We understand that you have countless questions about the options available to you or a loved one. You may be wondering what the differences in levels of care and which is right for you or your loved one. You don’t have to make the decision on your own. Our team is ready to talk to you about your individual circumstances and help you find the right senior living option for you.
Senior Living Options
Good Samaritan Home is a Life Plan Community or Continuing Care Retirement Community. This means that we provide independent living, assisted living, skilled and intermediate nursing care, short-term rehabilitation, and specialized dementia care, all within one campus. Learn more about each of these levels of care below.
Not only do we offer more services than any facility in our area, but we are also there for you if needs change or increase. Good Samaritan Home provides a smooth transition to higher levels of personalized care, without having to search for a new facility down the road.
Independent Living is for individuals or couples who are totally independent, but no longer want to maintain their own home. It is the perfect option for the active senior looking to downsize while maintaining self-sufficiency. They all offer the privacy and independence of having your own condo or duplex, but we take care of all of the inside and outside maintenance. At Good Samaritan, cottages vary in size, style, and price. Monthly rent for one or two bedroom units includes all maintenance and utilities (except phone, internet, and cable).
Assisted Living & Shelter Care
Assisted Living and Shelter Care cater to individuals who may need a little extra help from day to day but do not need nursing services. These neighborhoods allow residents to remain as self-sufficient as possible, with the security of knowing our 24-hour staff is just a call away. Our Assisted Living program offers tiers of services with rates adjusted accordingly. Assistance levels include services like housekeeping, medication administration, and help to get dressed. Service plans can be adjusted as needs changed. Assisted Living can be paid for privately or with long-term care insurance.
In Shelter Care, residents can get assistance with medication and bathing, but residents must be able to dress themselves and get to the main dining room for meals and activities. There is not a nurse in the Shelter Care office 24 hours a day, however, there is call light in each room with 24-hour emergency response. Shelter Care can be paid for privately, with long-term care insurance, or with Medicaid.
Intermediate and Skilled Nursing Care
Intermediate and Skilled Nursing Care provides 24-hour medical care with input from the resident, family, physician, and staff. Intermediate care is for residents who cannot live alone, and need 24-hour supervision and assistance with daily activities. Skilled care is for residents who need 24-hour assistance and also need a skilled service, such as a feeding tube, IV services, wound packing, or rapidly changing care. Both of these levels of nursing care can be paid for privately, with long-term care insurance, or with Medicaid.
Dementia and Memory Care
Dementia and Memory Care is specifically for individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other forms of memory loss. While we offer Memory Care in all our nursing neighborhoods, we also offer our state-certified Special Care Unit. This is the only state-certified Special Care Unit in the area. Our team is specially trained to meet the individual needs of those with moderate to severe memory loss. This level of care can be paid for privately, with long-term care insurance, or with Medicaid.
Short-term rehabilitation supports those needing a little extra care after a hospital stay. This service offers highly skilled levels of nursing and rehab services following at least a three-night inpatient hospital stay. This level of care is primarily paid for by Medicare. If you have a Medicare Advantage Replacement Plan, preauthorization is required from your insurance company. We also participate in a program that allows a waiver to the three-night hospital stay through Medicare called Next Gen. Talk to your healthcare provider to see if you qualify.
