Charlotte Hall Veterans Home has been proudly “Serving Those Who Served” since 1985. The Home is situated on 126 beautiful acres in St. Mary’s County, and offers and a continuum of care from the 168-bed assisted living program to the 286-bed skilled nursing program. Charlotte Hall Veterans Home also offers memory care in secure units. The Home is Medicare/Medicaid certified, and all veterans receive a per diem subsidy from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that reduces their cost of care. The Home is inspected annually, as required by the Office of Health Care Quality, MD Dept. of Health & Mental Hygiene, and by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Our vision is to continually develop and deliver a safe, dignified and compassionate health care system; and provide a nurturing and engaging home environment for Maryland’s veterans and eligible spouses.
We typically have NO WAITING LIST! However, please call to check availability as our census changes every day.
More Affordable - As a benefit of residing in a certified State Veterans Home, veterans who need nursing home or assisted living care are entitled to receive a per diem grant from the US Department of Veterans Affairs towards their cost of care. This benefit is used to lower the veteran’s out of pocket expenses. Needless to say, this enables veterans and their families to save significantly.
On-Site Medical Services - Charlotte Hall Veterans Home provides on-site medical services including Physicians, Rehabilitation, Dentistry, Optometry and Podiatry.
On-Site Pharmacy - Charlotte Hall Veterans Home provides on-site Pharmacy services including a Pharmacist, which will improve the quality of services, reduce waste, and provide readily available pharmacist support on a daily basis.
Quality Care - The Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs works closely with the management contractor’s staff to ensure our veterans receive the best care possible in a clean, caring environment. The staff understands and respects the sacrifices veterans have made and “Serving Those Who Served” is a privilege.

Nursing staff is training hard this week on an extension of our current electronic medical records system. The new feature will allow physicians to electronically communicate their orders throughout the facility rather than paper and fax.
This will undoubtedly save time and resources and allow for quicker care of our residents!... (Full Story & Photos)
