Senior Residential Facility in Bedford, Ohio


June 6, 2024

Dear Friends and Family of Light of Hearts Villa,
Happy June! With summer upon us, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the warm weather and blooming flowers. We are excited to share updates about our community and remind everyone to take necessary precautions to stay safe in the sun. Please remind your loved ones to remember to wear sunscreen when spending time on the patio. We have reminded them during resident meetings, but we also want to gently remind everyone to stay on the pavement in the back patio area. The grounds around the pond are uneven, and we want to avoid any accidents!
Thank You, John!
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to John Ivan who has retired after 6 years of service to Light of Hearts Villa as Director of Facility Operations. His leadership and commitment have greatly contributed to our success. Please join us in wishing John a happy and fulfilling retirement! We are actively working on a plan to fill his position and, in the meantime, are receiving maintenance support from the Sisters of Charity Health System.
