Assisted Living

The Assisted Living Program at Good Shepherd provides a helping hand when you need it.  Our program is designed to deliver a package of services to you in your own apartment on either campus.  We know you want to be as independent as possible, and we want to help you achieve that goal.  A personal assessment will help determine other customized service needs such as medication assistance and other personal cares.

Is there a waiting list?
Market rate (or private pay): We typically do have waiting lists, however, there is no cost and no risk to put a name on any of our lists. Simply fill out an application. Once your name comes to the top of the list and you are offered and accept an apartment, there is a small application fee charged to process the application, conduct a criminal background check and any landlord verifications.

Subsidized: We typically do have waiting lists. Simply fill out an application to put your name on the list. Once your name comes to the top of the list and you are offered and accept an apartment, you complete a final income verification process prior to accepting the apartment.
