Located in Henry County, just south of Napoleon and directly across the street from the county fairgrounds, Lutheran Home at Napoleon inherently reflects the friendly, rural tone of the local community and the area’s Germanic heritage. The opening of the Napoleon Home in 1985 coincided with Lutheran Homes Society’s 125th Anniversary and heralded the expansion of elderly care services from the original Lutheran Old Folks Home in east Toledo. Independent living was added in 1991 and assisted living completed the continuum of care in 2001.

The Napoleon campus can meet the service needs of individuals to age gracefully and with dignity. One of the benefits of being a resident of the Napoleon campus is, if it is determined that the next level of care is needed, you have priority admission status. For example, if you live in Bavarian Village independent living, then you would have priority status to get into one of the assisted living apartments at Alpine Village. Likewise, if you were an assisted living resident, you would have priority admission to the nursing care center.

The Napoleon campus serves people of all faiths. There is a full-time chaplain on staff and an on-site chapel that offers services for many faiths. The scenic campus is quiet with paved, lit walking paths and garden sitting areas. Along with a wide range of available social activities and outings to enhance the lives of residents, the Napoleon campus provides a warm and welcoming place for seniors to call home.

Sharing My Story

Gertrude KurtzMy journey to the Lutheran Home started in July 2014, when I had to have surgery and needed rehab. I went to the Lutheran Home to receive therapy, and the staff made the hard work fun. I chose the Lutheran Home because I was Lutheran, but it was the people who made the difference.

When I was done with my therapy, my family and I decided [it was time for me] to move to Alpine Village assisted living on the same campus. What an easy and the best decision, since I already knew the staff was wonderful. The therapy staff still comes over to see me. I have my bed, chair, and pictures – the stuff that is important to me – and I’ve created my home. I never get lonely, because I always have company. Even when winter comes, I know I will not be bored. We have fun activities, such as Bible studies, bingo, beauty shop, and, more importantly, church!

I am reading a book, “The Forever Year” by Ronald Anthony, about a gentleman who couldn’t live by himself anymore. It is such a good read about understanding the difficult decision to relocate your “home.” My recommendation is consider the relocation a new beginning and keep enjoying life.
