Long Term Care involves a variety of services designed to meet a resident’s health and personal needs (Body, Mind, Spirit) for an extended length of time. Our Home provides services for those that require 24-hour supervision and care. The most common services provided are nursing care and personal care, also called activities of daily living (ADL’s). These activities include bathing, dressing, grooming, using the toilet, eating and moving around.

Our activity staff enrich our residents’ lives by having them up and moving through a variety of engaging activities. Nutrition is very important, and our dietary department provides a wide selection of delicious meals to all Residents. Our full-time chaplain provides spiritual care and guidance for our residents and their families.

As a long term care facility we accept private pay, Medicare, Medicaid and many Advantage Plan Coverages for payment.

Our therapists will help you recover in a gentle and positive atmosphere for a safe return home. Rehabilitation in senior care is our specialty. Our on-site therapy program provides comprehensive physical, occupational and speech therapy without leaving the comfort of our Home.

Short Term Rehabilitation refers to a range of medical care services for new admissions who are transitioning out of a hospital setting but still require medical attention. Short Term Rehabilitation care does involve medication management and help with performing tasks such as bathing and dressing, but it also includes skilled nursing care by medical professionals and treatment plans designed to help patients recover, rehabilitate, and restore functioning.

Population(s) Served

The Good Samaritan Home has created an innovative community that matches their unique care of residents with dementia and other memory losses.

Familiar activities such as: baking, cooking, music program, and pet care are incorporated into the daily activity programming. This innovative community concept allows choice of movement and activities to reduce agitation. Our community provides residents with controlled flexibility.

Our staff is committed to helping those with memory loss maintain their independence for as long as possible. Our programs are customized for each resident to provide compassionate care and meaningful interaction that provide our residents with daily moments of success.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Though we take skilled nursing facilities for granted today, there were no such options in the 1950s for those who were “elderly and infirmed.” However, Dr. Henry Weiss, a local physician and member of Bethel United Church of Christ, had a vision for a high standard of care for those in need, regardless of their ability to pay. His vision still guides us today.

For Residents
As a Continuing Care Retirement Community, we offer healthcare and housing catered to the needs of our residents. They come to us with various medical, physical, cognitive, and psychological conditions. We provide a caring community that expresses Christian love and concern. Our person-centered approach offers a life of continuing meaning and purpose for each individual that calls Good Samaritan “home.”

We offer:
• Long Term Nursing Care
• Short Term Rehabilitation
• Memory & Dementia Care
• Independent Living
• Enrichment Activities and Events
• Excellent Food with Quality Nutrition
• Spiritual Care

For Employees
Working at the Good Samaritan Home goes far beyond just having a job. It is a ministry. Each day our staff have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of another person. We envision the Home as the best senior care provider in southwest Indiana. Employees at the Home share that same passion and enthusiasm for making an impact in someone’s life. We support, encourage, and guide staff along their career path to help them achieve their goals.

We believe that work/life balance is essential. We offer several different employment options, such as full-time, part-time, weekend-only, and PRN, to best meet the individual needs of our employees. The Good Samaritan Home team provides a family-like atmosphere by sharing Christian love and concern for our residents and employees.

The Good Samaritan Home (affectionately, The Home) gives our residents opportunities to live life to their fullest potential. The Home is an industry leader among not-for-profit senior living communities and memory care. The largest facility in the area, we serve 150 older adults in southwestern Indiana. From the admission of our first residents in 1962, the Home has a rich tradition of commitment to seniors. Our residents have choices in their lifestyle options and activities, providing the utmost fulfillment in their daily living.

What started out as a small nursing care facility has grown to become so much more. We offer Residential or Independent Living Apartments, Three Memory Care Neighborhoods (Pathway’s I & Pathway’s II All Male Unit and Pathway’s Pavilion), Long-Term Care nursing services for the more critically ill residents, and Intermediate Care. We provide Skilled Nursing Services to our residents as well as to those in the community who have had a 3-day hospital stay and are eligible to use their Medicare Part A benefits for a rehab stay.

As everyone knows, socialization is a very important aspect of our quality of life. The Good Samaritan Home has a socially-oriented Activity Department. All residents and their families are invited and encouraged to participate in our activity program. There are a variety of programs such as Ceramics and Painting, Resident Council, Exercise Programs, Religious Services, Planned Facility Outings, Music Entertainment, Bingo, and more.

The Good Samaritan Home benefits from the outstanding capacity of three significant resources: people, building infrastructure, and finances. Our people include an engaged and informed Board of Directors, innovative leadership from our executive team, a highly skilled and compassionate workforce, and dedicated volunteers. The Home also enjoys the benefits of having buildings and equipment that enhance our core mission. Residents are happy with the delivery of our services, and employees are pleased with their work environment. Finally, The Home enjoys a solid financial position, creditworthiness, and a long-term outlook that allows us to improve to ensure we meet our goals continuously.

The Good Samaritan Home has been providing a caring community through an atmosphere of Christian love and concern since its first residents entered on January 15, 1962. Currently, we offer 122 skilled nursing beds, 76 memory/dementia care beds, and 18 independent living apartments. From our humble beginnings, we now count 160 employees on our team, along with a Good Samaritan Home Auxiliary volunteer corps.

Recent accomplishments include the addition of an all-male memory care unit with 16 beds, the first of its kind in the Midwestern United States. We have received the 2021 Readers’ Choice award from the Evansville Courier & Press, demonstrating our reputation throughout the community as the best senior living facility in the region. Our recent state survey found four minimal concerns, two of them administrative, with no danger of harm to any of our residents.

The senior population in the United Sates is expected to climb to 83,000,000 by 2050. Approximately 37,000,000 baby boomers will turn 65 over the next decade. 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day over the next 15 years, fueling the aging population explosion. To meet the needs of this mass census explosion, healthcare providers must continue to adapt to meet changing demands. The Good Samaritan Home is committed to our mission of a caring community and our vision of being a home where residents experience 5-star care and a high quality of life.
