Lifestyle Choices & Types of Care

There are choices galore at Otterbein Pemberville – whether you’re looking for independent living or nursing care, we’ve got a living space to suit your needs, all conveniently located on our beautiful campus.

Lifestyle Choices

At Otterbein Pemberville, our charming community of all brick ranch-style private villas combines personal space with social opportunities, where you can enjoy a comfortable, gracious lifestyle on friendly, scenic streets.

Our independent living homes come in four spacious floor plans, all with attached oversized garages, and many have all-season sunrooms. They come unfurnished, offering you plenty of space for your belongings.

If you prefer independent living in an apartment, Otterbein Pemberville features a variety of floor plans, all of which are connected to our main building. That way, you’re right where the action is, no matter what the weather is doing outside.

Our specially-designed and furnished assisted living suites, which open into the main building, include large one-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes and spacious studios. Creative residents find plenty of ways to personalize their spaces and whichever apartment you choose, you’ll enjoy a caring and attentive environment with nurses available 24/7.

If you need a little more attention, our nursing care shared and private suites put your health and comfort above all else. But rest assured, you’ll have plenty of independence when it comes to what you want to do. Tell us what you want, and we’ll build a schedule around you!

Care Services

At Otterbein Pemberville, formerly known as Otterbein Portage Valley, we believe in keeping you in the best of health, so we offer wellness support for independent living. Because we are a continuing care community, we also have assisted living services to keep you enjoying life as comfortably as possible, along with skilled nursing, rehabilitative care and transitional care.

For residents with dementia, we have memory support and respite care for caregivers.

Additionally, we offer Hydroworx. This state-of-the-art water therapy technique is unique to our Pemberville location and provides our residents and other members of the community an alternative for those recovering from a surgery or injury.

At Otterbein, continuous life enrichment is one of our core values, so every Pemberville resident meets with an activities counselor to create a plan for personal development for your physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and vocational well-being. We want to give you every opportunity to be the best you!



In these neighborly surroundings, every step leads to something pleasant to do at Otterbein Pemberville. You’ll find yourself among friends who enjoy the same things you do, like strolling, gardening, working in the woodshop, or fishing.

Designed for active lifestyles, Otterbein Pemberville is home to the main building and the Bowlus Life Enrichment Center, which host programs, fitness classes, lectures, and café-style dining with meals by Chef Reggie — making every day a joy.

There’s never a dull moment with this CCRC’s jam-packed schedule featuring guest speakers on topics such as history, nature, and health, prayer groups, and worship services.

Watch movies in our auditorium, attend worship services in our chapel, pick up a book from our library, or visit the beauty shop and barber shop on campus. At Otterbein Pemberville, everything is here — or a stone’s throw away!

With Otterbein Pemberville’s convenient location to downtown Pemberville, Bowling Green, and Perrysburg, as well as to the highway, excursions and local sightseeing opportunities come naturally to Portage Valley residents.

Our location is also easily accessible for friends and family, and there’s always something to do on campus. With our on-campus shuttle, personal transportation can be arranged to the area sports and arts events, fairs, and festivals.
