Good Samaritan Home Cottages are a very popular place to live, so it is prudent to make application well in advance of need. A simple application places a person's name on file, and establishes an application date for all services of the Good Samaritan Home.
Application packets may be request by calling or stopping by the Home.
All cottages are rented on the basis of application date. Waiting time for a one or two bedroom cottage with no garage or carport can be as short as one year from application date, but more often takes three to five years. Cottages with garages and carports have significantly longer waiting lists.
