Indiana nursing home closes, laying off 71 staff

Indiana-based nursing home, Wittenberg Village in Crown Point, will close its doors and lay off 71 workers in October, NWI Times reported Sept. 20.

Wittenberg Village notified the Indiana Department of Workforce Development of the upcoming layoffs — as mandated by the state — in August, citing inflation, the pandemic and staff shortages as the reasons for closing.

Layoffs will take place between Oct. 9 and 31. The facility has been helping affected residents find new homes, including at other skilled nursing facilities in Crown Point.

Wittenberg Village is owned by Arlington Heights-based Lutheran Life Communities. Wittenberg Village's other living communities, including residential living and assisted living, are staying open.
