Stone Lake Center has the vision of creating an environment each day that individuals are able to grow into their best self. Through an encouraging atmosphere full of experiences and possibilities, they excel in self-determination, socialization, community inclusion, work experience, office skills, serving others and developing as an individual. Stone Lake Center began in Galena, Ohio on 5 acres of land. The next year, an opportunity presented to purchase the Sunbury Nursing Home located at 144 North Columbus Street, Sunbury, Ohio. This was an amazing opportunity to renovate this building with it’s 40 inch wide doorways and extra wide hallways to become the current Day Program setting and also the Administrative Offices.
Our beautiful renovated Victorian location is nestled in the Village of Sunbury. Tree lined streets with sidewalks allow for walks, adventures and many outings to our town square where local businesses, memorials, restaurants, ice cream shops and even a museum await! We back up to one of the Big Walnut schools complete with a recreation area. Our outdoor space provides for gardening, cookouts, all types of fun and learning activities to enjoy.
Multiple spaces in the building and site are available for stimulation, learning, or quiet and calming times.
Originally and currently, we endeavor to create a home away from home comfortable atmosphere. We are not an institutional setting or ‘store front’. We are 6,000 sq. ft. with Activity Rooms, Computer labs, laundry learning facility, kitchens, Creation Room, Sensory Room and Sunroom with Music. Personal Care Rooms are provided for those who may need assistance or require changes.
