LUDINGTON – John Pomeroy of Ludington is one of many patients throughout the region who receive medical care in their home from the Memorial Medical Center Home Care staff. His home care nurse is Debbie Swanson, RN.

Swanson has helped him in visits over several months and says she hopes he’ll be ready to “graduate” from home care after a medical procedure scheduled for later this month.

Pomeroy retired from full time work after 25 years in the sales department at FloraCraft, but still works part-time for the Ludington company.  He has maintained his work via computer, even while receiving home health care, but hopes to return to the office as soon as he’s officially discharged from home care.

He credits Swanson with helping him through several complications from his medical treatments, including side effects from antibiotics he needed to take.

“She’s done a great job,” said Pomeroy. “Debbie has not only helped improve my physical health, but also my emotional comfort in dealing with the medical issues and recuperation.”
