Rhode Island Veterans' Home
The existing Rhode Island Veterans' Home occupies approximately 34 acres of an overall 110 acre site along Mt. Hope Bay in Bristol, Rhode Island. The site once housed the Soldiers Home, built in the 1890’s.
The Veterans' Home consists of twelve single-story cottages for 16 veterans each, paired into six , resulting in accommodations for 192 veterans. Each “neighborhood”, formed from two attached cottages of sixteen (16) resident rooms, is connected to the Commons through connectors with windows and pilaster detail on the outside.
Resident Cottages are designed by SFCS Architects using VA CLC 106 guidelines for household model, resident centered care. Residents will find their new home a safe haven yet one that encourages mobility, activity and socialization. The new Veterans Home will honor Rhode Island’s cherished veterans by giving them a place that they are proud to call home.
