Our home features six separate living units, each designed to meet the specific needs of the members who reside there. In addition to a chapel, canteen, bank, beauty/barber shop, library, clinic, restorative room and large recreational area, there are several conference rooms which can also be used for private dining with your loved one.
Our spacious outdoor areas include "Heroes Park", an eight acre venue featuring a large covered pavilion, walking paths, memorial benches, playground, basketball court and beautifully landscaped grounds. A "Memorial Flag Plaza" graces the front of our campus and includes an honorary memorial wall, featuring memory tiles that can be purchased to honor any veteran or current service member. Flags representing all branches of military service are flown in front of the plaza.
Message from the Administrator
I have had the privilege of working at Norfolk Veterans' Home since 2008. To me the word "Home" in our name really says it all. The "home" is made up of the most dedicated and caring individuals I have ever worked with. We are blessed to be able to provide care and compassion to individuals who served our country and ensured the freedoms we enjoy. Many of the teammates who work here have a connection to the military, either having served themselves or having a loved one who served. This brings a sense of commitment and duty to give back to the individuals we serve. The individuals who live here are called Members not Residents. Our Members share a common bond because of their military service and this carries over to the relationships they form with each other. This camaraderie is also evident in our dedicated volunteer base who selflessly serve our members.
