Kelly Paradis

Hospice Director

Good Samaritan Society

We all get to the point in life when we have to make a decision what is important to us. Kelly’s job in hospice is to talk with families about what is important and help them decide if hospice is the right choice for their loved one. Hospice focuses on quality of life over quantity, and when someone you love is dealing with a life-limiting illness, hospice can help them enjoy the time they have left in the comforts of home, surrounded by the people, pets and things they love most, with a team of nurses, certified nursing assistants, chaplain, social worker, bereavement coordinator and volunteers coming in to help.
Plus Good Samaritan Society owns and staffs the Marley House, the only hospice in-patient facility in the quad cities, purpose-built to offer hospice respite and general in-patient care for hospice patients. If you are a family member caring for your loved one at home, the Marley House offers respite care for 5 days, every 30 days, to give you time to rest and care for yourself while your loved one gets round-the-clock nursing care at the Marley House. Medicare pays for all the services you receive while on hospice – medications, medical equipment and supplies, plus the care team who will be coming out to your home to help. After someone passes away on hospice care, our bereavement team follows up with family members, offering supportive calls, mail-outs, visits and support groups to help with grief and loss for a full year following the death.
Many times people don’t choose hospice until the last few weeks or days of their lives. When folks consider hospice earlier, we can help support their goals of care and keep them from repeat hospitalizations and help make the time they have remaining the best it can be.
Good Samaritan Society is the community’s faith-based, non-profit hospice provider offering hospice at home as well as at our Marley House in-patient hospice house. Visit to learn more or call Kelly Paradis at 928-713-2292 for more information.
