Administrator Corrine White (from left), Chaplain Jim Burns, Cheryl Jackson, and quilt designer Peggy Helmer show the finished dignity drape to staff in the chapel of Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village.

(Hot Springs, Arkansas) – Cheryl Jackson’s dream was simple: Show residents who have died at Good Samaritan Society - Hot Springs Village the same dignity their living friends and neighbors continue to receive at the center.

 

“It always felt to me as though we were ‘sneaking’ them out of the building when they left us,” Cheryl says. “Quietly, with only a sheet – or worse yet, a body bag – covering them.”

 

Cheryl felt the way in which death was handled at the center didn’t match its approach to care.

 

At Hot Springs Village, residents are members of a large family. When a member of that family dies, Cheryl says, that person deserves as much honor and respect after death as they did when they were alive.

 

Cheryl says emptiness filled her when she thought about the center’s approach to death. She wanted to do something more and arrived at the idea of a “dignity drape.”

(Hot Springs Village, Arkansas) – At Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village, residents are surrounded by the love and compassion of staff members. Top-quality healthcare is nestled in a beautiful, natural setting.

 

But these are not the only reasons people more and more people are calling our campus home.

 

They come here because of our mission: to share God’s love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that In Christ’s Love, Everyone Is Someone.

 

Here, well-being is upheld for the body, mind
and soul.

 

The Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village Endowment Fund will ensure that our campus will continue to have an environment where people are loved, valued and at peace.

 

 

 

Invest in our mission and ministry: Make a gift to the endowment


The endowment fund is permanent. We invest gifts to endowment and spend only part of the interest they earn. We return the rest to the fund so that the next year — and every year after that — there is even more to use for resident well-being. Click here to contact Cindy Calhoun, director of resource development, to learn more about how endowments work.

 

The goal of the fund is simple: to ensure that God’s love will continue to be shared in word and deed … for all time.

There is no need that is greater than to feel more loved, valued and at peace. Your gift to endowment — either today or through your will — can make an everlasting difference.

 

All gifts are welcome, large, small and in between.

 

To learn more about how you can be remembered as someone who shared Gods love forever, consult your financial adviser and call Cindy Calhoun at (501) 915-2128.

Gloria Lyda (third from left), a Services@Home caregiver, poses with friends and family.

 

(Hot Springs Village, Arkansas) – Gloria Lyda received welcome news this spring. She discovered her rare, slowly progressing form of leukemia slid into remission.

 

Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (Ph+CML) is a cancer of the blood. Gloria is one of only about 5,000 Americans with the disease.

 

Because it’s a chronic illness, Gloria will always need medication. The annual cost is estimated at $90,000. 

 

It’s a devastating one-two punch. But the Services@Home caregiver at Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village has chosen to persevere.

 

“We all have a milestone in our lives. Being diagnosed with Ph+CML is a big one,” Gloria says, “but it isn’t the last one.”

 

Gloria says she isn’t a superhero. She still leans on her husband, Earl; son Kelly; and his wife, Sara.
