About

SeniorLife Communities

Our SeniorLife Communities offer a full continuum of care with independent living, assisted living, and nursing care. It’s a structure most recognize as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) or life plan community.

However, we often wonder why it’s called “retirement.” The senior population is such an active one — you travel, volunteer, work, serve in community leadership roles, and share lifetimes of wisdom and knowledge.

At Otterbein, we don’t see any reason why that should stop after you move in. You’ll find endless outlets for your energies, have an opportunity to make new friends, and enjoy a lively, active community.

When it comes to comfort and security, all six of our SeniorLife Communities offer a wide choice of houses, apartments, and assisted living — with friendly, compassionate, care as you need it.

If you live in Ohio, you’re not far from our Otterbein SeniorLife Communities. Explore our communities online below and schedule a tour to see them for yourself.

Planning and Paying for Independent Living

Wellness Services at Your Doorstep

If you live at one of our six SeniorLife Communities, our wellness services may be available to you. We offer a variety of services from personal care and companionship to routine wellness checks and skilled nursing care. Rest assured that all the individuals providing services are our very own trusted Otterbein staff.

The charges for these services remain reasonable because we want to make them accessible. For example, skilled nurse services can be requested by the hour, or by 15-minute intervals. Why pay for more than you need?

At-home wellness services include:

  • Personal care and companionship
  • Wellness checks
  • Skilled nursing care
  • Homemaker services such as meal preparation and light housekeeping
  • Transportation to and from doctor’s appointment
  • Medication management and medical equipment assistance
  • Nurse visits in response to emergency requests
  • Communication with family when necessary and appropriate
