A Little Bit About Shepherd of Gurnee

We all want to belong somewhere, have the support of those around us, have someone to sit with us and hold our hands or comfort us when we need it.

Shepherd homes are unique in that we have one caregiver for every five residents to be able to provide each resident with the personalized care and attention they need and deserve. The caregivers in Shepherd Premier Senior Living Homes all undergo Shepherd’s
own rigorous training program and full background checks to qualify to serve the families in each Shepherd home.

We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our homes and our services and to show why our residents and families say… This is Home.

"Small and intimate senior residences. They get care and activities plus trips and events. Affordable and unique concept."
