From May 21-23, surveyors with the health department conducted an annual survey of Elders' Home to ensure its compliance with all federal and state regulations. The home received a deficiency free survey.

Cal Anderson, Elders' Home administrator, found out through Aging Services of Minnesota that only 4.6 percent of nursing homes in Minnesota received a deficiency free survey.

Anderson credits the dedication and experience of Elders' Home's long-term department heads and employees for the excellent survey results. He also stated that the deficiency free survey, along with a Medicare 5-star rating, are two objective indicators of the home's quality care.
