Pueblo — Looking for more ways to help older people recover from this pandemic, News5 is checking in to Pueblo’s backed living facilities to serve the heroes of our country.

Residents living in Pueblo VA Community Living CenterIt has been dealt with for almost a year off the coast of Oakshire Lane. Since March, veterans have not been allowed to eat together.

The staff has developed a walkie-talkie system to encourage the visit of loved ones. The system allows visitors to get out of the transparent window and communicate using the device.
Now that the vaccine has begun to roll out, CLC RecTherapist Dillon Thomas says all men who wanted the vaccine received both doses.

“Isolation was the most difficult part for our veterans,” explained Thomas. “I don’t know if the veteran who took the shot was relieved, but I think this is another step forward.”

If the weather is nice, Thomas says he has a lot of fun activities outside. Since the story first aired, the center has received many visits from people who just want them to know they haven’t been forgotten.
You don’t need to know a veteran to send them a letter. Thank you to 2600 Oakshire Lane.
