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
Initially, I did not consider the Lutheran Home for my rehabilitation, as I did not realize they provided those services; however, after meeting their staff, I decided to give them the opportunity to assist me in my recovery. Upon my arrival, I had a spacious private room and bathroom. The staff took the time to review my medical history and ask the questions pertaining to my goals. My call light has always been answered promptly even during meal service.
“The physical and occupational therapists have encouraged my recovery every step of the way. I was able to attend my recent doctor’s appointment using my adaptive equipment to walk. I haven’t been able to do that in quite some time. I am continuing to work hard at my recovery and realized that the Lutheran Home at Napoleon should be everyone’s first choice when needing any type of therapy to get back on your feet.
