Hello, Past and Future Clients!
We hope this email finds you healthy and safe. We would like you to know that Samaritan Home Care is conducting business throughout the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis. You can rest assured that we have gone above and beyond regarding recommended procedures and guidelines to protect our clients. We use contactless thermometers each day to check all staff, and sanitizer, wipes, gloves, and masks are provided and used.
We realize that the population we care for consists of the elderly as well as others who have health issues or compromised immune systems, which make them the most vulnerable during this unprecedented COVID-19 time and our protective procedures are stringent. (See our helpful link to the CDC below for helpful info on COVID-19.)
Samaritan Home Care offers home care services that specifically meet the health and personal needs of our clients. Our aim is to improve their overall well-being and quality of life.

Are You Eligible for a Veterans’ Benefit?

Here is a list of the requirements for this benefit:
1. You must be over age 65.
2. You must be a veteran, a spouse of a living veteran, or a surviving spouse of a veteran.*
3. The veteran must have served as an “Active Military” status for 90 days during an approved time of war— WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War.
4. The veteran must have had an honorable discharge.
5. The Veteran or surviving spouse meets income requirements.*
6. The Veteran, spouse of a living Veteran, or surviving spouse of a Veteran needs assistance with bathing, grooming, meal preparation, etc. on a regular basis in order to stay independent in their home or chosen place of residence.*
* Spouses of living veterans and surviving spouses of veterans can qualify for this benefit, yet only 5% of them are currently taking advantage of it.
We salute all veterans and their surviving spouses. Allow us to reciprocate the good you have done for our country by taking care of your personal needs. We offer home care services that will specifically meet your unique health and personal care requirements.
