Friedman Village Assisted Living Brochure

On August 8, 2018 the Ohio Department of Health came to do their annual inspection of Friedman Village at 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 deficiency free (no citations)!  Friedman Village at St. Francis is a part of the St. Francis Senior Ministries life plan community.  St. Francis Senior Ministries has assisted living rooms as well as independent living, nursing care, post hospital rehabilitation and a specialized Alzheimer’s/dementia residence.
