Wisconsin Veterans Home at King

The Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is where love of country merges with over 125 years​ of Caring for America's Heroes. All branches of the armed forces are represented here. Each branch has its own esprit de corps, but all are united as veterans of this great country in a community with camaraderie borne out of shared military experience.

The Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is a long term and rehabilitative care facility caring for veterans, a veteran's spouse, a veteran's widow and Gold Star Parents (parents who have lost a son or daughter in combat). We offer quality medical and nursing care that enhances quality of life. Our highly trained and dedicated staff strive to meet the unique needs of veterans by providing compassionate care built on the foundation of integrity, honor and respect.

​Spanning across 320 acres of the richest​, most picturesque scenery, the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is a gem like no other. Exquisitely nestled between the bluest of blue spring-fed lakes, embraced by lush green rolling hills, the sights and sounds of this magical setting will take your breath away. This unsurpassed beauty is not commonly home to a long term care facility, but how appropriate a setting providing peace and tranquility for those who bore the battle. ​​​​​​
