Memorial Meeting for Residents Who Have Passed in Past 12 Months

In November, families and friends of residents who have passed away in the past 12 months, as well as QHCC administration and other residents, attended a memorial meeting in... QHCC Community Room. Lonny Burger facilitated the memorial. The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) holds as the basis of its faith the belief that every human being is endowed with the Divine Spirit, which may be directly experienced. The manner of worship is an outgrowth of this belief. Friends gather in quiet assemblies, mindful of the words, “Be still, and know that I am God.” They come together in reverent silence with the desire to draw nearer to God and to understand God’s will. For Friends, a memorial meeting is similar in many ways to a meeting for worship. It is not only a time for sharing … [Read more...]

Construction to Start Summer 2014 for New Wing

The new wing, with private small apartments and a state of the art therapy gym will be accessible from Miami Street (close to the old Friends Boarding Home which is now a museum).  We also will be able to convert some of our existing semi-private rooms to private. These are in demand.  Our current therapy gym is very small and busy with not only our residents/short-stay patients but also with those coming for outpatient therapy. Because some like to leave a legacy of a building, room or a garden named in their honor, QHCC is developing these opportunities and others for this new structure.  Funds donated would go toward paying off the HUD loan.  Contact Lisa Gooding (513-897-6628; for more information. … [Read more...]
