I cannot say enough good about every Nurse, Cna,Cma,housekeeping,kitchen,,,,,just everybody that works there. I couldn't have asked or received better kind loving care for my mother that just passed away last night.. I can't name names bc I'm afraid of leaving someone out but every single one of those aides and nurses do their jobs with HEART and TLC. Like all nursing homes,, short staffed or not , they do their best and they ARE THE BEDT OF RHE BEST. Thank you from my heart for the care you all gave to my mother and also Kindred hospice, they too are the BEST OF THE BEST. From my heart I give my deepest gratitude to you all. I can't express how much I appreciated every one of you??

Terrible conditions, my grandmother requested this place after she fell and broke her femur because she had a great experience post surgery 4 years ago. Management has changed since and the care she received was disgusting. The place is newly renovated and beautiful but the people who work there are unhappy and do not care about patients.

My Mother is a resident and she is treated like a well loved member of the family there.

I like that the Good Samaritan Society helps their patients to stay as social as possible, for as long as they can. My grandmother sang a lot when she was there. She also liked to help folding laundry. They gave her plenty of things she could do to keep using her hands. I feel like that truly helped her out a lot.

I love the Good Samaritan Society. I truly appreciate that safety is their number one priority. That is why I am so confident that my grandma is there. No one can get in or out of the Alzheimer's unit without signing in or out. I would highly recommend them.
