Activities

Round the clock activities are scheduled daily for residents to participate in.

Residents at Good Samaritan Home have the freedom to choose how they spend their day. Our staff works to provide several daily activities that they can chose to participate in. Each neighborhood offers residents its own monthly calendar of events. Neighborhoods also organize several events throughout the year that family members are invited to come participate in, including cookouts and holiday celebrations. We publish the weekly activities schedule in the Patter, our weekly newsletter that is distributed to residents throughout the building.

Please check out our monthly activities calendar for Sheltering Grove only, listed below. If you have any questions about activities in other neighborhoods during the COVID-19 visitor restrictions, please call Activities at (217) 223-8717 x4227, or check out our Facebook page for photos and updates.
