Caring for a physically or cognitively impaired family member at home, 24-hours per day, 7-days per week, can be one of life's most difficult challenges. Whether you are a spouse or a caregiver, the Adult Day Health Care at the Long Island State Veterans Home (LISVH) may be a welcome solution. Participants at the Adult Day Health Care program receive the skilled nursing care they require while enabling them to continue to live at home. Adult Day Health Care permits caregivers to meet professional and family obligations or take a well deserved rest while their loved one attends the program.
Adult Day Health Care at the LISVH is designed to promote socialization, stimulation and maximize the participant's independence while enhancing quality of life. The LISVH's medical model Adult Day Health Care program provides comprehensive medical, nursing and personal care services combined with engaging social activities for physically or cognitively impaired adults. Our program is staffed by a caring and compassionate team of multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals who evaluate each participant and customize an individualized plan of care specific to their health and social needs. We are committed to caring for our nation's heroes with the dignity and respect they deserve.
The LISVH Adult Day Health Care program accepts honorably discharged veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces. Admission to the LISVH Adult Day Health Care program is open to all veterans regardless of period of service (war or peace time service), service connected disability or location in which the veteran served our nation. The LISVH Adult Day Health Care program also accepts the spouse or widow of qualifying veterans, as well as Gold Star Parents, who require adult day health care.
||The Adult Day Program is awesome. The staff offers honor and respect to all residents. There is such a fellowship between the veterans, it is just remarkable to me.
It is like a big family here, the atmos-phere jubilant, and the staff is really fastidious in the care of residents.
It is remarkable how the caregivers work as a team – nothing gets past them.
My dad’s speech has improved tremendously since he has been in the program, and the Adult Day Program provides such fun activities to keep the residents engaged. The entertainment is wonderful, too! The facility is always investing to provide constant improvements and additions. I’m very satisfied and secure knowing my dad is here every day.
