Skilled Care in a Home-like Environment
Established in 1965 as a non-profit nursing home, the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home features a Primary Nursing Care program, a consistent assignment-of-care approach to resident care that provides permanent staff assignments to assure trust and positive relationships between residents, families, and caregivers. This primary nursing care approach promotes increased knowledge of the needs of each resident in their care group, better care plan utilization, and ensured continuity of care.
The Good Shepherd Nursing Home has adopted a “Culture Change” approach to long-term care. Residents maintain their preferred waking and bedtime schedules, and the five-meal dietary plan allows them to eat meals when and where they wish, with snacks available 24 hours a day.

The Good Shepherd Home hosts 58 spacious private rooms and six (6) double rooms. Private room rates are very reasonable–among the lowest in the area.
Local 4th-grade children are regular visitors to their “Adopted Grandparents” at Good Shepherd. An on-site Child Care Center promotes inter-generational interaction and enhances daily activities for residents throughout the facility.
In-house therapy services for residents include physical therapy, speech and language pathology, and occupational therapy, all of which are also available as outpatient services.
Residents enjoy many exciting activities that focus on the mental, physical and social well-being of the residents.
Weekly church services are conducted by area ministers at the Good Shepherd Campus Chapel to meet residents’ and families’ spiritual needs.
