those who are able to function in an independent living situation, and DOM+ for those requiring very limited assistance (supervised care) but who do not require the level of care provided to nursing home residents.
  • A home located in scenic, rural Georgetown, Ohio(approximately 45 miles east of Cincinnati), which offers skilled nursing services providing two levels of nursing care: standard care and secure care.
