The Good Samaritan Home opened its doors in 1962 to provide for the long term
health care needs of the elderly. Since then, it has grown to its present
128 nursing home beds, 18 residential apartments, and 54 bed Alzheimer's
community (Pathways). An additional 30 bed Medicare unit, The Pavilion,
provides short term skilled care. The mission of The Good Samaritan Home is to
provide a caring community through an atmosphere of Christian love and concern.
We are Medicare and Medicaid approved.
The Good Samaritan Home is licensed by the Indiana Department of Health and
provides services to residents in a modern, home-like
atmosphere. These services include: on-site physical, occupational,
and speech therapy; full-time Chaplain services; skilled care; residential
care; 24-hour nursing care, daily activities, and social services; all meal
requirements as ordered by your personal physician; full assistance with all
personal care needs; daily medication assistance/administration.
The Good Samaritan Home is owned by Lincolnland, Wabash Valley, and
Evansville Tri-State Associations of the United Church of Christ. The home is
governed by a Board of Directors and is a member of the Indiana/Kentucky
Conference of the United Church of Christ, and The Council of Health and Human
Service Ministries of The United Church of Christ.
Many of the services provided to the residents in the nursing center are also
provided to the eighteen residents of The Good Samaritan Home Residential
Apartments. Here, individuals are able to maintain a high degree of
independence in their living arrangements, while being able to receive
assistance with medication and monitoring of their nutritional needs.
