Unlike a Nursing Home, Shepherd's Village provide care to persons who can no longer take care of themselves and need assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, going to the bathroom, making meals, handling their affairs, and housekeeping.
Most of our Resident's are elderly and have a number of medical issues. ALF staffs are licensed in patient care but are not medical practitioners. As such, ALFs have much lower costs than do Nursing Homes. Among area ALFs, Shepherd’s Village is among the most affordable.
