Miss Duke, Christina Pratt and Donna Hoffmann are excited about the donation of a vision machine to Christina’s school.

 

(Hot Springs Village, Arkansas) – Although Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village is a senior care organization, staff and residents are passionate about helping children, too. When campus residents learned that the Jessieville School was in need of a reading aid machine, they stepped in to help.

 

“Many of our residents were in the education field as teachers or administrators,” says Donna Fox, director of senior housing. “To them, education is crucial to our children.”

 

In addition, many of the staff at Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village grew up, lived or worked in Jessieville, which is about 14 miles away from the Good Society location.

 

The Hot Springs Village campus had an unused vision technology machine in the library; when the owner learned of the school’s need for it, she asked that it be donated to the school.

 

 

“Christina was so thrilled to get the machine she did a little dance for the staff members who delivered it.”

Miss Duke, an instructor at the school, has been using the machine with a new student, Christina Pratt.

 

“Christina has low vision and low hearing, and she wears a hearing aid, so learning is quite challenging for Christina,” says Miss Duke.

 

Christina attends Miss Duke’s classroom three times a day to get help with her assignments, and other students have access to the machine as needed.

 

Now, Christina is able to use the larger screen, instead of relying on the iPad they used before. In addition, Christina was so thrilled to get the machine she did a little dance for the staff members who delivered it.

 

“We have many staff who were raised in Jessieville and went to Jessieville school,” says Donna Hoffmann, director of marketing at Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village. “Schools have limited budgets, and are often unable to purchase expensive items like the vision machine. We’re happy to improve the education experience and give back to the community with this gift.”

Administrator Corinne 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.”
