What Sets Us Apart?

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.

It is reassuring to know that as well as living in your private suite, you have the comfort knowing whenever you need a little extra care, our staff is ready and waiting. Our caring and dedicated staff are on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ready to assist with everything from dressing, bathing, oral care, general hygiene as well as delivering meals for those that may not be feeling well.

 Assisted Living

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 well-being of the resident.

 Enhanced Assisted Living

The Home of the Good Shepard Enhanced Assisted Living allows residents to age in place, which contributes significantly to the 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

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.

Care Management

Our case manager works hand in hand with our nurses as well as community providers, to manage the medical, social, physical and mental needs of each individual resident to ensure a positive quality of life and maintain a level of independence. The Case Manager is a primary source of communication with the resident’s Primary Care Physician in regard to the medical well-being of the resident.
