Grand Meadows Glen is a 12-unit Congregate Housing unit that follows a prototypical design created by The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society.

Since the intended use is to provide housing for the area seniors, the building has two different unit styles.

Built on an average sized site adjacent to the existing nursing facility, it offers 2, two-bedroom units and 10, one-bedroom units. Each unit contains a full bath which is fully accessible along with a shower, a full kitchen with cabinets, over the range microwave/hood, refrigerator, stove and pantry. The kitchens adjoin the living rooms which contain a bay window for a spacious feel. The bedrooms contain large closets and a window. All windows are operable.

Units are cooled by individual units and they are heated by hot water heat. Unit baths are exhausted by individual fans. Common areas are heated by hot water heat and cooled by a central HVAC unit. The building is fully protected by an automatic sprinkler system.

This unit along with others is designed to provide a warm and friendly place to enjoy companionship while receiving moderate supportive services. This is ideal for a person who likes more company, and who can benefit from some assistance.

This Congregate Community has a large common dining room with outdoor patio accessibility, kitchen and a laundry facility. The services and social areas in the residence are the main difference between congregate living and senior living. The services usually include one or more meals every day, 2 hours of house keeping each month, accessible call system for emergency services and scheduled transportation.

The Good Samaritan Society began serving the community in the early 1920's with $2,000 and a mission to help others in need. The first center opened in a six-room home in Arthur, North Dakota in 1923. The Society later grew from providing services to physically and mentally handicap persons to providing services to elders and others with special needs.

Today the Society operates facilities in 25 states, employs 21,000 staff members and serves more than 28,000 residents.
