We have over 50 years of experience caring for our residents.
A Samaritan traveling the road came upon him. When he saw the man’s condition, his heart went out to him. He gave him first aid, cleaning and bandaging his wounds. Then he lifted him onto his donkey, led him to an inn, and made him comfortable. In the morning he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper, and said, “Take good care of him. And if it costs any more, I’ll pay you back when I return.”
These words of Jesus served to call members of United Church of Christ (UCC) congregations in the Tristate area to build a facility, which would be founded on Christian principles and dedicated to loving care of those who could no longer care for themselves.
After eight years of dedication and hard-work on the part of those churches, the first four residents came to live at the Home on January 15, 1962.
Since then, the Home has grown to offer 122 skilled nursing beds, 18 residential apartments, and 76 beds across three unique Memory Care communities. The mission of The Good Samaritan Home is to provide a caring community through an atmosphere of Christian love and concern.
The Good Samaritan Home is owned by the UCC churches of the Evansville Tri-State Association, the Lincolnland Association, and two congregations of the Wabash Valley Association. The Home is governed by a Board of Directors and is a member of the Indiana/Kentucky Conference of the United Church of Christ, and The Council of Health and Human Service Ministries of The United Church of Christ.
