Connecting with residents
Residents are feeling love from family, friends and community members even though they can’t visit them in person.
It’s coming in the form of notes and photos through the Good Samaritan Society’s online Send-a-Note service.
The service is free and makes it possible for people to send a message and photos to residents through a simple form on the Society’s website.
With visitor restrictions in place at all Good Samaritan Society locations across the country, the Send-a-Note service is providing a needed means of communication.
“When our residents get a message, they’re excited,” says Jennifer Batesel, marketing coordinator at Good Samaritan Society – Mountain Home in Arkansas. “Activity staff are delivering the notes right away and they get so excited to give a message. Residents really love the pictures.”
The number of notes coming in to Good Samaritan Society – Northwood Retirement Community in Jasper, Indiana, has increased dramatically because of the visitor restrictions.
