A Little Bit About Shepherd of Harvard

We all want to belong somewhere, have the support of those around us, have someone to sit with us and hold our hands or comfort us when we need it.

That’s why at Shepherd Premier Senior Living, we are overjoyed to have the opportunity to create a secure loving family environment. Residents are happy and cared for, and family and guests are always welcome.

“The whole concept of Shepherd is not to make money, but to give the elders a safe place to live out the rest of their lives. Our family can never say enough good things about the care given at shepherd premier by the owners and employees”


Our Harvard Community

Harvard, a cozy community of 9,119, is cradled among farmers’ fields and stables about six miles South of the Illinois/Wisconsin border. In this rustic setting, Shepherd Premier Senior Living has completely renovated a 156-year-old, 7,300-square-foot Victorian Independent Living Home. The renovation included upgrading with sprinklers throughout and installing a state-of-the-art security and monitoring system.

The result is a home that offers a peaceful lifestyle where your loved one(s) can catch their breath and yet find engaging activities that will fill their lives with the relaxing pleasures of rural life. They can rest on the wrap-around porch and lanai in the spring, summer and fall or enjoy a book by the fireplace in the winter. They can also go out in the community where, in Harvard, there is plenty to do.

Comfort, Security and a richly rewarding lifestyle: Amenities at our Harvard Assisted Living Home

Along with sprinklers, security and monitoring systems, Shepherd Premier Senior Living’s Harvard Assisted Living Home has 12 private rooms, 3 semi-private rooms, 5.5 bathrooms (2 of which are ADA compliant) and an elevator.
