Connecticut State Benefits
The Health Care Facility at the CT Veterans’ Home provides long term care to veterans with chronic and disabling medical conditions. These conditions include but are not limited to heart and lung disease, stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The program also provides Hospice care, Palliative care and Respite care.
The Health Care Facility is licensed by the CT Department of Public Health and Addiction Services as a Chronic Disease Hospital.
To qualify for admission to the Health Care Facility a veteran must:
- Submit an application in advance
- Submit a report of medical history and physical examination
- Pass an eligibility check
- Have a chronic medical condition or need which requires skilled nursing care or requires 24 hour assistance or supervision with activities of daily living
At times, admission may be deferred until an appropriate bed is available.
The kayaking project was founded due to the need to support veterans with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Being supportive of a non-drug-related treatment is always preferred, as it supports the goals of the Elk’s Drug Prevention Program, as well as the Emblem Club’s Drug Awareness Committee’s ongoing projects, according to project’s staff.
