Honoring Our Veterans
365 Days A Year

As a VA contracted facility, Centennial Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center is home to quite a few veterans who have served our country with distinction in the US Armed Forces.

We have initiated a uniquely specialized “Veterans Experience” as we care for our distinguished vets on many levels, meeting their physical, spiritual and social-emotional needs. Our objective is twofold: To enhance their comfort – making them feel at home, and to show our respect and appreciation for those willing to sacrifice for our safety.

With an American Flag draped at the entrance, our dedicated Veterans Wing embodies a patriotic ambiance with attention to details big and small . . . from the model airplanes that will line our hallways to the flags displayed at every door identifying each resident and their branch of service. In our special Veterans Lounge, with large framed military posters adorning the walls, our vets enjoy a familiar and welcoming setting where they can relax, play games and shoot the breeze.

“Every new admit receives a cap emblazoned with ‘We Support Our Vets’ and an army-style ID tag,” says Sam Krohn, Vice President of Operation. “We want our veterans to know how much we value them on a daily basis and recognize that they are members of a special club. We have plans to create a Wall of Honor showcasing our veterans and have ordered camouflage jackets for all the caregivers in this wing.”

Centennial’s recreation team has structured an activities program geared towards our veterans’ interests, featuring history movies, happy hour, chat groups and special trips.
