About New Albany

New Albany was named the No. 1 suburb in America by Business Insider for its close access to Columbus, low average commute time, high median household income, low crime rate, and excellent public school rating. With these impressive statistics, it’s no wonder we chose New Albany as the location for one of our Small House Neighborhoods.

Business headquarters and picturesque white fences coexist alongside newly-built homes and acres of golf courses. It’s a growing community with plenty to do and see, making it popular for young families. It’s also just minutes from downtown Columbus, home to plenty of green space and Metroparks, and easily accessible from I-270.

In addition, our New Albany Small House Neighborhood is part of the preferred network of OSU’s Wexner Medical Center, Mt. Carmel, and OhioHealth.

“For me, this is not a lot different from where I came from. I just feel like I am at home.”

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.
