How do you know which senior housing or service options to choose from?
Take our interactive quiz
You want more from life than maintenance-free living and the comfort of amenities. You know life is about more than that — It’s about being surrounded by people who care about you. It’s about having the freedom to make your own choices. It’s about pursuing your passions, discovering new interests and living a fulfilling lifestyle.
Living in a senior community can offer you all of this, and more.
Our senior communities provide convenient and comfortable housing options that offer some level of basic support services.
Services may include:
emergency response systems
These services may be included in the monthly fee or on an a la carte basis.
The Good Samaritan Society encourages residents to stay active.
This means being physically, mentally and spiritually engaged. By staying active and living with a purpose, you can enjoy life for what it is—not just for what it was.
Friends and neighbors who lift you up. Compassionate caregivers who help you enjoy life on your terms. A community that encourages you to live life to the fullest.
That’s what being a part of the Good Samaritan Society is all about.
Our compassionate staff is dedicated to helping you enjoy life on your terms. You and your loved ones can rest easy knowing that, as part of a Good Samaritan Society community, there will always be a caring option for you.
Time to focus on what really matters.
You’ve explored all of your options. You’re nearly ready to make your choice. But you’re still wondering if there’s something more you should consider.
An individual who may benefit from living in a housing with services community may:
no longer be interested in or able in keeping up with lawn care, snow removal or other home maintenance tasks;
desire socialization and the companionship of having close friends and neighbors nearby;
require or desire assistance with general housekeeping;
not like to cook or need a nutritionally-balanced meal on a daily basis;
not be able to drive or prefer to ride instead of drive;
desire added security or feel uncomfortable living alone;
enjoy participating in spiritual, recreational, entertainment or wellness programming; or
want the security and peace of mind of being part of a community in which other housing or healthcare options are available, if needed.
What other amenities exist?
All locations are different, but many senior housing with services structures are multi-unit apartment buildings that often include common areas such as community dining and kitchen space, chapels, multi-purpose rooms, libraries, laundry facilities and wellness or fitness areas. These common areas and shared spaces help provide a sense of community for residents and a space for social interaction.
In communities where other types of building types exist (such as twinhomes or duplexes), the common areas of the multi-unit apartment building may be shared with residents living in other areas of the campus or members of the greater local community.
In the end, it’s about more than just amenities, services or cost. In fact, in some ways it’s not necessarily what we do that sets us apart — it’s why we do it.
We believe in helping people discover a deeper, more meaningful value in life. A value that comes from living with passion and purpose. To meet that need, we’ve created a community that helps you feel loved, appreciated and at peace. So you have the support to pursue your passions — and the freedom to live a life with purpose.
We’re here to help you understand your options, so you can make the decision that’s right for you. We support whichever choice you make. Our goal is to help you focus on what really matters —finding a place where you can feel at home.
Assisted living communities are licensed healthcare providers that offer residents housing, personal assistance, supportive services, and custom healthcare plans.
Residents live in apartments or residential units and don’t require around-the-clock nursing supervision. Staff members are accessible 24 hours a day.

Home is not simply where we live. It’s who we are. A link to years gone by. And where we hope to spend the years to come.
Home health care services from the Good Samaritan Society include skilled nursing, hospice care and help with household and personal care, such as grocery shopping, meal preparation and light housekeeping. We aim to serve individuals in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their own homes and communities. Click the links below to learn if home health is right for you and your family.
Adult day service programs offer daytime respite services that enable primary caregivers to work, run errands or have a break from their caregiving duties.
Participants can socialize and receive health services in a stimulating and supportive environment.

These short-term programs are designed to help people maintain independence, strength and function.
Adult day services provide a cost-effective alternative to full-time nursing home care.
The Cottage group home in Boise, Idaho, provides a community-based living alternative for adults with developmental delay, mental illness, traumatic brain injury or other disabilities.
The homelike environment helps residents experience life in a family atmosphere, with a caring and supportive foundation provided by trained and loving staff.
Programs help residents focus on retaining, maintaining and learning daily living skills. Services are available for those who need assistance with daily living, including bathing or showering, selection of clothing, dressing, grooming, hygiene and medication administration.
Planned activities promote independence and mobility, including trips to community centers, shopping, and social outings.
We understand each person is an individual with unique needs and preferences. We also encourage those we serve to continue challenging themselves and pursue active lifestyles.
At the Good Samaritan Society, we want to help you with the complex decisions of healthcare. We are partners in caring, and we will help you to understand the facts while providing emotional and spiritual support, as well. Click the links below for 5 things to consider when choosing a nursing home or rehabilitation therapy services.
1. You should feel respected and valued.
Selecting a rehabilitation/skilled care location is a difficult decision that often happens after a stressful event such as a fall, a surgery or a rapid decline in health. The community you choose should treat your loved one as an individual, someone with a unique story. You should feel confident that staff members have experience helping people in similar situations and will treat you with compassion and patience.
2. You are not alone.
3. Your questions matter.
As a highly technical profession, healthcare and its terminology, regulations and payment options can be confusing. Look for a community that listens to you and addresses your concerns. No one should expect you to fully comprehend all aspects of rehabilitation/skilled care.
4. Home can be anywhere you feel loved and cared for.
It is difficult to leave a place full of memories, one that provided comfort and safety. The rehabilitation/skilled care location you choose should make you feel like you’re at home. Staff members should encourage your loved one to bring pictures and other comforts that will help accomplish that.
5. You may need help. And that’s OK.
Your loved one may be dealing with the loss of independence and physical abilities. You may be dealing with guilt and feelings of inadequacy. Look for a place that helps your loved one live wholly and healthfully, but be open to the possibility of other services. Staff members should reassure you that your loved one will receive the best care possible — care that could not be provided at home.
