I work in skilled/LTC as a nurse. I have worked with good Sam for my residents and their family’s and have always thought they were the best hospice care company. When my dad was getting tired of chemo and having declines good Sam was my first choice and they were there at first as a palliative care provider. They immediately started to make him comfortable and treating his symptoms. During the palliative care time he was still able to do his chemo treatments if he so desired. Unfortunately my fathers decline was rapid and w... read more

My husband, Charlie, was a resident in a local long term care facility for almost three years due to hip fracture and resultant complications...it was then that he was diagnosed with a new, rapidly growing pancreatic mass, presumed to be cancerous, but untreatable. He decided to return home and enjoy his remaining time with family and friends. He had me contact Good Samaritan Hospice because he had heard so many good things about them. And Good Sam was wonderful!! From day one until his passing, they were respectful, kind, a... read more
Louann, thank you so very much for your kind words and, more importantly, for inviting us into your home at such a sacred time. We are grateful that you have chosen to volunteer at Good Sam and share your time and giftedness with other patients and families.
I dont even know where to begin to say thank you to all the precious employees at Good Samaritan Hospice. Angie (mom's nurse) & Kayla (mom's CNA) were so loving, caring, and supportive during our mothers illness and passing. They treated her with love and respect until the very end. We could never say thank you enough to them, and everyone else behind the scenes, for all they have done for us during this difficult time. We will pray for you guys as you continue to help others through their difficult journeys as well.
Thank you for your kind words, Angie! We are grateful you trusted us to care for your mother.
The awesome support we received from these people was beyond awesome. My brother-in-law was in Berkshire in Vinton for several months. The long phone calls where every question was answered, even the hardest. My husband and I both would be on the phone at the same time. They did not mince words, they spoke honestly and truthfully. At this time we wanted to know the truth, how long, what do we look for at the end. We lived out of town, but they kept us up on everything, promising to keep us aware of all that was going on.

Cheryl, thank you for your kind words! We were grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your family.
Good Sam folks were stellar. They helped my aunt and family who live far away through her last days on earth with dignity and love. She was in good hands and we are grateful.
Katie, thank you for your kind words and for inviting Good Sam in to serve you and your family.
Finding out last summer that my dad needed to go on hospice care was devastating. But not as devastating as the last four months. I am thankful for the last three years with him by me. But we have not had who my dad was for a long time. We lost him twice. Once a number of years ago when we did not even know he had dementia or cancer. But we stopped getting happy Birthday or just to see how you are calls. We may have had him here by us for a time but we lost who he was. I cannot imagine a better hospice team then Good Samar... read more
Melissa, We are so sorry for the loss of your Dad. Please know we continue alongside you in the days ahead.
Amazing organization staffed by caring people.
I’m so very thankful for Good Sam!! 10 years have gone by since my sissy Dana Carol went to be with the Lord. I still have such beautiful memories of how they loved me! The Staff helped me feel like I was a part of her care! They blessed me with their care of our whole family. Most of all they blessed us as we helped sissy go home!
