ARIZONA STATE VETERAN HOME – YUMA ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR RESIDENTS, STAFF
YUMA, Ariz. – With completion nearing, the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services (ADVS) will host an informational event for the new Arizona State Veteran Home-Yuma (ASVH-Yuma) on January 28th and 29th. During this event, ADVS staff will discuss how to become a resident or employee of ASVH-Yuma. This event is free and open to the public. Those interested can come inside the ADVS Veteran Benefits Office or drive through the parking lot and pick up information about the home.
ADVS broke ground on ASVH-Yuma in 2019 after the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs State Home Construction Grant Program approved establishment costs for the new 80-bed skilled-nursing Veteran home, which will hold three 20-bed long-term care units and one memory care unit. The grant covers 65% of construction costs, with the State securing matching funds.
ASVH-Yuma is now accepting admissions for residents. The facility provides professional skilled nursing and rehabilitative care for the geriatric and chronically ill Veterans and dependents/surviving spouses. ASVH-Yuma provides furnished and private resident rooms equipped with specially designed modifications for all mobility levels in a homelike atmosphere.
ASVH-Yuma is also currently looking to fill a variety of positions including, but not limited, to a Social Services Supervisor, Therapeutic Program Manager, Assistant Director of Nursing, several nursing positions (Registered Nurse, Certified Nursing Assistant, Licensed Practical Nurses) and more.
This will be the third Arizona State Veteran Home, with others in Phoenix and Tucson, and is scheduled to open Spring 2022.
