I am a friend or relative of a resident
I was fairly impressed with the facility it seemed that the staff were qualified and caring. The only downfall was that this was a nursing home and my friend who was a resident there was only 22 at the time she was there. The rehab unit of the facility was very goal focused and it truly seemed like the staff were caring about meeting and reaching goals to achieve discharge.

I visited this facility
In my experience the Good Shepherd community was a nice place. The facilities were clean very clean. I have visited other nursing homes in the past and have seen some very unhappy patients. Depressed, some just sitting in the hallways begging to be taken out of there. The residents here seemed content and well taken care of. The staff seemed nice and genuinely compassionate. The "campus" as they call it is fairly large in my opinion, and located on the outskirts of town. Nice calm neighborhood. I do believe they have separate facilities on campus for varying degrees of patient health, such as memory units, etc. I like the fact that they did not keep all the patients together, as I can only imagine how stressful having let's say, a dementia patient as a neighbor would be. That being said, I believe having specified units for these patients provides them with the best care possible also. They are cared for by staff who are specialized in the needs of such a patients. I didn't get a full tour on my visit, these are just some of the things I had picked up on. Leaving me with the impression that although this is not the newest facility I've seen it is definitely a good one. Feels somewhat homey, I guess as homey as a medical facility could. And as said the staff seem genuine, and I noticed a few patient/staff interactions that lead me to believe there's actual compassionate human to human interaction. Not just worker to work.
