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.
Welcome
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.

2014 Wings of Light Luminaria



Honor and remember all the angels in your life, past and present, and help light up a long winter’s night.

Wings of Light luminaries are $10 each and will be personalized with the name of your loved one. They may be purchased online from now until December 12.

The luminaries will be lit and on display in front of Shepherd Home on Monday, December 15, 2014, from 5-7:30 pm. In previous years, the flickering glow from more than 400 luminaries could be seen lining a pathway from Shepherd Home’s front door all the way to Five Mile Line Drive. It’s a sight to behold and a wonderful opportunity for contemplation and remembrance.

Please feel free to join us that evening to enjoy the luminaries, hot cocoa, cookies and fellowship.

All proceeds will benefit the residents and caring work of Penfield’s own comfort care home.

Click here to order luminaries or call Shepherd Home at 381-0890.

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.”
