Saluting Our Veterans & Their Dedication To Our Nation

Concord Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center, the only VA contracted nursing home serving Ocean and Monmouth Counties, is proud to have many veterans call our facility home. Respectful of our vets’ distinctive needs and in recognition of their dedicated service, we offer special Veterans Programming year round – with many opportunities for socializing in the company of peers. Our veterans recently enjoyed an outing to the Legion in Toms River for an early Thanksgiving Dinner celebrated with veterans from throughout the area.

At Concord, Veterans Day observance is especially meaningful. Our annual Tribute Program led by Chaplain Diana Speidel on Thursday, Nov. 9 opened the holiday weekend. Following a candle lighting memorial ceremony, each veteran and war widow was honored with a pin and certificate. On Saturday, residents enjoyed lively festivities with patriotic music and dancing.
