OUr history

On October 8, 1857, nine years after the organization of Auglaize County and four years before the start of the Civil War, the County Commissioners purchased 200 acres in Duchouquet Township for $3,800 from William Ross and John Fisher. On this property a small skilled nursing facility was built. In 1909 a new building was erected, to accommodate the overwhelming demand of skilled care. It’s been more than 150 years and we are still going strong!

Who We are ?

Great care requires consistency and open communication between departments. All our departments — from Rehab to Nursing to Nutrition — work together to design and coordinate a comprehensive care plan for each resident that’s as unique as they are. At Odem at Auglaize we are committed to ensuring the highest quality of life for all our residents while preserving their privacy, dignity, independence and individuality.


We love having visitors because it helps our patients to get and feel better. Our regular visiting hours are 10am to 6pm, 7 days a week. We especially encourage visitors to attend special events such as seasonal parties and birthday parties. We want to make visiting loved ones as easy as possible, so whenever possible, we offer chauffeur service for visiting family members. Please check with the admissions office for availability


A well-treated staff makes for well-cared-for patients. Odem at Auglaize treats its personnel with the utmost of respect, and we’ve found it really rubs off! Their interactions with residents and patients are equally dignified and respectful, and they range from lighthearted to deeply personal. Odem at Auglaize selects only the most proficient and motivated candidates to join our team, chosen after rigorous screening.



Odem at Auglaize is about the community and about you. Our mission is to provide first-class quality care for our residents. We understand that our residents’ care is much more than medical and rehabilitation care. We think out of the box, we understand that when our residents are suffering from illness or disability, they deserve so much more than just treatment.
