Upcoming Events



There will be a change in the November/December schedule for the Parkinson’s Support Group at St. Francis Home.  There will be no November meeting and the December meeting will be changed to Thursday, December 10th at 1:00 PM.  This change is due to the normal dates falling on a holiday.  The Parkinson’s Support Group is open to anyone dealing with Parkinson’s or a caregiver.  Meetings are regularly held the 4th Thursday of every month at 1:00 PM in the multipurpose room at St. Francis Home, 182 St. Francis Ave., Tiffin.  For more information, please contact Rachel Fabrizio at (419) 447-2723.

Dave Kraft’s media class from Calvert High School came to St. Francis Home to interview our veteran residents. The students made a video for the Veteran Day Celebration at the school. The video honored the WWII vets. After the program, the residents enjoyed cookies and punch along with socializing with the students. These pictures include the residents with the students who are in the media class.

St. Francis Home Receives Check

St. Francis Community and St. Francis Senior Ministries’ staff and residents graciously accepted an award of $1000 for medical equipment needed at St. Francis Home. Teri Lease and Steve Fruth of the North Central Electric People Fund presented the check to Elizabeth Fox, Director of Nursing at St. Francis Home.

The People Fund of North Central Electric Cooperative raises funds each month through “Operation RoundUp” by rounding up their electric bills from voluntary members to the next whole dollar. “It is a great partnership with matching missions of two local organizations together, both helping those in need,” says Ann Keefe, Grants Writer for St. Francis Community. “It is really amazing how a few cents from each member participating, can add up to significant community contributions,” said Lease. Over 500 such community donations have been made throughout the years to various organizations across the region.

St. Francis Home exists to create a community where each individual can live life fully. The scanner to be purchased thru a non-profit discount program thru Verathon Medical will help evaluate infection concerns with residents under St. Francis Home’s care.
