Activities and Recreation at Maine Veterans’ Homes
Veterans have plenty of choices at Maine Veterans’ Homes: How to plan their days; what activities they’d like to try; whom to spend time with; when to visit with family and friends.
Regular social interaction is good for mental and emotional health - and it can have physical health benefits, too. That’s why we offer such a wide range of opportunities for our residents each day.
While it’s never required for residents to take part in our planned events, these frequent, fun outings and activities help residents and staff get to know one another and enjoy something different.
Things like fishing trips, T-ball games, bingo, music and plays, and more are opportunities open to every resident. And our caring, dedicated staff members make sure all of our veterans can enjoy the activity to their comfort level and ability.
Take a peek at a few of the activities we’ve hosted in this video.
