Dear Good Samaritan Home
family and friends,
As I reflect back on almost
29 years of service to The Good Samaritan Home of Quincy, I’m proud to have
been a part of a very special legacy that is incorporated in our Mission
Statement “Superior Christian service in a charitable community.”
So many changes have occurred
that have enhanced our ability to meet our mission. From the early creation of
an employee handbook and employee benefit plan, to the many expansions,
renovations, addition of services, to striving daily to provide person-centered
care with personalized care plans, buffet-styled dining and many unique and
special activity programs for our residents. We’ve been able to modernize
through computerization, technology for safety, security and resident
satisfaction. We expanded the services our residents can receive from entering
into Medicare Part A and B, to providing Assisted Living and Short-term Rehab.
Together we’ve created Mission, Vision and Value statements, created our Long-Term
Strategic Plan and continue to revise and update it. We’ve strived to secure
the financial security of the Home through the establishment and funding of our
Foundation. I can think of so much more
that I’m proud to say that I’ve been privileged to be a part of the Home’s ability
to adapt, reposition and visualize the potential of the future for those we
The Home is very much a part
of my extended family and I’ve poured all I have: my faith, heart and soul into
the privilege I’ve had to partner alongside our Board of Directors, exceptional
staff, precious residents and their families and our volunteers. I have been
truly blessed by God to be in this place, in this time.
In recent months, I’ve
reflected on my desires, wishes, intentions and plans for the future. I’m
deeply saddened to announce to you my pending resignation. I have agreed to
continue to serve until the Board has selected a replacement or until September
30th, the end of our fiscal year.
It is my most sincere hope
and prayer that all who are a part of the very special place will honor, support
and respect this most difficult decision and will continue to move forward with
renewed energy, enthusiasm and expectations. I believe in a new and bright
The Home will always hold a
very special place in my heart. The relationships I’ve developed with the
residents and their families, my gifted Supervisory team and our dedicated and
compassionate staff will always be my most treasured memories.
May God Bless You All!
Michael P. Duffy
