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!

About the Community

Located in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, Fairhaven Community has a rich history of providing exceptional housing options and amenities for older adults. As the first United Church Homes community, Fairhaven was established in 1920 to house seven residents. While the community serves many more residents today, Fairhaven seamlessly blends small-town charm and values with innovative lifestyle offerings and person-directed care.

Through a recent campus renovation, our community offers neighborhoods for independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, Fast Track Rehab and memory care.

Our faith-inspired atmosphere celebrates the journey of living by empowering our residents and families to make choices that create the home and community they want for themselves and their loved ones. At Fairhaven, we focus on experiencing all that life has to offer —physically, emotionally and spiritually. Choice. Flexibility. Freedom. It’s all yours at Fairhaven Community.

Independent Living at Fairhaven

  • I don’t want to give up my daily routine.
  • I like my independence.

Are these reasons you give for not looking into independent living in a senior living community? When you compare your current expenses with independent living at Fairhaven Community, you may be surprised at just how reasonable it can be! Are you ready to trade home maintenance and yard work to do things that you enjoy?  Maybe independent living at Fairhaven sounds appealing, but you have questions.

  • What will it cost?
  • How will your life change?

The only thing Fairhaven residents give up is living arrangements that no longer fit their lifestyles or changing needs.

At Fairhaven Community, independent living residents enjoy maintenance-free living in two-bedroom apartments with fully equipped kitchens. We also take care of lawn maintenance and snow removal so you can spend your free time doing whatever you most enjoy!

Upper Sandusky – Fairhaven Community, a United Church Homes community, hosted its Donor Appreciation Dinner on July 9, 2019. The event honored individuals who donate time and offer financial support to the UCH mission.

This year, the community gave three awards: the Ben M. Herbster Award to a devoted donor, the Spirit Award to an enthusiastic volunteer and the Diakonie Award to a supportive congregation.

Point Place United Church of Christ received the Diakonie Award for their continual support of Fairhaven over at least the last 50 years. Church members Jim and Donna Armstrong and Bonny Beebe spearhead the annual Mother’s Day offering that directly benefits Fairhaven. Since UCH started tracking donations in the early 1980s, church members have given nearly $19,000 to the community.

Next, Fairhaven honored Jim Frank with the Spirit Award. He earned this honor for his volunteer work at Fairhaven. Residents know him as the “newspaper guy” because he has been delivering newspapers to Fairhaven for the past 24 years. Through this volunteering, he has become friends with many residents.

Finally, Dr. DP Smith was honored with the prestigious Ben M. Herbster Award for his financial support of Fairhaven. Smith has donated to Fairhaven since the early 1980s, with at least 25 years of giving. Smith is one of the longest practicing doctors in Wyandot County, caring for residents of Fairhaven for many years.

In addition to thanking these outstanding individuals, more than 80 additional donors and volunteers attended the event. Rev. Kenneth V. Daniel, president and CEO of United Church Homes, praised them for living UCH’s mission, vision and values.

“Your gifts transform aging by helping us build a culture of community, wholeness and peace,” he said. “Your advocacy for the residents and families we serve at Fairhaven makes a huge difference in their lives, each and every day.”

In 2018, nearly $75,000 in donations, including more than $16,000 in charitable estate gifts, were invested at Fairhaven.
