Washington Veterans Home Port Orchard

The Washington Veterans Home was built in 1910 in Port Orchard and is located on a 31- acre bluff overlooking the Sinclair Inlet of Puget Sound.

Today the Veterans Home is a state-of-the-art, non-institutional facility providing a "Resident Centered Care" concept that focuses resources around the individual resident.
