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
[When] I was admitted to The Labuhn Center, I was unable to do anything without assistance. The goal was to have me stand for five seconds without collapsing. The caring and knowledgeable staff began with the simplest of exercises, which seemed insignificant in the beginning, but we kept working toward new goals almost daily…Our goal now has progressed to walking without the aid of a walker.
I never could have accomplished this without the help from my therapists, and even the excellent aides, who were so helpful to me when I was all but helpless. I thought in the beginning that there was no hope of returning home, but would instead be moved to the nursing home section of the home. I cannot praise the staff enough for my near miraculous recovery that I am enjoying today. It has been two months, and I am now receiving outpatient therapy three days a week, and I am happily looking forward to continued improvement. I owe so much to my therapists Ryan and Laurie.
