Coronavirus UpdateView All Updates
Dear Family and Friends,
We understand the huge toll that separation has taken on our residents and families. We are excited to announce that our Genesis-affiliated Centers will now allow indoor visitation at all times and for all residents (regardless of vaccination status), with the exception of the three scenarios listed below. CMS, the federal agency that regulates nursing centers, has updated its visitation guidance due to high resident vaccination rates and a drop in COVID-19 cases around the country. read more

There are so many successful outcomes to share that it is difficult to pick just one. We had a resident come to us after smoking for 35-years and was able to quit prior to returning home. She was educated about her disease process and shown how to manage her diagnosis by our highly skilled Respiratory Therapist. She still remains smoke free and the family is extremely grateful as is the resident.
I'd stay another couple of weeks!
"The other facility wasn't that great, but here I love it! If I could afford it I'd stay another couple of weeks. If I'd went home straight from the hospital, I'd end up back at the hospital within a week. Mentally I wanted to go home but physically I knew I couldn't and shouldn't. Everything I learned in rehabilitation I will use at home, especially to stop when I need to take a rest."
The pulmonary program is very good here
"The pulmonary program is very good here. I've been at others before and this is the best one because it offers an actual pulmonary program with the intensity of rehabilitation with the therapists. It was 100% better for me coming to rehab, as opposed to going directly home from the hospital. It's not the same quality of services provided. It's just not comparable. I learned better breathing techniques and am using these at home."
