Differences in Levels of Care for Seniors in Quincy ILGood Samaritan Home of Quincy is a Life Plan Community. This means that we provide independent living, assisted living, nursing care, and more, all on the same campus.

Independent Living

Independent Living is for individuals or couples who are totally independent, but no longer want to maintain their own home. It is the perfect option for the active senior looking to downsize, while maintaining self-sufficiency. They all offer the privacy and independence of having your own apartment, but we take care of all of the inside and outside maintenance. At Good Samaritan, cottages vary in size, style and price. Monthly rent for the one or two bedroom units includes: all maintenance and utilities (except phone, internet, and cable). For more information and pictures on our cottages, check out our page on our Independent Living Cottages.

Assisted Living & Shelter Care

Assisted Living and Shelter Care cater to individuals who may need a little extra help from day to day, but do not need nursing services. These neighborhoods allow residents to remain as self-sufficient as possible, with the security of knowing 24-hour staff is just a call away. Our Assisted Living program offers tiers of services with rates adjusted accordingly. Assistance levels include services like housekeeping, medication administration, and help getting dressed. Service plans can be adjusted as needs changed. Assisted Living can be paid for privately or with long-term care insurance.

In Shelter Care, residents can get assistance with medication and bathing, however residents must be able to dress themselves and get to the main dining room for meals and activities. There is not a nurse in the Shelter Care office 24 hours a day, however there is call light in each room with 24-hour emergency response. Shelter Care can be paid for privately, with long-term care insurance, or with Medicaid. For more information and pictures on these two areas, check out our page on Assisted Living and Shelter Care.

Intermediate and Skilled Nursing Care

Intermediate and Skilled Nursing Care provides 24-hour medical care with input from the resident, family, physician, and staff. Intermediate care is for residents who cannot live alone, and need 24-hour supervision and assistance with daily activities. Skilled care is for residents who need 24-hour assistance and also need a skilled service, such as a feeding tube, IV services, wound packing, or rapidly changing care. Both of these levels of nursing care can be paid for privately, with long-term care insurance, or with Medicaid. For more information, check out our page on Intermediate and Skilled Nursing Care.

Special Care or Memory Care

Special Care or Memory Care is specifically for individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other forms of memory loss. While we offer Memory Care in all our nursing neighborhoods, we also offer our state-certified Special Care Unit. This is the only state-certified Special Care Unit in the area. Our team is specially trained to meet the individual needs of those with moderate to severe memory loss. This level of care can be paid for privately, with long-term care insurance, or with Medicaid. For more information, check out our our page on Special Care.

Short-term Rehabilitation

Short-term rehabilitation supports those needing a little extra care after a hospital stay. This service offers highly skilled levels of nursing and rehab services following at least a three night inpatient hospital stay. This level of care is primarily paid for by Medicare. If you have a Medicare Advantage Replacement Plan, preauthorization is required from your insurance company. We also participate in a program that allows a waiver to the three night hospital stay through Medicare called Next Gen. Talk to your healthcare provider to see if you qualify. Some of the services we can provide include: daily skilled rehabilitative physical, occupational, or speech therapy needed after a major surgery such as a hip replacement/fracture, knee replacement, or heart surgery; daily IV services; daily treated wound care or wound packing; a new feeding tube; a new colostomy; a new nephrostomy; and ileostomy services.
