Shepherd Home

                    Our Mission

                        Rooted in faith and love, we provide comfort 
                      and compassionate care to members of our 
                    community with a terminal illness, in a way
                  that cherishes the dignity of each individual and 
               meets their physical, emotional and spiritual 
           needs. We provide support to families and friends 
      and foster community acceptance that dying is an
integral part of living.
Shepherd Home is a two bedroom home in Penfield, NY that operates under the hospice philosophy, providing 24-hour care for the terminally ill in a residential setting. Shepherd Home offers physical, emotional and spiritual support to those facing the prospect of death. We also provide hospitality and support to family members and friends as well as bereavement counseling and community education.
Fun Euchre Bunco Night Oct. 12

We invite you, your family and friends to Shepherd Home's Euchre/Bunco Night on Thursday, October 12th at Penfield Country Club, 1784 Jackson Road.

The night will start at 5:30 p.m. with a cash bar and buffet dinner of cheese, crackers, fruit, tossed salad, pizza, wings etc. Play begins at 6:30 p.m.

For those who do not play Euchre we will offer the exciting game of Bunco. 

Bunco is a social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill (there are no decisions to be made), scoring and a simple set of rules.

Please come and enjoy the fun. We will have a Chinese auction with great prizes, 50/50, trivia and much more! This is not a Euchre tournament, but a fun night of play and socializing!

No need to bring a partner -- we will provide a partner if needed. Euchre foursomes can rotate tables or simply play at the same table all night. Winners of each game will receive tickets to place in the Chinese auction items. The more wins the more chances to win!

Tickets are $25 per person and it is pre-purchase only -- you cannot buy your ticket at the door. If you would like to pre-purchase tickets for this event, please call Tracy at 381-0890 or email her at [email protected]

You matter to the last moment of your life.
We'll do all we can, not only to help you
die peacefully, but to LIVE until you die.”
