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!

Fairhaven’s Schwilk Recognized with LUV Award

MARION [Jan. 17, 2020] – Debbie Schwilk, a dining services assistant at Fairhaven Community in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, has received the 2019 Living UCH Values Award for demonstrating United Church Homes’ core values – compassion, hospitality, respect, integrity, stewardship and transparency.

Schwilk’s nominator said Schwilk went above and beyond to assist a resident whose scooter became stuck in mud on the Fairhaven campus. Schwilk, who has worked at Fairhaven since October 2017, jumped to assist, cleaning the scooter in a shower room.

Debbie Schwilk presented with LUV Award
L-R: United Church Homes President and CEO Rev. Kenneth Daniel, Regional Director of Operations Sean Riley, LUV Award recipient Debbie Schwilk and Dietary Services Manager Darlene Fredritz, both of Fairhaven Community, and UCH Vice President of Human Resources Scott Slutz

“Debbie works in dietary but went out of her way to help, not only for the resident’s personal property but for Fairhaven’s cleanliness,” Schwilk’s nominator wrote.

UCH employees are eligible to receive the award throughout the year, and a select few are chosen for the highest honor out of hundreds of nominations. Nominations may be made by staff, volunteers, residents and their families.

“The 2019 Living United Church Homes Values Award recipients achieved UCH’s most coveted staff award,” said Scott Slutz, vice president of human resources. “Debbie exemplifies the commitment to living UCH values every day. We recognize Debbie for modeling the values that have become the hallmark of the United Church Homes experience and commitment to serving older adults.”
