    My wife was taking care of her mother with dementia. It was becoming to much and my wife was no longer medically equipped to handle it. We were referred to Good Samaritan by a close friend who worked there. The sign up process was seamless, no wait list and no out of pocket costs. The lady working the office was awesome and they took my mother in laws medicaid and SS which covered the cost. When we moved her in the place was spotless and the staff was very friendly and on the ball. She is getting better care than we could provide. She loves it there and could not be happier. She adjusted in only a week and would rather be there than here. Thank you to all the staff!!

    Think twice about putting your loved here in Spokane. In independent living you're put on the list and it's up and down, first you could be number 10 for example and a week later 15! When I first put my loved one on the list Tamara told me 6-8 months. Early this morning I was told by Steven (general manager) it's 2-3 years! My family was totally lied too. Something else I encountered that Sabrina was totally cross with me when I asked her where my loved one was on the list because Tamara encouraged me to call once a month. I thought this was a religious community and why would you want a cross receptionist?? Two weeks ago Tamara called me and told me it was getting close and what apartment would my loved one like! And, she was number 3 or 4! Now she says she didn't say that! I would not not pick this information out of the sky folks! My sister called corporate because Tamara would not return phones calls. So, Steven called us to get information. He totally talked over us and stuck up for Tamara and Sabrina! Whatever! If I was corporate I would be doing some investigation and job training in this community. This is real sad situation. I remind you this is a religious community and they act like this???? I told Steven that and he said, they get that thrown in their face all the time! That's a wake up call friends! My loved one is now going to another facility where she will be loved on and not be looked down at. Have a blessed day everyone!

    My dad just passed away there yesterday after arriving a few days prior. We didnt know how long he would be there or what to expect and could not have asked for a more caring and supportive staff to help us through the process. The nurses there were so kind and helpful in explaining to us what to expect and how to help Dad in whatever way we could. It was a very difficult time for our family and they really made a difference in helping us deal with his death. Mickie and Meagan were especially loving and thoughtful, but the other staff were also much appreciated.

    Attended a surprise party at the event space and found it to be very well appointed. The space suited our needs, had a wonderful view, and the kitchen was great for our needs. The space is tidy and well lit too. The historic photos of Spokane around the building were an unexpected treat and became quite an ice breaker for our group.

    I trusted them with the love of my life. My father. They failed me. He was only there for a few months and died from pneumonia. MRSA and STAPH in the lungs. He was so over medicated to treat behaviors of dementia he couldn't even cough or swallow. He tried to swallow the food they fed him while laying flat on his back and they forced another bite into his mouth. I witnessed it and have pictures. I missed a few days being ill myself and I was called when he was near death and when I asked why he was not sent to the ER I was told oh, he is a DNR. I said well his DNR means not to restart his heart if he is found without a heartbeat, not to withhold medical care. He died a horrific death at the hospital after I requested the transfer to seek medical care. The worst mistake of my life was moving him there. It looks good in the beginning but if you adore your loved one. Please reconsider.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
