In preparation for the fall COVID and Flu season and with the new COVID BA.5 variant circulating, we are recommending all nursing home and assisted living residents receive their COVID booster and Flu shots. Centers will provide access to Flu shots in September and boosters are available now.

Dr. Mark WagnerMedical Director
I have been the medical director working with Genesis Healthcare for many years. I take care of many residents at Mifflin Center, Mifflin Court and Berkshire Commons. I have also worked as an attending physician at many other nursing homes in Berks county. I have seen the most diligent work during this pandemic at managing the safety of our residents. Our numbers of positive cases have been managed well with use of personal protective equipment, social distancing and following all of the CDC guidelines. I have had a very positive experience with Genesis management of the pandemic, with stricter adherence to the guidelines than other facilities where I have cared for patients. Our skilled facility has a very low re-hospitalization rate and excellent rate of return to home or previous level of care due to all the services we provide. If you would like to speak with me, please contact the Center at 610-777-7841.

Genuine sincere support and love
Dear Nursing Staff,
Many thanks and appreciation for the genuine sincere support and love for our dad while he was under your watchful care. Your interactions were always professional, positive, encouraging, and gentle. Please know how much this means. Do not underestimate the impact you have had on our dad and us. When our energy and emotions were most vulnerable, you stepped in, ready to offer sympathy, words of hope, and smiles of compassion and understanding. This has been a challenging and difficult journey, one which will stay in our hearts for a lifetime. Your staff so willingly accommodated and connected with our dad, who at times could be defiant and uncooperative. He was a fighter, stubborn, and determined to stay with those he loved as long as his body and mind would allow. You honored and respected who he was. He will truly be missed, but his heart and strong character will live on in his children, wife, family, and friends always.

Going above and beyond
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of the compassion and care you provided to my mom and myself. From the moment she was admitted, you all were an amazing care team. I miss her terribly and am thankful I had the time to spend with her under your guided hands. Had my mom been more present, no doubt she would have loved you all and felt at home. Thank you for going above and beyond to make us both feel comfortable.

Thank you for EVERYTHING
On behalf of my mom and myself, I want to say thank you for everything you do daily to care for my mom. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for every smile you share, every activity you plan, every call you take and paper you process. Thank you for your knowledge and caring, love and sharing. Thank you for the wheelchair you push and every wipe of a tush. Thank you for listening and every concern and worry. Thank you for every minute of every day that you are there for my mom and everyone else. You are all appreciated, every single one who contributes to the care of so many. God bless you and keep you now and always.
