The Home of the Good Shepherd
Various locations homeofthegoodshepherd.com
The Home of the Good Shepherd assisted living facility offers residents superior, professional care in a warm home-like environment. Our size allows us to treat each resident as an individual, meeting his/her own needs and activity. With our licensure, we can provide a continuum of care while residents age in place with either our Enhanced or Memory Care services. Every resident has a personal care plan and individualized service plan. Delicious meals are served three times a day in our dining room. Therapeutic diets as ordered by the physician are also available. We offer a full calendar of in-house and outside activities.
