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
On April 21, 2014, longtime Good Shepherd Board member Stephen Campbell will be running the Boston Marathon for the second year in a row to raise funds for Good Shepherd Community Care. “We are grateful to the City of Newton and thrilled to have received this number to participate in the Boston Marathon,” states Tim Boon, Good Shepherd’s CEO. “It is such a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about our organization and to raise funds.”
Proceeds from the Marathon will help bridge the gap between insurance reimbursement and the cost of the skilled compassionate care provided by Good Shepherd Community Care. Campbell’s goal is to raise $5,000. To support Stephen Campbell and Good Shepherd Community Care in this endeavor, please visit here.

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.
