Families with members suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s have a new place to seek care, thanks to Home of the Good Shepherd.
On July 31, the organization opened a new memory care community, located at the organization’s building at 390 Church St., Saratoga Springs.
The non-profit organization, affiliated with the Bethesda Episcopal Church in Saratoga Springs, has been in operation since 1870, provides care for elderly residents, and has communities in Saratoga, Wilton, Malta and Moreau.
While they offer traditional nursing home services, including housekeeping, meal preparation, medication management, assistance with daily living, Home of the Good Shepherd boasts a more comfortable, home-like environment, while still providing a continuum of care that allows residents to “age in place.”
Along with sunlit, private suites, residents also enjoy a safe, landscaped outdoor courtyard, as well as a highly trained and caring staff, dedicated to celebrating the life of each individual in the community.
