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, a “cookie bake” kitchen, various activity rooms, beauty shop, gift shop, private dining room, and a library with Internet access.
Sharing My Story
I was in the Lutheran Home [at Toledo] for therapy after discharge from the hospital. I was very impressed with the therapists and aides. I am now in the assisted living and still feel this is a caring facility. From the director to the nurses and aides, you are treated like a special person and not just a number. The aides do a wonderful job of helping you, and they do it with a smile.
The food is excellent, and there is always a variety to choose from... There is a worship service to assist you with your spiritual needs. Aside from all the services, a variety of activities and outing are available. You can retain your privacy and still have social contacts. I feel this is the best living next to home.
