Recovering from surgery or illness?

Waiting for Long-Term Care?

Not sure if Retirement of Assisted-Living is right for you?


We can help.

The Shepherd Village Short-Stay program offers short stays for those that require nursing care, supervision or simply want to enjoy the benefits of retirement or assisted-living while their loved ones are away.

Short stays are also used for prospective residents to try out their new surroundings and determine if Retirement living is right for them with no obligations.


 Short stays offer the following benefits:

  • freedom to continue your daily activities in a secure and safe environment
  • nursing care is provided (where necessary) to aid in a restful and full recovery
  • flexibility to stay a minimum of 30-nights or continue your stay with us permanently
  • an opportunity to sample our facilities and determine if retirement living is right for you

Hospital visits or surgeries are never welcomed, and the decision to leave your home is never an easy one. The short-stay program is designed to take the stress and burden off your shoulders in making a hasty decision, which is one of the more difficult decisions that we face as we age. Shepherd Terrace strives to offer all the same benefits as home while providing the care and services you need and want all within the Shepherd Village community.
