Four Ways CME Can Make Your Next Veterans Home Project a Success!

By Cindy Juhas on Mar 11, 2021 11:02:10 AM

Veterans Homes are facilities that provide nursing home, assisted living, and adult day care services for American Veterans. They are owned, operated, and managed by state governments and further funded by the federal government. In 2018, approximately 7% of our population were veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
