Published on: March 20, 2023
Watertown, NY – Two projects to improve safety and quality-of-life for Keep Home residents are complete thanks to funding from Samaritan Medical Center Foundation of Northern New York.
Beth Fipps, VP, Foundation and Community Services, said, “Samaritan Foundation is proud to provide upgraded equipment and needed items for residents at the Keep Home. Funds were raised by way of our annual golf tournament in 2022 toward this and other projects for our long term care residents.”
Large smart TVs were purchased and installed to provide communal activities for residents. Samaritan’s Information Systems department helped to ensure installation and activation of online services for each new system. A variety of television show and movie options are now available to residents in the activities room.
Additionally, a new security feature was installed at the main entry point for the Keep Home. Thanks to Foundation funds, residents and staff can now rest easy knowing there is improved accountability of visitors to the facility and for the safety of our residents. This new system went live the week of February 20.
