People of all ages diagnosed with a variety of conditions can benefit from the Good Samaritan Society’s home health services. Clients receive high-quality medical care in the comfort of their home, avoiding an extended hospital stay or moving to a rehab center.

Some of the specialized services include:

  • Medication management
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapies
  • Rehabilitation
  • Wound care

In-home medical services offer treatments for a wide range of conditions. A few common ones include:

Heart disease or heart failure

In-home services can help clients establish a healthy lifestyle if they have heart disease or have had a heart attack. Providers can teach clients techniques for managing heart disease and other heart conditions.


Our team offers physical, occupational and speech therapy services to help those who have suffered a stroke. This can help clients regain their ability to communicate wants and needs with loved ones and get back to doing everyday tasks.

Respiratory diseases like COPD, asthma and emphysema

In-home services can provide consistent monitoring of pulse, warning signs, and blood oxygen levels. Providers can monitor those needing daily supplemental oxygen. They can also help manage inhaled medications.


For those fighting a cancer diagnosis, in-home services can help manage and treat side effects, wounds and secondary infections in the comfort of the client’s home.

Alzheimer’s, dementia or confusion

Diseases that affect the mind can be some of the most stressful to deal with for family members and their loved ones. In-home services can help improve the client’s quality of life through physical, occupational and speech therapies, helping them increase strength and mobility as well as improve cognitive abilities.

Home health from the Good Samaritan Society offers solutions to recover faster and more fully in the comfort of your home.
