They are owned, operated and managed by state governments. They date back to the post-Civil War era when many states created them to provide shel- ter to homeless and disabled Veter- ans. As rnany of you know, NOrth Dakota has a wondertid State Vet- erans Home, once known as the Old Soldiers Home. The facility rests on a lush green landscape nes- tled in the quiet community of Lis- bon. The Home has two levels of care (1) Basic Care with a capacity of 98 and (2) Skilled Care with a capacity of 52. The home features the use of ge- othermal heat, t amily visiting rooms, barber shop, library, recre- ational room, bank, on-site phar- macy, and a post office. They are currently working to complete their outdoor shop where can participate in wood working projects such as building birdhouses. The basic care unit has two pods with four households per pod. Vet- erans and their spouses live very independently in basic care but medical and nursing supervision is available• Meals arc provided in the central dining area and there are snacks available around the clock. The skilled care unit is for Vet- erans needing a little more assis- tance in their physical needs as well as daily living. Care ranges from total assistance to supervision of one or two care needs. There are many activities to in- clude bingo, camp fires, crafts, bi- cycle riding, anaong many others. Rent :for Basic care is calculated at 55% of net income arrived at by subtracting you allowable medical expenses. The monthly max rate is $1850. Skilled care residents are charged a daily rate as developed by the State of ND Human Serv- ices Case ]nix system. Take it from me, the rates are far below what the average Nursing home charges for this level of care. tf you have any questions or would like an application packet sent out to you call the office at 352-5030. You may also contact the Veterans Home directly with questions and the contact is Susie Schlecht at 701-683-6540. Thank you for your service.
