Southeastern Veterans' Center

Veterans know they are headed to a welcoming, patriotic home

Situated along the Schuylkill River in Spring City, Chester County, the Southeastern Veterans’ Center (SEVC) provides peaceful, scenic living, while only 45 minutes from downtown Philadelphia. 

Dozens of American flags line both sides of the drive leading up to the entrance of the SEVC, culminating with even more flags representing each branch of military service. The patriotic theme of our home continues throughout the inside of the building with military artwork and displays, reminding every resident that they are celebrated every day for their service and sacrifice.

Patriotic symbols are not the only way our residents are honored. SEVC provides exceptional care for its residents thanks to a professional staff -- many of whom are veterans -- who proudly come to work each day excited and are honored to take care of true American heroes. Visits to the home by current service members and from representatives of local veteran service organizations are very common and provide a constant reminder that our residents are thought about often throughout the Spring City community.



Living Here


An Active Lifestyle With All The Comforts

Residents at SEVC enjoy an active lifestyle with a full schedule of organized programs from bingo night, to gardening groups, to regular summer visits by a local ice cream truck. For residents looking for personal time, the home includes a glassed-lined passageway to “Main Street,” which supports a bank, post office, all denominational chapel, library, barber/stylist shop and snack shop. When our residents want to relax and enjoy the outdoors, they can either sit on the screened porch overlooking the home’s lush grounds or take a leisurely stroll around the facility to admire the beautiful landscaping.

Completely furnished modern rooms

We take great pride in providing all the comforts of home, and that includes a personal living space that residents can personalize with their military treasures, family photos and favorite quilts. Each furnished room provides a safe and cheerful area for residents to retreat to for relaxation or for a good night’s sleep after a busy day.

Complete Medical Services

The health of our residents is a top priority. That is why we have a medical director and a staff of dedicated clinicians who provide a continuum of health care that addresses all aspects of the treatment plan for our residents.

Pharmacy services

Quick and convenient care is important to our residents. An on-site licensed pharmacist and qualified staff helps to provide a full range of pharmacy services to assure that our residents receive the medications they need for healthy living.

Therapy provided by a trained staff

Each home provides physical, occupational and speech therapy tailored to the specific health needs of residents. The supervised exercises and training use advanced techniques and equipment so that each resident can reach their highest level of independence as quickly as possible.

24-hour professional nursing team care

Key to our team is a well-trained and caring nursing staff, and that is exactly what you find at our homes 24 hours a day. Our nurses work together to tailor a care plan that takes into consideration the unique dietary, social and spiritual needs of each resident.

Recreational and leisure activities

​Residents at our homes can choose from a wide variety of social events, scheduled outings or more independent activities. Whether its bingo or billiards at the home, attending a professional sports game or going on a shopping trip, to just enjoying a good book under an outdoor pavilion, our residents lead active and diverse lives.

Meals prepared by trained dietary staff

Good nutrition is vital to our residents’ well-being. That’s why a professional food service manager and clinical dietitian at each home take great pleasure in providing well-balanced meals that can be modified to address individual dietary and therapeutic needs.

Social services

For times when our residents need someone to talk to for any gamut of issues they may deal with in their personal lives or even connected to their military service, the certified professionals in our Social Services Department are available to provide counseling, conversation, problem-solving and information on community resources.

Religious services and spiritual guidance

We recognize that spirituality is important to our residents. Each of our homes features an in-house chapel, along with chaplains who conduct religious services and who are also available to any resident in need of spiritual counseling or fellowship.

Barber and beauty service

​​Our residents never forget their military roots and the importance of personal grooming. Every home is staffed with a licensed barber and beautician for those times when a hair appointment is just the thing our residents need to feel good about themselves.

24-hour security

​​The safety of our residents is our No. 1 priority. A staff of security officers ensures protection, emergency responses and a safe environment to all residents and employees on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week.

Transportation services

​​Our homes are equipped with vans and buses to transport residents to local community activities for that fun get-away or a nearby medical appointment. Some vehicles are even equipped with adaptive devices to accommodate those with limited mobility.

Community support through volunteers

​​Volunteers are a vital part of our team and play an important role in the well-being of our residents. They assist with activities and field trips, distributing mail, making one-on-one visits, escorting wheelchair-bound residents to activities, assisting residents at mealtimes, reading to residents, and much more!

Additional amenities

​​In addition to the availability of cable TV and Internet, each home has a charming library and snack bar/gift shop commonly known as the “Canteen.”

Honoring Our Heroes

A Community That Offers Fun and Excitement

Living a fun, active lifestyle goes beyond the SEVC grounds for our residents. Philadelphia offers our residents culture and entertainment with big museums, art galleries and four major professional sports teams to enjoy. But many of our residents are drawn closer to home where they can attend car shows, go fishing, or do some shopping. Popular among our residents are local museums like the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center in West Chester, Museum of Historic Vehicles in Boyertown and the Mack Truck Museum in Allentown.

For a good-feel trip to honor fellow veterans, residents only need to travel to nearby Royersford and stroll through town admiring the “hometown hero” banners that line the streets featuring photos and military background on the local heroes who served and sacrificed. Of course, a junket to the Valley Forge National Historical Park, 3,500-acres of monuments, meadows, and woodlands commemorating the sacrifices and perseverance of the Revolutionary War generation, is wildly popular with our residents.


Excellent care. Hannah (social worker) is great. She cares for you as a person not as a patient.
