Who We Are: Ohio Living was founded in 1922 when the tragic death of a seven-year-old girl led to a gift of 294 acres of farmland in her memory. Today, Ohio Living is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit, multi-site aging services organizations. Since our founding, Ohio Living has defined and provided the highest standards of quality of life for adults through its 13 life plan communities and Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice, with support of the Ohio Living Foundation. Donors who share our values of dignity, quality and compassion have given more than $240 million since 1986.

What We Do: We’ve been caring for your neighbors and family members for generations. Our core values of care, compassion, innovation, integrity, financial stewardship and leadership are infused in all we do. Our services range from housing and care options in one of our life plan communities to home health and hospice support for adults, wherever they live in our 48-county service area:

  • Independent living in ranch-style or apartment homes

  • Assisted living

  • Long-term nursing care

  • Short-term rehabilitation

  • Outpatient therapy

  • Memory care

  • Home healthcare

  • In-home physical, speech and occupational therapies

  • Hospice

Why We're Important: Many families are not able to provide the care their loved ones need. Because our actions are guided by compassion and faith, not profit, last year more than 73,000 people turned to us for help with this honored task. Perhaps most troubling, at many communities, the residents who run out of funds are asked to find care elsewhere. Our Life Care Commitment means that our residents will always have a home with us, even if – in good faith – they run out of funds meant to see them through.

How We Impact the Community: Ohio Living is an asset to each community serves. Ohio Living:

  • Serves 73,000+ people annually in 48 counties

  • Employs 3,000+ people across Ohio

  • Collaborates with 600+ civic, educational and health care organizations

  • Is Great Place to Work–Certified™
