Industry Testimonials

“As the instructor for HSE II Nursing, I have found the Otterbein Franklin SeniorLife Community (formally know as Franklin United Methodist Community) staff are very knowledgeable about the needs of geriatric residents and are very receptive to their specific needs. It is great to work along side an organization that cares so much about their residents. Their employees strive for privacy and are very respectful at all times of their residents. They help with every day problems that residents may experience as well as end of life issues, and many things in between. I believe that their services really make a difference in the lives of their residents. Employment within a nursing home is often unappreciated, and there are so many issues that must be addressed. Having a team that appreciates what their nursing home staff encounters, while simultaneously valuing the residents is a most successful combination.”

– Pat Lawton, R.N., Health Science Education II Nursing instructor, Central Nine Career Center

“I have been a vendor (medical supplies) for Otterbein Franklin SeniorLife Community (formally know as Franklin United Methodist Community) for over 25 years.  This is one of the most sincerely professional and caring facilities I have ever worked with. They have ALWAYS been resident focused and hold themselves (and me!) to the highest standards.  Their Christian mission is as strong today as it ever has been and I feel honored to have been associated for them for so long. I have been in the LTC market for over 25 years and I think it is safe to say that FUMC is widely respected facilities in the state of Indiana, as well as locally in Franklin, IN (where I am also a resident).”

– Chris Conoley, Medline

“I have enjoyed working with FUMC for the last several years.  When collaborating with the marketing and wellness team, everyone has such a big heart and truly wants to offer the best care and services for each resident. FUMC is one of the largest CCRC’s in the state of Indiana offering many levels of care for older adults.  New graduate therapists would have the opportunity to provide inpatient rehab, short-term rehab and outpatient therapy as well as work with a large, supportive nursing and therapy staff.  FUMC is known as a strong, reputable provider of retirement living for older adults. It is encouraging to work with employees that go above and beyond to make FUMC an outstanding community for their residents.  FUMC continues to offer the latest services and amenities to ensure their residents have the opportunity to flourish.”

– Holly Skidmore, Director of Marketing, HTS

“We have found Franklin United Methodist Community to be an exceptional partner.  Their insights into successfully navigating the complexities of the post-acute care environment have been invaluable to us.  Their team, at every level, exhibits kindness and compassion, balanced with a truly professional approach.  On a personal note, I find their facility to be exceptionally clean and inviting, and I rarely leave a visit to the campus without having purchased a hand-made wooden toy from the gift shop to give my grandsons!”

– Steve Long, MBA, MHA, FACHE, President & CEO, Hancock Regional Hospital

“I enjoy working with FUMC. The staff is very attentive and passionate about the needs and well-being of its employees and residents. It’s refreshing to work with such a genuine and caring organization. I appreciate that FUMC is a Christian faith-based organization and how this is reflected in their relationships with their employees, residents, professional vendors and the community.”

– Diana Maxam, ProMed Medical Management, Inc.

“The staff at Franklin United Methodist works closely together as a team.  Everyone supports each other to provide the best possible care of our residents. Our therapists and students have the opportunity at Franklin United Methodist Community to work with a variety of types of patients.  They are highly skilled and offer outstanding clinical care. The primary concern and focus of every staff member and the administration is providing for the needs of our residents.  Every member of the team is valued!”

– Cassie Murray, OTR, IASSC CYB, Executive Director of Clinical Services, HTS

Wellness Weekly – Why We Fall…

During Pickleball this week, a resident shared her doctor’s wisdom about why people sometimes fall playing Pickleball, or any sport for that matter . . . Because we keep score! That is a pretty good insight, is it not? When we keep score and play more competitively,...

The long-standing traditions and standards of the United Methodist Church remain a part of our community; however residency is open to persons of all faiths and denominations. We stand committed as a non-profit, faith-based organization willing to serve the needs of our community.
