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 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. (Due to COVID-19, we are not currently allowing inside visitors or hosting family activities.)
