Springboro SeniorLife Neighborhood

Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation near Dayton, OH

Otterbein Springboro residents, referred to as elders, live in a house with other elders but have their own private suites and share family-style meals and living areas. Our small house model means our elders receive personalized attention for skilled nursing, rehabilitation, memory care, and long-term care.

Through a person-centered care approach, elders in our small house neighborhood experience meaningful friendships, connection, and life enrichment — making us a valuable part of the surrounding Springboro/Centerville community.

In partnership with The Green House Project, we’re creating the Otterbein Difference for our elders, families, and partners >>
