Genesis-affiliated centers are currently offering indoor visitation 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

Comfortable and Confident
"As a long-distance caregiver, it is imperative that I trust and respect the staff giving my elderly relatives the day-to-day attention that they need.
At Mifflin Court, from day one (over a year ago), I have felt comfortable and confident that my loved ones are receiving assistance and guidance in a kind and respectful manner.
The staff, especially the medical workers, is always responsive to my questions and concerns. They know the medical background of my loved one and are quick to pick up on potential problems. They are understanding and calm and take the time to explain to my aunt exactly what is happening, and the course of action to be taken. It helps to keep her anxiety level at a low level, which I greatly appreciate."
