New Adult Day Care Service for Hays
The Good Samaritan Society is introducing a new senior care option in Hays: Good Samaritan Society – Adult Day Services at the Hadley Center. An open house will be from 3 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, with a ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m. The center is located at 220 E. Eighth St..
Adult day services will meet a need for people in Ellis County by providing socialization, peer support, and health and social services in a stimulating environment. These services also enable primary caregivers to work or pursue other daytime activities, and provide a cost-effective alternative to full-time nursing home care.
Services will include:
• Individual care plans
• Health screening, monitoring and education
• Assistance with personal care as needed, including whirlpool baths or shower
• Nutritious meals and snacks, including some special diets
• Social, wellness and recreational activities
• Medication administration
• Assessment and referral for psychosocial needs
• Memory care
Back in 2011, The Good Samaritan Society was invited to brainstorm ideas of ways to provide adult day service with a group of supporting Hays community members. Task force member, Susan Gamboa, MSN shared the following: “The culmination of two years of gathering data and organizing details regarding the opening of an elder care day service has, at last, yielded a very wonderful result! I am extremely pleased to recognize the Good Samaritan Society for its ongoing effort and management of the Adult Day Services which will soon be available in our community.”
The Good Samaritan Society – Adult Day Services at the Hadley Center is owned and operated by The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society. The Society is a Christian not-for-profit organization that owns and operates more than 240 long-term healthcare centers and senior living communities across the country. Its mission is to share God’s love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that “In Christ’s Love, Everyone Is Someone.”
