Redding Veterans Home scores high with USDVA

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – The Veterans Home of California-Redding recently produced high scores in the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA) initial survey.  

The survey means that the Redding Veterans home is now formally recognized and certified as a state veterans home in compliance with all USDVA standards.

Areas of review focused on the Residential Care for the Elderly (RCFE) and included evaluations on the quality of care for the residents, administration, plant operations, admission policies and dietary practices and other areas such as health and safety codes and policies and procedures of operation.

“I am very pleased with the results of the survey,” said Diane Vanderpot, CalVet Undersecretary for Veterans Homes. “Our mission of caring for veterans and their families is now acknowledged by the USDVA thanks to dedicated work by the employees and administration at the Redding Veterans Home.”

Amenities at the Veterans homes of California include single occupancy rooms, three meals per day with in between meal snacks, weekly housekeeping, scheduled transportation, opportunities for worship in all denominations, daily activities and satellite television to name a few.  

The Redding home also offers certified nursing care, medication management, weekly entertainment, special events and a beautiful facility for which all veteran residents can call home.
