Manning Native Named Director Of Senior Life Solutions At Manning Regional Healthcare Center

A Manning native, and long-time area resident, Janet Schroeder-Brus, RN, has accepted the position of Program Director for Senior Life Solutions at Manning Regional Healthcare Center (MRHC). This is an intensive outpatient group counseling program for those over the age of 65 who struggle with depression and anxiety, frequently related to aging. Participants meet three times a week in a supportive, encouraging group setting. Schroeder-Brus brings more than 30 years of nursing experience to MRHC, with an extensive background in home health and hospice. She says she was drawn to this position because of her passion for working with seniors. “They have so much to say and such an incredible history,” Schroeder-Brus says. “It’s nice to just sit back, talk to them and really listen.” Chief Nursing Officer, Linn Block, says they are thrilled to welcome Schroeder-Brus to the team. “Janet’s substantial experience and compassion when working with seniors makes her an excellent choice to guide this exceptional and much-needed program locally.” Schroeder-Brus and her husband, Kevin, have two grown children, Colin and Emily, who graduated from the IKM-Manning Community School District in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
