At Good Samaritan Living Center, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality nursing facility care for seniors. We strive to meet and exceed their needs, as well as the needs of their families. Our well-trained and compassionate staff work hard to make our residents feel at home, whether it is through the services we provide, the interaction we have, or the time we spend with each individual.

Good Samaritan Living Center is a not-for-profit, Christian facility founded by the ministers and laity of the 3rd District of the Bogue Chitto Missionary Baptist Association in 1987.  Open to all denominations, the employees of this 84 bed facility are committed to the total care of our residents not just their physical wellbeing, but their emotional and spiritual needs as well.

We fully believe in the healing power of modern medicine, but we also believe in the therapeutic value of a gentle touch, a kind word and a prayer.  At Good Samaritan Living Center we provide professional healthcare in a warm, loving and clean environment.

Good Samaritan is located in beautiful Franklinton, Louisiana, a small town of just under 4,000 people.  A peaceful town with a slow pace, mild climate and ultra low crime rate, Franklinton is the host of the famous Washington Parish Free Fair, one of the largest and longest running county fairs in the United States.   

Located over 140 miles North of the mouth of the Mississippi River, Franklinton is far enough inland to be considered safe from most hurricanes.  As our address (on Hilltop Avenue) indicates, we are situated on the top of a hill over 25 feet above the rest of the community so flooding has never been an issue. 

We are close enough to the Gulf to enjoy beautiful subtropical weather, but far enough inland to be safe from almost anything the Gulf throws our way.
