Cornerstone of Care Established in 1906, Midwest Geriatrics, Inc.’s Florence Home Healthcare Center has long been a cornerstone of senior care in Omaha. Located in the heart of Florence, it is a skilled nursing community renowned for treating their residents and families with care, respect, confidence, support, and respite. While the pandemic definitely served up its challenges, Midwest Geriatrics provided quality care for residents throughout, going above and beyond to keep them happy and healthy. Now they are excited to be returning to more normal activities. “Our staff and residents started receiving the vaccinations as soon as they were available to us in January,” said Midwest Geriatrics CEO Lois Jordan. “Since then, our residents have been able to resume dining and activities together while maintaining safe distances as the CDC and CMS recommends. There are still some individuals concerned about the safety of the vaccine and the length of effectiveness, but our pharmacy team is consistently educating staff and residents and offers new information as soon as it is available.” Lois Jordan Midwest Geriatrics, Inc. One of the most exciting changes, Lois said, is that residents and family members now are able to have more frequent in-person visits, while using proper personal protective equipment (PPE). Isolation from friends and family as a result of the pandemic was hard on everyone. With the high vaccination rate, the CDC has lifted some of the restrictions, and people are feeling a sense of relief.
