Find Faith-Inspired Living in a Caring Community

Welcome to Fairhaven, a United Church Homes Community

Much like the town of Upper Sandusky, Ohio, Fairhaven is a caring, close-knit community where many residents know one another. Because of our longevity and quality reputation, multiple generations of families live and work here. Our residents and their families appreciate the level of care they receive as well as the continuity of care providers. In fact, our longest-term employee has served Fairhaven residents for 45 years.

But it’s more than the dedication of the employees and residents that make Fairhaven such a special place. It’s how Fairhaven is woven into the fabric of the larger Upper Sandusky community, through activities that create abundant life for its residents. It’s about empowering residents to experience:

  • Active community life
  • Purposeful living in mind, body and spirit
  • Faith-inspired programming
  • Freedom to do what you want each day
  • Respect for personal choice
  • A sense of belonging
  • Welcome and affirming culture

At Fairhaven, we schedule and provide transportation assistance for medical appointments for residents in every neighborhood. Our robust life enrichment program pairs residents with elementary school pen pals and offers outings for shopping and dining. For residents who prefer to stay at home, a volunteer shopper can pick up and deliver needed items. Many residents enjoy browsing the Fairhaven gift shop for cards, snacks or small items.

Welcome home to Fairhaven!

Live auction to highlight 39th Harvest Fest at Fairhaven Community

UPPER SANDUSKY [Aug. 29, 2019] – Fairhaven Community’s Volunteer Service Group (VSG) will host the 39th annual Harvest Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 26 at Fairhaven.

For the first time, this year’s Harvest Fest will include a live auction and a Celebrate Fairhaven presentation.

For decades, farmers and residents have flocked to the popular Harvest Fest to participate in the fun and take home their share of Wyandot County’s bountiful crop harvest. The event dates to the days when farmers generously shared the fruits of their labors with Fairhaven residents. This year’s event will include historic videos from the 1940s that show what life was like at Fairhaven.

The public is invited to attend the event, which will include a live auction (10:30-11:30 a.m.), a bake sale (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), a raffle (closes at 12:30 p.m.) and free entertainment (1-1:30 p.m.). Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a donation, and tours will also be available.

The VSG consists of members of northwest Ohio churches and individual volunteers who regularly give their time at Fairhaven. Among their many volunteer activities, VSG members run Fairhaven’s gift shop. In total, volunteers gave more than 7,500 hours of service to Fairhaven in 2018.
