Georgetown News Democrat

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, D0-Cleveland, a senior member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, announced April 7 that new federal resources have become available to expand the Ohio Veterans Home in Georgetown.

“Our veterans deserve first-class facilities that match the first-class service they have provided to our country,” Brown said. “These new federal resources will help expand the usable square footage for veterans and their families at the Georgetown Home, while working to fulfill the promise made by our country to take care of those who have served us.”

The Georgetown Ohio Veterans Home was built in 2003 and offers nursing and hospice care for veterans. The facility also specializes in providing care to veterans with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. It currently has 168 beds, 21 of them being for hospice care.

The facility will receive more than $2 million from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the new space will be used as a multi-purpose area.
