Good Shepherd Cancer Awareness Day
The North Little Rock Fire Department will be here with their 1979 Mack Fire truck which was painted pink as a symbol of hope to support the Komen Race for the Cure. The truck will come to the front of each building for residents to see and get their picture taken with on Friday October 17th. Scheduled times are Roberts at 9:00 a.m., Cottages at 10:00 a.m., Shepherd’s Cove at 11:00 a.m., Moore at 12:00 noon, and Rhinehart at 1:00 pm.

Put on your Pink and show your support as we launch balloons!

UAMS Nursing Professionals
Good Shepherd Community through Wellness Services and participating residents at the Moore, Rhinehart, and Roberts Buildings would like to say ‘Thank You!’ to the UAMS Nursing Students, Dr. Veneine Cunningkin, and Dr. Carol Enderlin for choosing us to perform their clinical rotation. For six weeks UAMS Nursing Students, paired with a resident, provided BP screening, assisted with emergency preparedness such as by helping residents update their medication(s), healthcare provider and emergency contact lists; in addition to, promoting health awareness and education. October first and seventh will be the completion dates of their rotation. It has been a great pleasure getting to know these outstanding professionals. We are appreciative of their attention and time in allowing us to be a part of their healthcare experience in developing skills, we wish them the best life has to offer and continued success in their professional future.
