Boise Veterans home


The "Old Soldiers Home" formally opened in Boise in May 1895. It was eventually replaced by the New Home which was dedicated in November 1966.

Situated on a sprawling, tree-lined campus at the base of the beautiful Boise foothills, the Boise Veterans Home provides a quiet, peaceful setting just a few convenient miles from the heart of downtown Boise.

The facility offers a 36-bed residential/ domiciliary unit, and a 131 bed skilled nursing care unit including a 17-bed special care unit for veterans with Alzheimer's disease or related conditions. Each room is individualized to provide residents with maximum privacy, and all have windows and individually controlled heating and air conditioning. The facility features a physical therapy center, a spacious dining room, pleasant common areas, a large covered patio and courtyards. Services available to residents include extensive activity programs, onsite veteran and social services, library services, and transportation to medical appointments.
