Water it better? The soil it's rooted in could be draining/drying faster than the rest.

You may have gophers. Water, then pull up on the bush to see if it is already chewed off completely. If it has been, the whole thing will come out.

What do you mean by "drooping".
On some rose varieties, the flower head is simply too big and heavy for its spindly stem to support, and the flowers will flop forward. If this is the case, it's nothing to worry about and there is not really anything you can do about it, sadly.

Figure out WHY the flowers are drooping, then you can decide on a solution.
At this time of year (spring) my first thing to suspect would be powdery mildew. Are the stems of the drooping roses covered with a whitish/grayish powder? If so, cut off the weakened flowers and treat the bush for powdery mildew. Go to your local nursery to find good organic products.
If the problem is not powdery mildew, take several good close-up and full sized pictures of your rosebush and take them to a nursery that has somebody who is knowledgeable about roses and ask them to look at the pictures and give you advice.
