There are completely different fee scales based on the campus you are interested in and if you are looking for independent living, assisted living, or skilled nursing care. Contact us for more details.
When it comes to Skilled Nursing, fee scales are determined by individuals’ insurance plans and government programs, i.e. Medicare and Medicaid.
The best way to get the answer to cost is to call the OMH Resource Center @ 1-877-881-1623, tell them what you’re looking for, and they will put you in touch with a representative from the OMH Community you choose whether it be in Springfield, Waterville or Medina.
The Ohio Masonic Home is open to those 55 years of age and older.
No. This has not been the case in nearly 20 years and yet it is common misinformation that still circulates throughout the Fraternity. When you fill out an application for admission, you supply information on your monthly income. This is weighed against what it will cost you to live on campus, depending on your needs. If there is a discrepancy between the cost and your income and you are an Ohio Mason in good standing, the Masonic Home Foundation may be able to help make up the discrepancy, if you qualify.
The answer is Yes; however, the criterion to assist Ohio Master Masons financially is clearly limited to 55 and older. Anyone under 55 can receive help through the OMH Resource Center free of charge. The Resource Center functions as an information and referral service to anyone who calls. We also have an emergency financial assistance program for those who qualify.
Donors are in complete control of how their gifts are used. When a contribution is received, the donor may choose to say, “I want my gift to benefit Master Masons and their families.” 100% of that gift is used to assist worthy and distressed Master Masons, their wives, widows and families through OMH financial assistance programs.
The OMH Resource Center is a comprehensive center designed to assist the members of the Fraternity as well as the community as a whole to age in the healthiest manner possible.
It is also a way to connect you with any of our communities, our lodges and other agencies, which provides trusted partners throughout the state.
Per capita from Grand Lodge that goes to Ohio Masonic Home is $2.20 per mason. The Masonic Home provides on an average 5 to 6 million dollars of financial assistance to Masons and their families per year. We would not be able to provide that assistance if it was not for charitable donations above and beyond per capita.
You have to be an Ohio Master Mason, or their wife, widow or orphan, or an Ohio Eastern Star Member. The Ohio Master Mason must be in good standing for a minimum of five years, which is one of the many reasons that it is so important to keep up on your dues.
We do have Non-Masons living on campus. While all of our campuses are open to the public, individuals who do not have a Masonic affiliation are not eligible to receive financial assistance from OMH and therefore must qualify financially.
No, but you do have to be a Mason to receive financial assistance from the Resource Center.
Donations that are designated by the donor to help Ohio Master Masons their wives, widows and families are used for that purpose alone. OMH has an Aging Respectfully Fund that a donor can designate to do something that benefits all residents. Money only goes in this fund when the donor specifies it will be used for this purpose. As an example, if an OMH Community has an Aging Respectfully request, i.e. a walking path installed to help enhance the physical welfare of the residents, and then those funds would be helping both Masons and Non-Masons who live on the campus. No donations go to directly support an individual who is not a Mason.
