Many living in long-term care facilities have spent the last year in isolation. But as more and more people are vaccinated, families can reconnect and see their loved ones in person.
After a year of missed holidays and milestones, Nannette Mogensen is celebrating her 84th birthday with her family.
Mogensen is now fully vaccinated and lives in Touchmark, a senior living facility on Spokane’s South Hill. On Sunday, her three children and two of her granddaughters surprised her.
“Happy Birthday, mother, I love you,” says Shelly Christensen, Mogensen’s daughter.
