St. Francis Home Receives Donation

St. Francis Home is pleased to announce that we recently received a very generous donation from the Estate of Virginia “Ginny” Zahn. Ginny and her husband Wayne were residents of St. Francis Villas for several years, and have been generous benefactors to the St. Francis campus dating back to the 1990’s.

St. Francis has established the St. Francis Endowment Fund with the Zahn donation and will be using the income earned from these invested funds to support St. Francis Home.

 “We are very grateful for the generosity of Virginia & Wayne Zahn and want to recognize the importance of these funds to benefit our residents and our facility. Their generous support can be seen not only here at St. Francis but in several organizations throughout the Tiffin community. They have truly been a blessing to our campus and we are so thankful for their donation” said Jessica Short, Executive Director at St. Francis Senior Ministries.

St. Francis Assisted Living and Friedman Village Assisted Living Ohio Department of Health Survey Results

On March 24, 2016 and March 29, 2016 the Ohio Department of Health came to do their inspection of Friedman Village at St. Francis Assisted Living and St. Francis Assisted Living. According to the website,

“The Ohio Department of Health’s Bureau of Healthcare Standards and Quality is responsible for enforcement of the Ohio Revised Code and Ohio Administrative Code rules and laws in licensed residential care facilities in Ohio. Each of the residential care facilities in Ohio receives at least one unannounced survey (inspection) during a 9 to 15 month survey cycle. During these surveys, all aspects of care and services are evaluated based on state laws and rules. Each residential care facility is required to display a copy of the most recent survey. The Division also investigates complaints related to resident’s rights, quality of care, quality of life, staffing, abuse, dietary, and environmental concerns.”

The Ohio Department of Health found Friedman Village at St. Francis Assisted Living and St. Francis Assisted Living deficiency free (no citations)! According to St. Francis Senior Ministries Executive Director Jessica Short, “It takes a significant effort on the part of all our staff to deliver quality care.  It is an accomplishment we are very proud of.”
