Skilled Nursing

"I absolutely love everything about Good Shepherd. The entire staff is wonderful, always smiling and taking the time to talk. I love the therapy department. I like helping out in the Friendship Room making goodies for all to enjoy. The food is excellent, and I very much enjoy the exercise class in the morning. If I had to pick the one thing I loved most about Good Shepherd, it would have to be when I get to visit with the dogs. I love that the most. My hope is to be able to stay here the rest of my life." Nick Woodke.
