Situated in Jaffrey, the heart of the Monadnock Region in southwestern New Hampshire, Good Shepherd Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is an integral part of its community and is located less than 15 minutes from Monadnock Community Hospital.This 83-bed center has nursing units designated for residents according to care needs including short-term skilled care and dementia / memory impairment. The rooms and common areas are all on one level allowing for convenient access to common dining, activity, and outdoor areas. A large enclosed courtyard area affords residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with a shaded patio, paved walking paths, and easily accessible gardens and planters. Additionally, religious services are regularly provided in the chapel; this is also available for residents and visitors seeking a quiet place for reflection.

Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Services

We provide rehabilitation therapy and nursing care for patients after hospitalization. Such "post acute" care is often needed after today's shorter hospital stays and may be appropriate following:

  • General or cardiac surgery
  • Joint replacement and orthopedic surgery
  • Traumatic and brain injuries
  • Strokes

We also provide complex nursing care for:

  • Pain management
  • Specialized skin and wound care
  • Nutritional support and diabetes management

Hospice Care
Hospice or "palliative" care is available if curative or restorative care is no longer appropriate and desired for terminally ill individuals. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort and pain relief as well as pastoral support and counseling for patients and family. A private hospice room is furnished to accommodate extended visits by family members.

Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
People with Alzheimer's or similar type of memory impairment usually benefit from a structured routine and supportive social environment separate from other long-term care residents.

Short-Term Respite Care
We provide short-term respite care when an at-home caregiver is temporarily unavailable or in need of extended personal time away.

Long-Term Care
Individuals with chronic illness or late-stage Alzheimer's disease are cared for with the goal that they attain their highest functional ability. Individualized care programs provide restorative and rehabilitation services as appropriate to achieve that goal.
