Nursing Home for Veterans

Published on May 3rd, 2018

WSPA reported that officials are working to establish a nursing home for veterans in Cherokee County.  The federal government has finally approved funding for its portion of the cost.  The federal government approving its portion of roughly $40 million to build a 108 bed nursing home for veterans on 35 acres off Hampshire Drive. He said 85 percent of the nursing home is being funded by the VA (Veterans Affairs), and the other 15 percent from the state.

“It’s going to be a very nice facility with security and very nice grounds,” Humphries said.

He said Cherokee County is paying for the land, and it’s an investment expected to impact the county’s economy through jobs during and after construction.

“As long as we have veterans, we’ll have this nursing home so this is a forever business coming to our community,” Humphries said. “We think it’s just a great opportunity to serve our community.”

“Especially the elderly people that are disabled… They need help,” Martin said.
