Our Management Team
Owner/ Licensee, Jeffrey Shepard, has more than 20 years experience in providing care at a variety levels. Jeff began his career at a young age, growing up within the family business. After years of overseeing the day-to-day operations side-by-side with his grandparents; Jeff purchased the family business at their retirement.
After years of enriching and exploring life with the patients in his first Adult Foster Care (AFC) home, Jeff expanded with the purchase of his second AFC home; where he continues to be involved in all the day-to-day operations and decision making. Although both homes keep Jeff very busy, he knows with the help of his ever-giving staff that he can continue to grow, providing a loving, caring home for even more patients. Elder Ridge Manor II, Jeff’s third AFC home, will be open in the late fall of 2016.
Administrator, Jennifer Flores, started her career in care-giving in her High School days working for the local nursing home. Jenny has been with the communities of Elder Ridge Manor for almost 10 years now.
