Good Samaritan Society Receives $8.15 Million Grant
The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust awarded an $8.15 million grant to the Good Samaritan Society — the largest grant in the GSS history. The grant will be used to deliver sensor technology and telehealth services to help rural seniors age in place.
The project, called LivingWell@Home, will help about 1,600 seniors in five states — North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska.
“With the grant from the Helmsley Trust, the Good Samaritan Society continues to shape how senior care should be provided in this country,” says David J. Horazdovsky, president and chief executive officer for the Good Samaritan Society. “Our commitment is to implement new and innovative ways in which seniors can live well at home, and at the same time offer family members peace of mind knowing that their loved one is being cared for.”
