Caring for Seniors

Adult Day Services Program & Lending Library

One of our top needs identified through our Fairfield County assessment is caring for seniors.



Lending Library

To provide care for seniors who need support, we maintain a Lending Library, which is a stock of medical equipment (such as wheelchairs and walkers) that can be lent out to those who need to borrow equipment.





The Adult Day Services Program at The Samaritan Center provides an affordable alternative to nursing home or assisted living placement for those adults who require assistance and supervision with daily activities. The goal of the center is to “Change how you live, not where you live.” Our mission is to provide a safe and protective environment for adults and elderly who need socialization, supervision and assistance during the day.

Personal funding is often available through Medicare, Passport, Veterans Affairs and the United Way of Fairfield County. Since the Center is the only one of its kind in the area, it is open to residents of Fairfield County, and also and surrounding counties of Hocking and Perry County.



  • A full activity schedule offers social interaction, exercise, crafts, games, musical guests, educational presentations, gardening, special field trips and much more.
  • We offer an individual plan of care that addresses personal strengths, needs and interests.  Lunch, as well as morning and afternoon snacks, are provided, and provisions can be made for special dietary needs.
  • Program hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. with flexible hours available to meet your needs.
  • Transportation can be provided.



  • Helps adults and seniors remain in their homes by delaying placement in an expensive permanent care facility by more than a year, on average.
  • Allows caregivers to maintain gainful employment while their loved one receives the care and support needed to provide peace of mind.
  • Provides a solution to 24-hour care and supervision needs.
  • Helps adults and seniors remain active and independent.
  • Provides opportunities for meaningful activities and socialization.
  • Promotes better health and wellbeing.

  • A full-time licensed social worker who can help make caregiving easier, including guidance on helpful community resources.
  • A nurse who provides medication administration, general health monitoring and first aid.
  • An activities director and aides who coordinate activities, events, field trips and more – all with safety, fun and participation as the priority!
  • Licensed transport specialists who provide safe arrival and departure.
  • Qualified volunteers who partner with our staff to ensure the comfort and happiness of each and every person in their care.
