Middletown SeniorLife Neighborhood
Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation in Middletown, OH
Otterbein Middletown residents, referred to as elders, live in one of five houses in our small house neighborhood. Through a person-centered care approach, elders receive care specific to their skilled nursing, rehabilitation, memory care, and long-term care needs.
Our small house model means our elders receive personalized attention and reside in their own private suites with family-style meals and shared living areas. The small house neighborhood inspires connection and life enrichment, a direct complement to the values you’ll discover in the surrounding Middletown community.

Located in Butler and Warren counties, Middletown is a lively suburban city with a growing economy and rich history. Family-oriented and tight-knit, Middletown has small-town charm, but also offers easy access to city attractions, as the city is situated roughly at the midpoint between Dayton and Cincinnati. There are countless parks, bike baths, and natural sanctuaries to explore, and it is also home to the Hook Field Municipal Airport.
“For me, this is not a lot different from where I came from. I just feel like I am at home.”
–Betty Fischer, Otterbein Small Houses elder

THE SMALL HOUSE DIFFERENCE
Middletown SeniorLife Neighborhood is a group of five homes on cul-de-sacs in an established residential area in Middletown, Ohio. Each home features 12 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 at Otterbein Middletown 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.
