In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have upgraded our HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems. We recently completed installation of ultra violet lighting into our six air handler units that service our Home. The UV lighting addition has been shown to reduce the amount of airborne viruses and bacteria and enhance overall air quality. We are pleased to share this recent upgrade with you and let you know that we continue to evaluate additional systems that would improve our environment. Resident, Staff and Visitor safety and comfort remain our top priority.
Thank you for your support as we continue to enhance our facility and exterior grounds.
Tattered, faded or damaged flags may be retired properly at the VFW locations listed in the link below.
TOBY KEITH VISITS LISVH
Our residents enjoyed an afternoon with a fellow Patriot, thank you Toby for visiting our Home!
Not only did Toby spend time at the Home, but he invited our residents as honored guests to his performance at the Brookhaven Amphitheater, where he brought them up on stage to sing the last song of the night. It was truly a night to remember for LISVH!!!
What Adventure Have You Chosen Today?
- LISVH Launches Virtual Reality
The LI State Veterans Home is launching a new and innovative program to enable the veterans at the facility to go beyond the walls of the nursing home. Whether you are exploring the Ganges River on a 360 degree view guided tour, experiencing flight from a fighter jet off the deck of the USS Eisenhower, snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or re-visiting your honeymoon destination in Maui, VR makes the veteran’s experience possible.
Donning specialized headsets, Virtual Reality (VR) will enable veterans to experience a whole new world of possibilities as it relates to travel, entertainment, education and other unique encounters that they would not be able to achieve due to physical limitations.
The goal of the program is to provide an immersive and meaningful experience for aging veterans living in the State Veterans Home. Led by Certified Recreation Therapists, Virtual Reality will be offered to residents of varying cognitive abilities with a focus on promoting adventure and education while providing a fulfilling and interactive experience. The use of a Virtual Reality program will benefit veterans suffering from PTSD, depression, dementia and other diseases by encouraging conversation, creating excitement, and increasing the potential for happiness, wellness, stimulation, and social involvement.
