Vetter Senior Living 45th Anniversary Video

Jack and Eldora Vetter began what is now known as Vetter Senior Living in 1975 with the belief that elderly people deserve dignity in life.  Forty-five years later, what began as the couple’s personal mission has grown to include more than 30 award-winning senior-care facilities that are home to 2,500 seniors who are cared for by 3,800 compassionate team members. Based in Elkhorn, VSL is recognized as a national leader in providing outstanding Quality of Life and Quality of Care for seniors. 

Vetter facilities in the Omaha area include Brookestone Meadows, Brookestone Village, and Papillion Manor. The Brookestone and Papillion Manor names became synonymous with industry-leading rehabilitation services, allowing people to successfully transition from the hospital back to their home.  In addition, their long-term care services are rated by CMS as five-star.

Vetter Senior Living is passionate about becoming a world class organization that is transforming the view of senior living. “Other organizations do what we do,” VSL President Glenn Van Ekeren said, “so we are irrepressibly passionate about doing what we do like no one else does it.”  

VSL’s mission of “Dignity in Life” is the cornerstone for everything they do and is grounded in this simple practice:  Treat Everyone As The Most Important Person in Your Life. It is also the foundation for making VSL a place team members love to be.

Since 2008, Vetter Health Services has been recognized locally as a Best Place to Work in Omaha. Nationally, VSL has been ranked in the top 20 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. Vetter Senior Living facilities were also recently recognized nationally for creating an outstanding experience for customers and team members. National Research Corporation, based on customer and team member satisfaction surveys, ranked Vetter Senior Living No. 1 for Team Member satisfaction and No. 4 for  Customer Satisfaction among senior care centers nationwide.  

Beyond Omaha, Vetter facilities can be found in communities in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming, and Missouri. Support for all facilities comes from the home office, Vetter Health Services, also located in Elkhorn. The skilled team members provide management and clinical support with a passion for excellence.
