Описание

Jack and Eldora Vetter began Vetter Health Services (VHS) in 1975 with the belief that elderly people deserve dignity in life. Forty years later, what began as the couple's personal mission has grown to include more than 30 award-winning senior-care facilities home to 2,200 residents and patients who are cared for by 3,500 team members. Based in Elkhorn, Nebraska, VHS is recognized as a national leader in providing safe, comfortable, and happy senior living centers. Each facility is built around the individual needs of residents and the community; every aspect of care and operation is shaped by the VHS mission, vision, and values. Support and expertise are always available from administrators and team members who share Jack and Eldora Vetter's heart for service and passion for excellence. Together, they are changing the view of long-term care for senior citizens.

INTRODUCTION

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.

—Jeremiah 1:5

When Jack Vetter signed the agreement to buy his first nursing home, he had no way of knowing he was taking the first step in a journey that would change the view of long-term care for senior citizens.

This book traces the first 40 years of that journey in pictures and in words. Stories from Jack and Eldora Vetter’s youth lay the foundation for what would become their life’s work, providing quality care for senior citizens—from the 1975 purchase of Heritage of Fairbury, located in Fairbury, Nebraska, to more than 30 Vetter Health Services senior care centers and more than 3,500 VHS team members whose commitment to service is redefining the meaning of nursing home.

This project chronicles the growth of a company that puts the happiness and comfort of its residents first, and describes how the enduring VHS mission of providing dignity in life strives to provide everything residents of VHS facilities need—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—to feel respected, fulfilled, useful, healthy, and secure.

As Jack continually reminds the VHS team, I’m never satisfied with status quo. The best isn’t good enough. We want to be better than the best. We strive to be world class. Every minute of every day we have the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to revitalize people’s view of long-term care. . . . We understand that other people do what we do. We just want to do it in a way that no one else is doing.

JACK AND ELDORA VETTER, 2004. Jack and Eldora Vetter’s desire to serve others sparked the Vetter Health Services mission of dignity in life.

THE VETTER FAMILY, 1975. Before the VHS mission came to be, two young people believed that strong faith and hard work would guide them to God’s purpose for their lives. Before the Vetter way made a difference in the lives of thousands of residents and team members, relationships, experiences, and events illuminated Jack and Eldora’s path, one step at a time. They are pictured here with their children (from left to right) Denny, Todd, and Vicki.

PILLARS TO

LIGHT THE WAY

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

—Proverbs 3:5–6

VIRGLE VETTER RANCH, EARLY 1950S. Jack and Eldora believe that no experience is ever wasted—all are part of God’s plan. The early years helped prepare them for the future. For Jack, this meant learning the meaning of an honest day’s work on his father’s ranch. No one would have guessed that these humble beginnings were the perfect foundation for enriching thousands of lives. This ranch is still owned by the Vetter family.

STARGAZING. Jack’s family lived on several farmsteads when he was growing up. His first home was in Riverview, Nebraska, in the Niobrara River Valley. The Vetter family lived in a log house without electricity or running water. At night, if he positioned himself just right, Jack could lie in bed and see the stars through a gap in the wood. Here, Jack and younger sister Getha show off homemade stilts.
