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.
4th Annual PBA Golf Tourney Fun For All!

The 4th Annual Penfield Business Association Golf Tournament to benefit Shepherd Home was held at Penfield Country Club on Monday, July 14 and was another “hole in one”! Blue skies, comfortable temperatures, and a perfectly manicured course greeted the 106 golfers who enjoyed a day of their favorite sport, lots of laughs and high spirits.

Many hands make light work. We are so grateful to Chairperson, Tracy Dovi and to the PBA committee: Theresa Brigandi, Jeff Chapman, Paul Dwyer, Kate Haywood, Guy Taddeo, Lancye Douglas, M.J. Francati and Amy Steklof.

Family First Credit Union was again the lead sponsor and Jeff Chapman was the lunch sponsor. A delicious dinner served by the hospitable staff at PCC was sponsored by John and Karen Cipro of Don’s Original. Many generous donors from other Penfield businesses were flag and tee sponsors. There were also exciting raffle items donated by Penfield Businesses and other Shepherd Home supporters.

A special word of gratitude to Lancye Douglas who coordinated many enthusiastic volunteers who spent the day registering the foursomes, selling raffle tickets and being on call for whatever was needed by the golfers.

Thank you, Mike Smith, and your PCC staff for all that you did to make this a day to remember!

“You matter because you are you.
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.”

Founder of the Modern Hospice Movement
