The Georgia War Veterans Home in Augusta is a 192-bed skilled nursing care facility located adjacent to the campus of Augusta University, across from the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center. It is operated under an interagency agreement between the GDVS and Augusta University.
Dedicated in 1969, the home was the first of its kind built with federal financial grant assistance. It is one of a select group of such institutions accredited by The Joint Commission.
Along with the provision of skilled nursing care, the home serves as a teaching facility to acquaint medical, dental, pharmacy, and allied health students with the medical conditions and diseases of the aged. This provides students with practical experience and helps them gain expertise in treating the disabled and the elderly.
Additionally, the home contains a GDVS Veterans Field Service Office to assist veterans in the area.
