IMPORTANT COVID-19 NOTICE: In order to protect our residents, we ask that you do not visit any of our Veterans Community Living Centers at this time. Only essential individuals are currently allowed to enter. We appreciate your understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please call any VCLC facility by phone.

At the Veterans Community Living Center at Rifle, our staff is known for showing love and compassion to our residents. Giving residents a hug, rubbing their hand or sitting next to them on the arm of a chair are just a few of the ways we give care that comes from the heart.

The Veterans Community Living Center at Rifle is an 89-bed nursing home, with a 12-bed secure memory care unit. We offer the following services:

  • Long-term care: Residents receive medical and non-medical care, including skilled nursing services, physical, occupational and speech therapy, social activities, and assistance with bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living.
  • Memory care: For individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, we provide specialized activities and memory care in a 12-person, all-male secure neighborhood.
  • Short-term rehabilitation: Physical, occupational and speech therapies are available for individuals seeking to return home following a qualifying hospital stay. Therapy specialists work with each individual to regain skills and improve physical strength, endurance and aerobic capacity.
  • Short-term "respite" care: Short-term stays are available when home-care providers or family members are unavailable.
  • End-of-life services: Comfort-oriented care and family support are available to individuals during this time.
