A Legacy of Caring

July 10, 2021

The current COVID-19 virus outbreak has challenged every facet of our society.  This situation requires that we take every precaution possible to protect our residents’ health and safety. This is our top priority. Our intention is to provide a safe and healthy environment for every person who is part of the Heinzerling Community; this includes residents, family members, guardians, staff, and community members. We encourage our residents, staff and family members to get vaccinated and use precautions when in public.

Current Procedures:

  • We are limiting visitors to our facilities. All visitors must complete a health screen upon building entry according to CDC guidelines. Family visitations are taking place in private areas that are sanitized in-between visits.
  • All staff are practicing infection control procedures and are undergoing routine screening for everyone’s health and safety.
  • We encourage staff to practice social distancing when not at work as well as maintaining distance as much as possible while at work.
  • We are working with our partners at the Ohio Department of Health, Department of Developmental Disabilities, and Center for Medicaid Services to obtain the supports we need to continue to provide for the needs of our residents and staff.
  • We are also working closely with our colleagues through our associations with the Ohio Provider Resource Association and Ohio Healthcare Association to communicate concerns and to address the needs of the Heinzerling Community residents and staff.

Welcome Home

Over 60 years ago, Otto and Mildred Heinzerling dedicated themselves to caring for an often overlooked population—children with severe and profound developmental disabilities. Today, we continue to honor their vision by providing children and adults with compassionate, respectful care in a loving and comfortable home environment.
