While much is still not known about COVID-19, one of the things
medical experts agree on is that the elderly and those with
serious pre-existing medical conditions such as hypertension
and diabetes are at an increased risk for a poor outcome.
Because people living in nursing homes and assisted living
facilities often fall into those categories, the challenge of keeping
the residents safe during a pandemic is a heavy burden.
Bob Siebel, CEO of Wisconsin lllinois Senior Housing Inc., which
owns East Troy Manor, Geneva Lake Manor and Holton Manor in Elkhorn along with I 6 other facilities in Wisconsin and Illinois,
said it's a daily struggle to safeguard the health and safety
of the residents and staff at the facilities.
