Faces of Care

The entire team of Morning Breeze Retirement Community & Healthcare Center – an Exceptional Living Centers Facility were thrilled to celebrate one of their residents, Jerry Hoeing’s recovery from COVID-19 last week by hosting a red carpet welcome! Recoveries like this would be impossible without the endless dedication and immense hard work of long term care heroes. The testimonial below from Jerry’s wife, Kathleen Hoeing,  underscores how frontline caregivers in long term care facilities are putting residents before themselves and their families to deliver person-centered care to our seniors.

“Jerry’s care has been tremendous! The girls go above and beyond to take really good care of him! I can’t say enough about Dr. McCullough, she called me almost every day to give me an update on him and keep me in the loop  about his care and explain it to me the way  that I could understand it.  I honestly couldn’t have asked for it to have gone any better!  Excellent Care!  My family and I are so grateful and blessed that Jerry has recovered from Covid-19!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to everyone at Morning Breeze! WE love you all!”
