Located on Lutheran Homes Society’s first campus, Lutheran Home at Toledo was originally known as the “Altenheim” or “Lutheran Old Folks’ Home.” The initial building was constructed in 1906 on land between the Lutheran Orphans’ Home and First St. John Lutheran Church on Seaman Street. The Toledo campus is located near the border of East Toledo and Oregon, down the road from both Mercy St. Charles and ProMedica Bay Park hospitals.
Lutheran Home at Toledo, which has expanded services, renovated and built new buildings, and employed thousands of dedicated workers, has seen numerous changes in health care and society throughout its more than 100 years of providing compassionate care. Today, the Toledo campus welcomes individuals with its sweeping lawn at the corner of Seaman and Wheeling streets and remains a premier provider of care services for older adults.
The Toledo campus can meet the service needs of individuals to age gracefully and with dignity. One of the benefits of being a resident of the 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 assisted living, then you would have priority status to get into the nursing care center.
The campus serves people of all faiths. There is a full-time chaplain on staff to assist with spiritual needs and a beautiful, historic chapel for worship. The campus also features a large community room, various activity and craft rooms, a beauty shop, gift shop, private dining room, and a “cookie bake” kitchen.
Sharing My Story
When I had my other rotator cuff done, I went from hospital to home. I did not have the in-house care and physical therapy with the first surgery. My recuperating period went so smoothly this time around. I have almost complete mobility in my arm.
All the nurses, therapists, and aides were so great to me. All of my pain and comfort issues were addressed immediately and taken care of. I have never had such good care. The transition was fantastic. Administration was great -- they handled all my financial arrangements.
I enjoyed the activity cart and the lady was very helpful. I was able to make a couple cool things in the wood shop and enjoyed that. Bob, the volunteer, was very helpful.
I shared with everyone in my complex how great The Labuhn Center is. If they need to have surgery...The Labuhn Center is the place to go for rehab. I am going to invite The Labuhn staff to come [to Luther Grove], so my friends can meet them.
