The Epilepsy Center works to offer support to other community members by offering temporary services in our group home settings. Beds are available for both men and women at our Barbara Jean McDonagh and Jean Scott Furney homes. We offer a stable, homelike environment with 24 hour staffing and nursing services available. We request a minimum of 48 hours notice whenever possible; however emergency services may be available upon request.


We are licensed and/or overseen by the Lucas and Wood County Boards of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, the Ohio Department of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, The Ohio Department of Health, and Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
