From simple questions about our campuses to more complicated situations, the Resource Center will work to help you age how you want, where you want. No need is considered too small…
A gentleman from Arizona called for advice on renting an apartment at one of the Ohio Masonic Home’s campuses to be near family for part of each year. The campus sales department was quickly contacted and supplied helpful information on respite stays.
Often times, the best solution involves linking a Mason, his wife, widow or child to the local Lodge for help.
Linda Carter, the daughter of the late Thomas T. Williams, called the Resource Center to ask for help with a bathroom appliance at her and her mother, Virginia’s home. An OMHRC representative was able to contact Brother Williams’ former Lodge, Blendon Lodge #339, and explain the situation. Worshipful Master Bob Taylor and Brother Robert Doherty of Blendon Lodge quickly came to Ms. Carter’s aide.
The Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center is also happy to help Ohio Lodges.
LaRue Lodge #463 had been attempting to repair their motorized chair lift for some time with little success. Brother John Mathew, Secretary, contacted a the Resource Center to see if they could assist in any way. An OMHRC representative was able to track down the manufacturer which, in turn, led her to Melissa Groom, manager of 101 Mobility, an authorized repair service out of Columbus, Ohio. After determining that the old lift was indeed, beyond repair, OMHRC and Melissa worked to help Brother Mathew select a suitable and cost-efficient replacement. The new lift was quickly installed and ready for the first meeting of the fall. Brother Mathew had this to say, “We really appreciated your assistance throughout this experience. Due to the information and contacts you provided, our Lodge is again accessible to our entire membership, at a cost we could afford.”
The Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center is even able to help with more complicated situations… A young Brother was injured in a motorcycle accident and needed monetary assistance. With the help of Grand Lodge, Scottish Rite and his Blue Lodge, a representative was able to link him with financial aid. She was also able to help spread the word about several benefits that had been planned for the young Mason.
The Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center is here for you. One call is all it takes to reach a partner to help you age respectfully and comfortably.
