Our staff is trained in the Habilitation approach to dementia care using the “Caring for People with Alzheimer’s Disease” program created by the Alzheimer’s Association/ MANH Chapter.
We have long been aware of the profound and unique needs of people facing the final stage of life – their own, or that of a loved one. Throughout the years, members of the community have come to see us as an important resource as they navigate this transition. At the heart of our mission is enhancing the quality of remaining life, so that those in the final stage of life can live as fully, independently, and comfortably as possible. Our programs are reflective of that mission.
“We would never have been able to care for my husband at home without this level and quality of care. I could never overstate the excellent services and support we received from every member of your team.” – Family Member
Support longtime Board Member, Stephen Campbell, in his 3rd Boston Marathon to support Good Shepherd. While April 20th may seem like a long way off with all this snow, spring is just around the corner and there is no time like the present to support Stephen in his run for Good Shepherd. Stephen’s goal is to raise $7500 for Good Shepherd. Below is a link to Stephen’s Crowdrise page. You can donate there, on our website , or by mailing a check to Good Shepherd. Thank you for your support!
On Thursday, October 30th, Good Shepherd hosted its Second Annual Good Shepherd Institute Dinner. Featured speaker Dr. Atul Gawande addressed a SOLD OUT audience with his bold visions and compassionate approach.
On June 14th for the third year in a row, Good Shepherd participated in the 2014 Boston PRIDE Parade. Thank you to all who attended. We are PROUD to care for all members of our community.

Ida Shtulman laughs from behind the wacky, oversized glasses. Her white hair is in a neat bob. Always fashionable, she wears a new red blouse and black sweater for the occasion, although the clothes swallow her now-small frame. There is a clown nearby, a cake ablaze with candles, and sparkling juice. In these photos of her 90th birthday party in March, Ida is smiling as she is hugged by family members.
