About Brethren Care Village
Brethren Care Village was established in 1972 with a gift of land (farmland) from the Fritzinger family to the Brethren National Church; located in the Heart of Ashland, OH. It all began with a Mission to care for widows of the church in the old “Farm House” and expanded with an old-fashioned nursing home that was eventually demolished and rebuilt. An assisted living home (as we know them today) was built which led to a true Continuing Care Retirement Community (Life Care Community) being developed. Today Brethren Care Village cares for almost 300 residents. In 2017 they began building a wellness center and community room for lifelong Learning, with an additional 12 market rate housing apartments.

Brethren Care Village broke away from the formal Brethren Church in the 1980’s; however, they hold strongly to the Mission and Values of their founders -despite the loss of one’s income (or spending down) Brethren Care Village will continue to care for those seniors and try every day to improve their quality of life with great individualized services and support in a Christian approach.
