      Blog - Governor Dayton Applauds State of the Art Veterans Care Center

      Posted on August 16, 2012 at 8:00 AM


      Minnesota has long been a leader in providing care for our veterans and assuring they receive the highest standard of care. The latest addition to the Minneapolis Veterans Home is no exception; it will be only the second such facility in the country to offer day services in a Veteran-specific model of care.

      Governor Dayton spoke yesterday at the dedication for the brand new facility – called “Building 19” – which is a new, state-of-the-art, skilled nursing facility and Adult Day Center. It features 100 private rooms arranged to provide a home-like atmosphere for veterans receiving care, and it incorporates the latest technology and modern amenities to enhance care.

      The Governor is proud that the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) is continuing to provide Minnesota’s veterans with the standard of care that they deserve. This day program allows Participants to maintain their highest level of independence and physical and mental well-being while remaining at home. The Adult Day concept also provides care and respite for caregivers, helping ease the strain of caring for a loved one or family member.
