For Good Samaritan Society – De Smet, skilled nursing is about more than providing care 24 hours a day. It’s about giving hope and helping overcome fear. It’s about being there to listen. It’s relating to people as people, not as patients. It’s cherishing life for the remarkable journey it has been, and that is still to come. All things that, as the nation’s largest not-for-profit provider of senior care and services, we’ve had a lot of experience doing.
