Good Shepherd Communities Vision
To enhance Good Shepherd Communities’ outreach through innovative development of quality care,
services and housing provided to seniors in our current markets and beyond, with an unyielding
commitment to all of our stakeholders.
Good Shepherd Communities Mission
Good Shepherd Communities is committed to anticipate and meet the needs of seniors through the development
and operation of a broad range of innovative services and facilities. We will design and explore opportunities
for growth, collaborative relationships and affiliations with other community members to enhance and enrich
senior living and to adapt to the ever-changing environment. We will continually evaluate our organization
to ensure we are operating at our highest potential.
When you step inside the main entrance of Good Shepherd Fairview Home, you immediately notice the inviting smells coming from the café - freshly baked cookies, flavored coffees, and other treats. As you make your way down the hall, the appealing and warm atmosphere pleasantly surprises you. “Main Street” and the other areas of the Home serve to welcome visitors and provide residents with attractive and comfortable surroundings.
Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, Good Shepherd Fairview Home at Binghamton has offered housing and health care services for nearly 140 years. We are proud of our reputation for excellence. Good Shepherd Fairview is a not-for-profit residential healthcare community that offers various levels of care to accommodate individual needs, including:
- 40 apartments for independent living
- 35 enhanced assisted living residence rooms
- 32 assisted living program rooms
- 34 skilled nursing facility beds for long-term care and 2 respite care beds
- 20 private rooms for short-stay rehabilitation
The Home has a philosophy that all people should be treated with dignity and respect. We value individuality and are committed to providing person-centered care to each resident.
Renovations are complete!
The final facet of campus-wide renovations was replacement of the east entry and canopy. The old canopy was removed, concrete walks were replaced and site lighting was re-routed. The east entrance now proudly welcomes all residents and visitors to Good Shepherd Rehab & Wellness.
Over the course of renovations, the entire facility has been updated with a new heating system, furnaces, and energy-efficient windows. Independent living apartments were upgraded with new flooring, modern kitchens and bathrooms, including walk-in showers. Main dining areas, libraries and other common spaces have also been renovated.
New Outpatient Therapy Services Offered
The Outpatient Therapy Department at Good Shepherd Fairview Home is proud to announce the start of a new program available to those individuals with Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders. This program includes LSVT BIG ™, with treatment provided by our Physical and Occupational Therapists, and LSVT LOUD™, provided by our Speech Therapists. Certified LSVT® therapists are excited to offer this diverse treatment approach to our community. This program is unlike traditional therapy methods and is backed by research and years of support from the National Institutes of Health.
