This past year, Texas Veterans arrived at their brand-new home in Houston. The state-of-the-art Veterans home was built specifically to assist and care for the brave men and women who served our country, their spouses and Gold Star parents.
The small neighborhood community facility is now open for applications. It is equipped with 120 beds, with 30 designated to memory care. Please note that at this time, the Houston home can only accept Veterans with private pay or insurance, Medicare or Medicaid.
There are many advantages to living in a Texas State Veterans Home, including the camaraderie of living with fellow Veterans who have similar life experiences.
The Texas Veterans Land Board recognizes that Veterans are a very special and unique population. So all employees at the home receive specialized training to help them understand the military experience, as well as post-traumatic stress.
The Richard A. Anderson home offers alternative therapy modalities to improve the quality of life for our residents such as equine, art, music and pet therapies. In addition, physical, occupational and speech therapy will be provided at the home.
The home represents an over $44 million-dollar investment in the city of Houston and will provide 120–140 full and part-time jobs.
The Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) has eight other Texas State Veterans Homes across the state. These homes provide affordable, long-term skilled nursing care for Texas Veterans, their spouses, and Gold Star Parents. The staff and volunteers at our homes work incredibly hard to provide the residents with special activities and celebrations to show them all how much they are loved.
Houston’s Richard A. Anderson Texas State Veterans Home is well equipped to give Veterans the care they deserve. If you served in the United States military and are seeking a long-term care facility in the Houston area, you too can join the community of Veterans in the brand-new Richard A. Anderson Texas State Veterans Home.
Applications for the home can be found on the Veterans Land Board website here.
