A Community Living Center (CLC) is a VA Nursing Home. There are over 100 Community Living Centers across the country. Unlike many nursing homes in the past, a Community Living Center resembles "home" as much as possible. There are activities for Veterans of all ages. There are family friendly places for visiting. Veterans are invited to decorate their rooms. Pets are allowed to visit or live in the Community Living Center.
