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.
Good Shepherd believes in the importance of mutual respect and acceptance and values diversity in our patients, families and caregivers, employees, volunteers, community, and partner organizations. We are committed to these values and honor the dignity of each individual through the care, support and education we provide.
“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

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.
