Palmetto Patriots Home - Home of the Greatest Generations.

About Us

From its birth more than 200 years ago, the United States has maintained a tradition of caring for citizens who have served in her military.  When there was a need, these Veterans answered the call.  And now, our country recognizes and honors its obligations to do the same for the.  The Palmetto Patriots Home is a modern testimony to this ongoing commitment.  With funds provided by the Federal government and the state of South Carolina, the 104-all private bed facility was built specifically to serve the Veterans of South Carolina.

Admission to the Palmetto Patriots Home is limited to Veterans who have been separated from the U.S. Armed Forces under honorable conditions and qualify as South Carolina residents who are in need of skilled or intermediate nursing home care.  Eligible Veterans must have served on active duty. 

Palmetto Patriots Home is managed by the South Carolina Department of Mental Health and operated by VSI of South Carolina  on behalf of the State.


Palmetto Patriots Hom is located in Gaffney in the northwestern or “Upstate” of South Carolina.  This area features rolling foothills, easy access to the mountains and lakes, and many active Veteran Service Organizations.  Located just outside of Spartanburg and only miles from Greenville and Charlotte, NC, there is never a shortage of community events through all four beautiful seasons of the year.  Palmetto Patriots Home residents and staff are appreciative of the volunteerism and support found in Gaffney and surrounding communities.
