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
Let me start out by saying LHS is very special, so special in fact, they are in a class by themselves. In fact, everyone I have met is trying to make this a better place. I intend to tell as many people as I can, for God has truly blessed LHS and everyone deserves to be taken care of like you get cared for at LHS. If you think I like this place…wrong. I love it, and I thank God every day for sending me here.
I would like to say your physical therapy department is very special. I feel you have one person who is young and very special. His name is Ryan. To be special in a department where everyone is good makes you really good! You know, I could write all day, but the end would still be LHS is the very best! I will always brag on LHS. God bless LHS and what you do for everyone!
