With Otterbein’s vibrant social scene designed for active lifestyles, there’s always something to do at Cridersville. There’s scheduled transportation for excursions and local sightseeing opportunities such as concerts and museums, as well as wellness and health care services like the on-campus fitness center.

Maybe you prefer relaxing outdoors with amenities just outside your doorstep, like fishing at three well-stocked lakes or walking and biking along picturesque paved paths. Otterbein Cridersville is a beautiful campus that has it all.

Lifestyle Choices & Types of Care at Otterbein Cridersville

Otterbein Cridersville is a continuing care community that adjusts to each resident with every living option you need, all ready for your personalized touch. Our modern, safe, and comfortable spaces with 24-hour call systems offer you and your family peace of mind, so can you live as independently as you wish.

Lifestyle Options

With choices ranging from charming one- or two-bedroom patio homes, to two- or three-bedroom ranch homes, to one-bedroom and two-bedroom studio apartments, our independent living options offer plenty of living space.

If you need help with some of life’s daily activities but still want to live as independently as possible, with our assisted living choices, you’ll still enjoy a caring environment with nurses available 24/7.

You may need ongoing care, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do things the way you want to, and with our nursing care at Otterbein Cridersville, you decide when and what you do.

Care Services

Our services at Otterbein Cridersville include wellness support for independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and post-acute care and rehabilitative care, memory support, and respite care. At Otterbein, we care for the whole you: physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and vocational, so every Cridersville resident meets with an activities counselor who works with you to create a plan for personal development and life enrichment experiences.



Like all Otterbein campuses, the Cridersville community is designed for active lifestyles. If you prefer the outdoors, take a stroll or a bike ride along the paved roads throughout our 120 beautifully landscaped acres. There are also raised garden beds, outdoor shuffleboard courts, a picnic area, and a gazebo for when you need shade.

Indoors, at our Life Enrichment Center, there’s a fitness center, a pool, and the campus center, which is the heart of Otterbein Cridersville. The Life Enrichment Center is also open to non-resident members who are 55+ and fully vaccinated. Just fill out the form below for details.

Our apartments, assisted living, and skilled nursing spaces open into the campus center, which features a dining area, community and conference rooms, the woodshop and craft room, the campus cinema, and the chaplain’s office.
