SeniorLife in the Home: Our Care Comes to You
With Otterbein’s SeniorLife in the Home services, you can be part of the Otterbein family without living on campus. We’ll bring the best personal and professional home care directly to your doorstep. Otterbein SeniorLife offers Home Health services in the surrounding 10 Southwest Ohio counties.
Home Health Services
When you’re recovering from surgery, illness, injury, a wound, or a fall, there’s a special team ready to help. Our skilled nurses, home health aides, and physical, occupational, and speech therapists bring their high level of personalized care and therapy to you.
Our home health care team takes the time to listen to your concerns, guide you, and share encouragement. Since physical healing benefits from spirituality, spiritual caregivers will pray, read scripture, or simply chat with you as you wish.
- Intravenous infusions
- Wound care
- Disease management
- On-site assessment at skilled nursing facilities before home discharge
We Want to be Your Hospice Caregivers
At Otterbein, we have an emotional bond with our residents and their families, and we’d like it to remain unbroken. That’s why we’ve developed a hospice care ministry.
Should any of our Otterbein family decide not to pursue aggressive medical care at the end of life, we want to be their hospice caregivers. This rings true for any of our Otterbein “families” in the community, as well. You don’t have to live on the Otterbein campus to have our hospice services; Otterbein hospice can bring the Otterbein ministry to your family member in any of the 10 counties we service, in any setting. Hospice care is an ACHC accredited Otterbein ministry.
At Otterbein, we plan to be physically, emotionally, and spiritually present to you and your loved ones. Our hospice nurses will be responsive, involving you and your loved ones in all your care options, ensuring your comfort. Our chaplains will be there with loving guidance. And you will be at home, in every sense of the word.
