About Good Shepherd

Good Shepherd offers a faith-based home with resident centered, compassionate care at three levels of nursing care: personal, intermediate and skilled. Being situated in the mountains of eastern Kentucky, there are green vistas out each resident’s window. Our approach to elderly care, facilities and services make us one of the highest quality nursing homes in Kentucky.

Our belief is that older adults, who have spent their lives working and caring for others, deserve to enjoy their later years to the greatest extent possible. This motivates the staff of Good Shepherd Community Nursing Center to work hard to provide a home-like environment and the same lifestyle opportunities that residents previously enjoyed. We know that when residents feel at home within a community of their peers they have a greater interest in life.
