What is a Small House?
THE SMALL HOUSE DIFFERENCE
Our neighborhoods are groups of five homes on cul-de-sacs in established residential areas. Each home features 10 private rooms with private baths, a communal kitchen and living room, and a secure backyard patio. This isn’t just a place where our elders stay – it’s their home.
How do we do it? We give our elders the power of choice. When to get up, what and when to eat, how to spend the day – these are all choices our elders are free to make on their own, just like at home. There are no rigid schedules or strict mealtimes; instead, independence is key.
Elders also have access to 24-hour care from a small team of licensed nurses, nursing assistants, and therapists. There’s also the emergency call system. Elders may be living here on a permanent basis, or temporarily for rehabilitation after an injury or illness. Either way, they’re treated as part of the Otterbein family.
