Luverne

Nestled in a friendly small town 30 miles from Sioux Falls, SD, the Minnesota Veterans Home - Luverne offers three distinct living spaces to meet each Resident’s unique needs, including a 17-bed special care unit for those with advanced dementia. Our staff follows the Eden Philosophy social model of care to help provide spontaneity and make life worth living for Residents in their care. Each one features a living room, dining room, kitchenette, laundry room and several sitting/conversation areas. A computer and gaming room are available for Resident use.

The Eden philosophy guides us in creating a home-like atmosphere for our Residents and their families. We are committed to creating a community where life is truly worth living – with activities and interactions that Residents find meaningful and enjoyable. Our Residents have access to the outdoors, to plants and animals, and to numerous opportunities for interaction with the community. Creating this Eden-centered environment is a never-ending process. We continue to grow as a place where Residents want to live, families want to visit and our staff enjoys working.

Our Residents are a vital part of the Luverne community. Dedicated volunteers provide special activities. School kids visit regularly in our popular "Adopt a Grandparent" Program. There are abundant opportunities for shopping trips, meals out, participating in the fair and much more. Our internal environment is enhanced through consistent staffing and a range of small group activities.

Family Council

Minnesota Veterans Home Family Council - Luverne

The Minnesota Veterans Home Family Council for the Luverne facility provides a formal vehicle for communication and information sharing between administration, family members, staff, Residents, and family friends. It provides a forum for these families and friends to discuss common concerns, share ideas, provide support, and impact both facility program and direction in a mutually supportive and beneficial manner for all members. This is accomplished via monthly meetings with Family Council members, followed by monthly meetings that involve Family Council Officers and the Minnesota Veterans Home Administration.

About the Family Council

The Family Council shares ideas, information, and concerns by:

  • Developing projects aimed at improving the quality of life, well being, and happiness of their loved one, as well as all Residents of the Veterans Home.
  • Providing input on Veterans Home decisions
  • Safeguarding consumer and Resident rights
  • Opening channels of communication between Residents, families, Veterans Home staff and the administration, as well as the community
  • Establishing an orientation package about the Family Council for new Residents
  • Providing information and support to families of past, current, and prospective Residents
  • Promoting goodwill and fellowship among members

For information on meetings dates and times call the Home directly at (507) 283-1100 or 1-877- LUV VETS (588-8387).

Activities

Luverne Activity Calendar

Quality of care is foremost at the Luverne Veterans Home, and our Residents are our primary focus. Through this calendar of diverse activities, we strive to help our Residents maintain the greatest possible independence in their lives.

Our Residents are treated to a wide variety of recreation activities and events, both within the facility and out in the community. By providing this detailed schedule, we encourage family and friends to participate as much as possible in the activities at Luberne Veterans Home.
