WMBF recently reported that construction started on a $56 million nursing home for veterans in Florence, S.C. It’s one of two new facilities being built across the state to give veterans and their families more access to care. State and local leaders said the project is a big deal not only for veterans and their families, but the entire community.
The state of the art facility will house 104 veterans with their own private bedrooms and bathrooms. The community center for the nursing home includes a large activity space, chapel, physical therapy area and staff space.
Florence County has around 10,000 veterans in the area alone. He said the new nursing facility is a step to giving all veterans a good quality of life in the place they call home.
