Cottage Meal Deliveries Discontinued Permanently
Due to the rise in positive COVID-19 cases in Adams County, Good Samaritan Home has decided to permanently discontinue meal deliveries to cottagers. Our top priority is keeping our residents, both internal and in cottages, and employees safe. We appreciate everyone that participated in our meal delivery service while it was available.

Videos from Families
We have put a request out to families and friends to send us home videos with messages. These videos are being played on Channel 3.

Cottagers– If you would like to send in a video with a message to our internal residents, please record the video and send it to
