They really took care of the residents... each resident's door was decorated with items that reflected the branch of service the resident served in and you could tell from the way the staff interacted with the residents that they sincerely cared about them. As my father-in-law grew sicker the staff was very accommodating to me and to my wife... they stopped in often to see if we needed anything and they let us visit at any time, even when my wife decided one evening at around 10pm that she wanted to see him. When he passed away the staff was very sympathetic and understanding. Various employees told us how sorry they were and shared stories about their time with him.I would recommend this facility to anyone with a veteran in their family that is need of long-term care. The staff truly does care about the residents and their families.

The New York State Veterans Home located in Oxford, New York is the Best facility for veterans in the entire New York State. I had recently heard from others the facility was more like a hotel with wonderful service than a nursing home. I had found out for myself when my Grandfather a Veteran himself decided to move into the facility after the death of my Grandmother. We had reviewed much information and taken a tour of the facility and many others before we decided that this would be the best facility by far for his permanent residency. My Grandfather Robert has been in the New York State Veterans home for the last 6 years and has enjoyed every minute of his stay there. The staff and administration are overly polite and are quick to meet any of his wants or needs. My grandfather was particularly excited because the facility allows cats!! There is a room within the facility that holds residents cats! How about that! Every other facility we had toured did not have this as an option and where my grandfather was staying is where he wanted his cat too. So besides the cat room they have recreation room where the residents get together and play games, do crafts, play Bingo, and listen to music or can just sit and visit with their family in a great looking comfortable environment. The nurses and aides at this facility are very sweet and my grandfather has come to know them like they are family and they treat him as good as family. The facility is luxurious compared to any facility in the New York area and is very well kept by housekeeping. The dining is well thought out and adjusted to the needs of the residents and their cafe is wonderful to eat from as a visitor. I can sleep well knowing my grandfather is in a safe, loving, warm, caring, clean, fun environment.I have recommended this facility to many people and have come to know many of the residents at the facility. Thanks to the New York Veterans Home in Oxford, New York. They deserve a five star review by far!!!
