Good Shepherd Institute

The programs of Good Shepherd Institute help navigate the many changes and challenges in the current health care environment and offer opportunities to explore new areas in the fields of aging, dying, death, grief and other life transitions. 

With enhanced clarity about options and goals, patients and families enjoy higher quality of life and experience decreased rates of unwanted interventions and hospital visits.
