What Do Residents Have to Say About Living at Otterbein?

Here’s just a small sampling of what our residents told us they like best about living here.

“The moment we walked in, it was like home.” – Sandra C. 

“We’re lucky around here to have some nice golf courses close by, and I’m also very active in the gym that we have here at Otterbein.” – Chuck P. 

“I’m 86 years old, and when I came here five years ago I was on six medications. Now I’m down to 2. I swim every day, I lift weights 3 times a week, and I run on the track. I’m a senior Olympian, and I compete internationally. So I’m actually stronger and faster now than I was 5 years ago when I came here.” – Bob A.

“When I came here they talked about the Spirit of Otterbein, and I thought – that is really a marketing ploy. But it’s true. The spirit of Otterbein is wonderful.” – Linda F.  

“My husband was here in daycare eight or nine years ago, and I knew this was a good place. I love my new neighbors and I feel safe here.” – Nancy M. 

“After checking out many places, my daughter and I came here. And we looked at each other, and we said happy, ‘What a happy place.’” – Mary Lou M.

“I was just amazed at how very friendly and kind all the residents are to each other and to new people. It’s a big place, and sometimes when I ask someone, ‘Am I on the right way to such-and-such?’ And they say, ‘Let me take you.’ They go out of their way to show you.” – Barbara S.

“After living here for about three days, my grandson and I were walking in the halls, and after we went back to the apartment he told his mom, ‘Grandma knows everybody here’. That’s how friendly they are.” Nell H.
