At UMH, it is our honor to be a place many veterans call home. We can never show enough gratitude for their service to our country. A growing number of our residents have been able to take advantage of the Veteran’s Aid and Attendance and Medicaid benefits. For specific questions and to apply on line go to http://www.va.gov/healthbenefits/online/. If you would like to speak with a member of our staff who has helped connect veterans and their families with these resources, please contact the UMH community closest to you.

Our Crosby Commons assisted and independent living community is proud to be a part of the Veteran’s History Project http://www.loc.gov/vets/about.html. Staff and volunteers work with veterans to create a first-hand account of their military service. By making video recordings, capturing oral histories and displaying photos, journals, letters, official military documents, maps and other artifacts; we help to preserve a part of history to share with generations to come.
As a special way of honoring the men and women who served our country, staff at Middlewoods of Newington assisted and independent living community interviewed residents to learn their personal stories and created a documentary “In Service to Their Country” (below); a heartwarming and inspiring account that truly captures the experience and sentiment of many of ourvets.
Honoring and caring for those who have fought for our country and even given their lives for our freedom is just one small way that UMH communities show their gratitude. For more information on how UMH communities honor veteran’s please contact us today.
