Reviews of Good Shepherd Health Center

I visited this facility
The Good Shepard Nursing home had areas where I felt like it was more of a hospital feeling, and other area's felt more like a home. The area I was looking to place a family member seemed more like a hospital with no carpeting, which seemed a concern for slippers (seemed it would be easier to slip and fall). The commons area was nice; it had a fish tank and televisions which made it feel more homely, which was a good feeling. The staff seemed really nice and made me feel welcome and made sure all of my questions were answered. I did express some concern about the flooring, and the staff did inform me that they were going to be doing some remodeling and putting carpet in as well. With that information, I did go back for another visit, and the staff was very helpful and good at answering questions again (they even remembered who I was). They put carpet in, so the concern of falling was not an issue anymore, and they did paint the walls so they were no longer white and no longer felt like a hospital. The remodel tied the whole building together and made it feel more like a home, and I am now thinking about putting my grandparents there because staff proved to be interested and seemed very caring in what now feels like a nice, home-like environment.
