It is located at 43 E. Utica St. in Oswego and was established in 1872.

The Ladies Home strives to provide personal care and comfort for women who are no longer able to care for themselves at home but are not quite ready for a nursing home.

Rotarian Nancy Kush Ellis introduced Ms. Rutledge to the Fulton Rotarians.

The focus of the Ladies Home is on meeting each individual’s needs and give the residents a sense of purpose.

Companionship is also a bonus for the residents at the Ladies Home.

Monthly calendars are filled with lunch trips, exercise, religious services and personal care time, as well as, games and movies.

When residents need more skilled nursing they are transitioned into a higher care facility.

Monthly fees are reasonable.

The residents participate in an Adopt-A-Grandparent Program with area elementary schools.

The Ladies Home welcomes all volunteers so if you have some spare time they would love to have you.
