Home health care services from the Good Samaritan Society include skilled care, hospice care and help with household and personal care, such as grocery shopping, meal preparation and light housekeeping.
COVID-19 has made these services even more important. If you need rehab therapy or assistance getting groceries or other essentials, but don’t feel safe leaving your home, consider our services.
We follow CDC guidelines for personal protective equipment when providing care to keep our clients and caregivers safe.
Julie Smith from the Good Samaritan Society explains ways we can help you stay safe at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Who benefits: Home health services are beneficial to those with underlying health conditions and more seniors on Medicare are eligible.
Safety: Our top priority during the pandemic is keeping clients and caregivers safe while providing needed services.
Help for families: At-risk clients are vulnerable during the pandemic. We offer a wide variety of services you can receive in your own home – basic care, skilled care and end of life services.
COVID-19 eligibility: Changes in federal and state waivers are allowing more seniors on Medicare to become eligible for home health care.
Caring staff: Our home health caregivers have a heart for their clients and it shows in the relationships they form.
Social connection: Isolation is a serious risk for seniors during the pandemic. Home health caregivers play a valuable role in providing a social connection while helping limit exposure to COVID-19.
