News & Views from Campus: October 30th – November 5th

With the seasons changing and cooling weather, we look forward to many fun, exciting holidays and events. However, you don’t want to overlook Medicare Open Enrollment during this time, as it could affect you for the entire year of 2023.

Each year from October 15 to December 7, Medicare allows members to compare Part D Prescription plans and switch to different companies or plans at no penalty. It is a good idea to compare prescription plans to determine the plan that gives you “the biggest bang for your buck.” Things to consider include: monthly premium, deductibles, copays for medicines, pharmacy network status, among others. You also need to consider how you want to pay for the insurance pla

n; you may choose to have the plan billed to you monthly or have the amount deducted from your Social Security benefit.

Good Samaritan is happy to help its residents and cottagers with researching and enrolling in part D plans. Residents/families are invited to schedule an appointment with our Accounting staff during the Open Enrollment period. Please call Aaron Mast to schedule an appointment or for more information. NOTE: Cottagers will need to bring a list of medicines (or bottles) and their red, white, and blue Medicare card.

Cottager Community Center

-Thanksgiving carry-in dinner on 11/24 at noon! Make your preliminary reservation by signing the reservation page at the cottage. We hope to see you there!

Prayer Request & Scripture


John 7:16-17

“So Jesus answered them, “My Teaching is not mine, but Gods, Him who sent me. If any person would truly desire to do His Will, he or she will come to realize whether my teaching is from God or if I am declaring things I made up on my own.”


Pray a prayer of praise and thanksgiving to GOD, OUR CREATOR, OUR SAVIOR, OUR PROTECTOR, OUR HELPER, OUR STRENGTH, OUR COMFORTER, OUR COUNSELOR, OUR TREASURE, OUR FRIEND. Praise God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ The Messiah), and God the Holy Spirit.
