Located on a 20 acre site, in the northwest part of Concordia, the Lutheran Good Shepherd Home, Lutheran Nursing Home and Good Shepherd Villages I and II provide services and accommodations to geriatric and disabled citizens. It is one of the largest continuum of care campuses in rural Missouri. The home is licensed for four distinct levels of care and is Medicare and Medicaid approved.
The Lutheran Good Shepherd Home complex provides a variety of services to its residents. An Activities Director, a Social Services Director and a Registered Dietician are all on staff. The home employs Rehab Care to provide physical, occupational and speech therapy by certified personnel. Within our facility we have two chapels, one in the Skilled Nursing Area and one in the Assisted Living – Retirement Area. The Chapels are used by all denominations or congregations as represented by the residents who reside within the facility. Worship services are held numerous times each week. Additionally, we have two dining rooms and a beauty/barber shop within the complex.
Our volunteer program has been in existence since the start of this home, in 1964. In the 50 + year history of the volunteer program, the total number of volunteers and volunteens (combined) is well above 200,000 hours of service. Some volunteers include: The Red Cross, a volunteer ombudsman (serving as an advocate for residents) and we have a “Comfort Dog” that visits. There are many other volunteers, individuals, organizations, Pastors and church members who also give their time to enhance the lives of our residents.
The Good Shepherd Home Auxiliary has also been serving residents for over 50 years, and they raise funds for projects such as furniture, bulletin boards, lamps and drapes.
