Laughlin Appointed to Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home Council

Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati recently appointed Senator Dan Laughlin to serve as the Senate’s representative on the Advisory Council of the Pennsylvania Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home, one of Pennsylvania’s six veterans’ homes.

The 15-member Advisory Council meets quarterly and advises the state Adjutant General on the management, operation and the adequacy of facilities and services at the Home located at 560 E. 3rd Street in Erie.

The care provided at the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home includes personal care, skilled nursing care, domiciliary care and dementia care. These facilities offer qualified veterans and their spouses dedicated, superior care.

“It is truly an honor to be appointed to serve on the Advisory Council of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home,” said Senator Laughlin.  “I appreciate the opportunity to work with the Adjutant General and the Department of Military & Veterans Affairs to ensure that our veterans are provided a wide range of health care and quality of life services.”

Built originally to house Civil War veterans, the facility has kept pace with changes in health care delivery. In resident and family satisfaction surveys, the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home consistently earns ratings well above national averages in many important categories.
