Joining Forces for Georgia's Veterans
Located conveniently in Augusta's downtown medical community, Georgia War Veterans Nursing Home provides continuous professional nursing care to veterans of Georgia who have served in the armed forces during war times. The home is owned and funded by the Georgia Department of Veterans Service and operated through an interagency agreement with Augusta University. Through this association, Georgia War Veterans Nursing Home is considered a leader in the area of geriatric educational training for Augusta University.
We have returned to inside visitations at the Georgia War Veterans Nursing Home. The courtyard will continue to be utilized as weather permits for outdoor visitation. Visitations can be scheduled by calling the residents' floor. Families may continue to send packages to their loved ones. Upon receipt, all packages will be collected outside of the facility and sanitized prior to delivery to the resident. We ask that all families continue to comply with the rules outlined in the handbook.
