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 special care unit for those with advanced dementia. 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 are a vital part of the Luverne community. Dedicated volunteers provide special activities. School kids visit regularly in our popular Adopt a Grandparent Program. Our internal environment is enhanced through consistent staffing and a range of small group activities.
