Care/Services

At the Home of the Good Shepherd we offer our residents superior quality, professional care in a warm and inviting assisted living environment

Personal Care
Personal Care

We put the personal care and comfort of our residents above all else. The personal care plan reflects an individual resident’s needs and routines prior to admission, and is based on discussions with the resident, family members, physicians, and other healthcare providers involved in the wellbeing of the resident.

Enhanced Assisted Living
Enhanced Assisted Living

The Home of the Good Shepard Enhanced Assisted Living allows residents to age in place, which contributes significantly to quality of life. We provide care for residents who are chronically chairfast, require the assistance of another person to walk, who are dependent on medical equipment, or have chronic unmanaged incontinence. Enhanced care is also less expensive than skilled care, when paid for privately.

Memory Care
Memory Care

Choosing a memory loss facility is never easy. Along with it comes the realization that your loved one, your parent, spouse, sibling or friend, can no longer safely and comfortably live at home.

At The Home of the Good Shepherd Memory Care Residence, we do everything we can to provide understanding and support. We invite you to come tour our facility and to meet with us to answer your questions. We’re not only committed to serving those with memory loss, but also to provide help to families with thorough information.
