These are the words our residents use to describe the Home of the Good Shepherd. We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of our residents and promoting independence and individuality. A guiding principle for all that the Home of the Good Shepherd staff do for our residents is joy in service. For our kind, knowledgeable, and supportive staff, the highest ideals of compassion, dignity, and trust are of the utmost concern when interacting with our residents, families, and visitors.
We are offering Virtual Tours. Please contact one of our Homes today for your Virtual Tour.
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.
At the Home of the Good Shepherd we offer our residents superior quality, professional care in a warm and inviting assisted living environment. Our size allows us to provide each of our residents with individualized services to meet their specific needs while encouraging them to remain active and involved with their lives and in the Community. Our Enhanced care allows residents to “age in place” as we provide Skilled Nursing tasks and Nursing Assessments in our private home-like environment.
The Home of the Good Shepherd, licensed by the NYS Department of Health, has served the community of Saratoga Springs since 1870,
earning a proud reputation for providing the highest level of skilled, attentive care.

My 84-year old mother never imagined that she would be so happy at Home of the Good Shepherd! She loves the staff and enjoys the company of fellow residents. She can’t believe how much there is to do and she loves not having to cook or clean anymore! Thank you for creating such a wonderful place.
Linda, Daughter of Resident
It was a difficult decision to face moving to an Assisted Living residence. I researched several places before deciding on Home of the Good Shepherd. All I can say is that I wished I’d made the decision a year sooner. I love everything about this place! The quality of my life has improved tenfold.
I never realized how isolated my life had been when I lived in my own house. I have made so many wonderful friends and have so much to do, I feel like a kid at summer camp. Every day is interesting and exciting. And the staff is good folks. I couldn’t be happier.
The care provided at the Home of the Good Shepard has been nothing less than stellar. The staff is compassionate and helpful at all times. My family and I are very grateful to have a wonderful place like the Good Shepard to call home for my mother.
