About Us

Established in Ashland County in 1956, LSS The Good Shepherd (TGS) is dedicated to providing the finest health care services within an atmosphere of gracious hospitality. The Good Shepherd successfully blends the tradition of Victorian architecture with state-of-the-art medical technology and offers a setting that allows individuals to move within various levels of care depending on their needs at that time.


LSS The Good Shepherd, located in Ashland’s historic district, has been serving senior adults in Ashland County since 1956, thanks to the hopes and dreams of a few local pastors and congregations.
