Sally Hodgson, Director of Activities writes…

Good Samaritan Home is concerned about your safety. Every precaution is taken to ensure resident safety at the Home and on outings. Behind the scenes, much happens before, during and after outings.

Prior to going to a restaurant, we visit and assess the environmental hazards. Not all establishments have exactly the same handicapped accessibility. Other issues, such as raised door thresholds, can prevent safe entry. The layout of the place we are visiting as well as the parking lot can impact the decision on whether to go there. Entrances, exits, floor surfaces, and restrooms are examined.

Weather probably has the largest impact on outings. Residents are transported in heated/cooled vehicles, but are at risk of the elements if that vehicle should break down in traffic.

Prior to leaving, nursing staff must be notified of who is going. Outings are posted at the receptionist desk on Monday mornings (when they come out in The Patter). Residents must be signed up in order to go on the outing. Outings are filled in a first come, first served basis. The nature of the outing and the needs of those attending directly influence the number of staff members that accompany residents.

We gladly do all of this work so those that go have a good time. It is a privilege and a pleasure. We look forward to outings as much as you do. If you haven’t signed up for an outing with us, try it, you might like it! For a list of future outings, please check out our activities calendar!
