Donations to PA OH Gives will benefit St. Paul's Good Samaritan Fund for benevolent care. Benevolent care is provided to residents who exhaust their financial resources and cannot afford to pay for the full cost of their care. The Good Samaritan Fund ensures that no resident ever has to leave St. Paul’s because of financial reasons.
Many older adults discover that their savings are not adequate for their care needs in their retirement years. In fact, 59% of the residents at St. Paul’s in skilled nursing care and 10% of those living in personal care cannot afford to pay the full cost of their care. In 2022, St. Paul's provided $5.2 million in unfunded and benevolent care to residents in need.
For more than 150 years, St. Paul’s has been a lifeline for those who need it the most - first for orphaned children and today for older adults in need of care, regardless of their financial resources. These residents are able to continue to receive the same quality care and services at St. Paul’s because of the support of generous donors.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
St. Paul’s was significantly impacted by inflation in 2022 with food and other supply costs increasing dramatically. Payroll expenses also went up due to increasing wages to remain competitive and to retain and recruit staff. Although Medicaid raised their reimbursement rate for skilled nursing care for the first time in 10 years, it is still insufficient to cover what it costs St. Paul's to provide the care. This is why fundraising to sustain the Good Samaritan Fund for benevolent care is so critical.
