Recreation and Activities

 

  

Activities and programs at the Tennessee State Veterans Homes are provided to promote physical skills and social interaction, as well as increase each resident's emotional well-being. Recreational, cultural, and intellectual activities are planned on a daily basis for both individuals and large groups. The activities are based around the interests and capabilities of the residents.

Residents, staff, and families participate in community events such as the annual Humboldt Strawberry Festival and Parade, Nursing Home Olympics, Veterans Day Celebrations, Nursing Home Week, and much more.

We offer a resident council which encourages residents to participate in the governing of each facility. It ensures residents' input into quality of life issues as they pertain to individual and group interests and concerns.
