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.

(Hot Springs Village, Arkansas) – Joy comes in all shapes and sizes, like 8 pounds, 5 ounces, or 7 pounds, 6 ounces. And for a group of senior living residents at Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village, joy comes in knitting tiny baby caps for the world’s newest bundles of joy at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Hot Springs.


The women were inspired to knit baby caps for newborns when neo-natal nurse Julie Patterson mentioned the unit’s need for warm caps — to keep the babies from losing heat through their heads — to senior living lifestyle coordinator, Susan Brown. After hearing Julie’s comment, Susan presented the idea to some of the residents who sew and knit, and the group took off.


Today, Julie Patterson is co-teaching knitting skills to the group with Peggy Helmer, who donated a dignity drape to the campus. The group has donated many caps so far, but the women are happy to get together and knit as long as there is a need.


From left to right: Jean Lowenthal, June Moore, Flo LaDue, Joan Dreschsel and Sheila Stanley work on hats. At right, a new Hot Springs resident sports one of the caps.

We decorated, set up game tables, and watched as residents had fun socializing and playing different games.


We regularly host a game night like this for senior housing, but we hadn’t attempted it for skilled nursing in a while.


Residents had a fantastic time, which made us realize how much all of our residents still love this kind of event.
