Beverly Mital, after creating and building Guardian Family Care from a card table in her basement is now handing over the reins to The Good Samaritan Society. She believes that they will provide the same excellent, compassionate services that she has provided over the past 19 years. Ms. Mital never expected to grow from 3 to almost 200 employees when she first envisioned providing home care. We have expanded our services way beyond the Quad Cities by establishing 5 offices in the following locations Bettendorf, Muscatine, Clinton, Moline and Geneseo. Ms. Mital attributes her success to the training she provides her employees, the professionalism of the staff and her very hands on style of management.
The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society will be taking ownership on December 1, 2013. The new agency will be called Good Samaritan Society – Guardian Family Care. Good Samaritan has more than 240 facilities nationwide, including the Quad-City region. In addition to home care they also offer skilled nursing, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitative services, assisted living, senior living, affordable housing, home health, hospice and memory care services throughout Iowa. The acquisition of Guardian Family Care will complement the strong service offerings and reputation already provided in the Quad Cities area by the Good Samaritan Society.
The Good Samaritan Society pledges that the same great service that clients received from Guardian Family Care will continue and even be strengthened by the Good Samaritan Society’s 90-year history of providing excellent services and care.
The Good Samaritan Society welcomes Guardian Family Care, Inc.’s clients as it continues to create environments where people are loved, valued and at peace. The Society’s mission is to share God’s love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that “In Christ’s Love, Everyone Is Someone.” It looks forward to getting to know Guardian’s current clients, getting to know their stories and sharing the Society’s commitment to enhancing well-being — body, mind and soul.
“The Good Samaritan Society is excited for this opportunity to expand our services in the Quad Cities area. Guardian has done excellent work, and we feel privileged to be able to continue offering the quality services this agency has been providing for nearly 20 years. We are also excited to meet and serve many new clients in the region,” said Michella Sybesma, Executive Manager of Home and Community Based Services Network 32.
