Resident-Centered Care


A veteran's chosen home and community, where caring is assured, friendships surround, and good lives go on.


The mission of the New Hampshire Veterans Home is to provide the best quality of life for NH Veterans with dignity, honor and respect.

Philosophy of Care

We believe that each Resident is a unique individual, worthy of dignity and respect regardless of age, race, color, religion, disease, or illness.

We believe that each Resident should have a place to call his/her own, in a warm homelike environment that promotes safety, enjoyment, and privacy.

We believe that each person's individuality must be respected. Therefore, decisions about a Resident's daily life will be made with him or her or with the individual(s) acting under an activated Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care or guardianship.

We believe that independence is a desirable human quality that fosters a sense of well-being. Each Resident will be encouraged and assisted in attaining the highest level of independence and self-care that is possible for him or her to achieve.

We believe that the function of a long-term care facility is to maintain and/or improve the physical and mental health of our Residents.

We believe in a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to Resident care and that family, friends and volunteers are integral members of our Care Planning Team.

We believe in the personal growth and satisfaction of staff members through their work and consider that the provision of a comprehensive orientation program, continuing education, and recognition for individual and group efforts helps to promote satisfaction.

We believe that each member of our staff contributes essential knowledge, skills, experience, and personal attributes to the quality of care provided.

We believe that death is the final stage of growth, and a palliative approach to care is essential when life can no longer be sustained.
