Why Select Charlotte Hall Veterans Home?

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.
