ODVA Lebanon Home for Veterans

Lebanon, OR

Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs Lebanon Home is a long term care facility defined by the Veterans Health Administration as a Community Living Center.  This 13-acre facility can accommodate 154 residents in 11 individual houses, each supporting 12-14 residents, which are grouped into ‘neighborhoods.’ These neighborhoods are connected to an administration/community center building offering amenities such as large and small gathering rooms, a chapel, a barbershop, a beauty parlor and more. Walking paths lead through carefully designed outdoor spaces and landscape areas.  Outdoor spaces include site amenities for patients and visiting families to meet all year round. They are organized for way finding and as comfort for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease. The project required the compliance of State Energy Efficient Design (SEED) guidelines.  The Lebanon Home strives to minimize potable water consumption and uses vegetated swales to treat stormwater on site before releasing it into the city’s storm sewer system.
