Date:9/7/2007

ERIE, Pa., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs today dedicated a new, $8.5 million dementia/Alzheimer's unit at the Pennsylvania Soldiers' and Sailors' Home.

"With the completion of this 32-bed dementia/Alzheimer's unit, we mark another milestone in caring for Pennsylvania's 1.1 million veterans who have served so selflessly on behalf of all Americans," said Maj. Gen. Jessica L. Wright, state adjutant general. "Now, all of the commonwealth's veteran's homes are able to provide veterans who suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's disease with long-term care in a safe and secure environment."

The Pa. Soldiers' and Sailors' Home is under the direction of Commandant Nancy Stevenson. Set on a 26-acre campus overlooking Lake Erie, the home also has 75 beds for nursing care and 100 beds for domiciliary care. It opened in 1886 and is located at 560 E. Third St., Erie.

DMVA also operates state veterans homes in Hollidaysburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Scranton and Spring City. The homes are available to veterans who have served in the U.S. armed forces or Pennsylvania military forces, released from service under honorable conditions and are residents of the commonwealth. A spouse or surviving spouse of an eligible veteran is also eligible for admission.
