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.
Great time had by all at 10th Anniversary Black & White Ball

Over 170 guests attended the 10th annual Shepherd Home Black and White Ball at the beautiful Penfield Country Club. Our hosts for the evening were Norma and Andrea Holland. Dee Alexander served as our honorary chair. Attendees were offered the chance to win a trip to the Gideon Putnam Resort as well a chance to win a bottle of wine at the cork pull room. After a sit down dinner and live auction guests were invited to a "coffee house" with live entertainment, cordials and a chocolate fountain.

“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.”
