Vets Homes State-of-the-Art

Ocean County Donation

With the dedication of the new wing at the Vineland Veterans Memorial Home, New Jersey now has three state-of-the-art Veterans Homes serving nearly 900 veteran residents.
Paramus, our northern most home, was completed in 1986 and has the largest resident population of all our Homes. Menlo Park, in the middle of the state, is our second newest home completed in 1999. The facility is centered around a “Town Square” which serves not only as the social hub for the residents but doubles as an open area for a variety of entertainment programs.

All of New Jersey's State Veteran Homes can accommodate a full spectrum of residents nursing needs. Additionally, each Veteran Home can boast of a full range of amenities including chapels, libraries, barbershops, beauty salons, clinical offices, private examination rooms, complete physical therapy services, a snack shops and much more. The new Vineland facility also contains a wing dedicated to independent living – the first for a state Veteran Home.

All the Homes have a host of volunteer programs. These programs, a majority of which are run by Veteran Organizations, significantly enhance the quality of life for our Veterans through donations of both time and funds.

We invite veterans and their families to contact one of our Homes to schedule a tour. You will be impressed with both the facilities and the professional caring staff.
