Care at the Oregon Veterans' Home - Lebanon

Residents at the Oregon Veterans’ Home in Lebanon (OVHL) receive care from a nursing staff with the skills and understanding to meet the unique and special needs of veterans and their family members. The OVHL is Medicare and Medicaid certified, and incorporates the latest advances in skilled nursing and rehabilitation.

Skilled Nursing

In order to be admitted to any Oregon Veterans' Home, a resident must be in need of skilled nursing care as reccommended by their Primary Care Physician (PCP). OVHL's nursing model features individualized, goal-oriented care that includes comprehensive around-the-clock services, on-call physician coverage, medication administration, a quality memory care unit, certified physical rehabilitation, and speech and occupational therapists. The OVHL has a higher healthcare professional-to-resident ratio, which means a superior level of care day and night. We are excited about the highly trained interdisciplinary teams of health care professionals who provide routine healthcare assessments to better meet the needs of our honored veteran residents.

Rehabilitation

This skilled service is available to any resident at the OVHL who requires short-term rehabilitative aid during their recovery to allow them to return home after hospitalization. The Home’s nursing team is complemented by physical, occupational, and speech therapists who provide specific physician ordered services that help our guests meet their maximum rehabilitative potential. Our Admissions Coordinator is available to work closely with hospital discharge planners to quickly process these applications. Rehabilitation services are provided as needed to improve and maintain the veteran’s highest level of functioning and quality of life. These services begin with a thorough evaluation and written plan of care before the appropriate therapy is provided. Among the therapies that are available are pain management, ultrasound, muscle strengthening, communication strategies, orthotics, and mobility retraining.
