SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Staff at Good Samaritan Society in Sioux Falls are working hard to keep their residents safe.
The pandemic has taken a toll on people everywhere, and for those with family members living in nursing homes, the distance wasn’t easy.
“If it hadn’t been for the technology that dad knows how to use, it would have been very tough. We were able to use FaceTime, and the communication was as good as it could be given the circumstances,” Patti Guthrie said.
But today, Patti Guthrie is able to sit in person with her dad, Gordon Carlson, who is 100 year’s old, putting him at a high risk of complications if contracting COVID. That’s why knowing that staff at the assisted living center are fully vaccinated means so much.
