The Jane Baker House. The Otterbein North Shore campus boasts the prototype of the innovative “small house” skilled care neighborhoods that are liberating elders from institutional-style nursing facilities. The Ohio Department of Aging’s 2009 Long-term Care Resident Satisfaction Survey placed it first out of all Ohio nursing homes. Out of a possible 100, the Jane Baker House rated 95. One hundred percent of those asked said they would recommend it to others. It also achieved an overall rating of five stars in the Medicare 5-Star Rating System in 2010, and a deficiency-free survey in 2012.

The Jane Baker House has been rated #1 in Resident Satisfaction by the Ohio Department of Aging, April 2012. “Perfect” inspection by Ohio Department of Health, May 2012.

Northern Lights. We publish our newsletter, Northern Lights, to keep you in the know. This is a calendar of programs and events you can’t do without.

Life Enrichment Programs. Every Otterbein North Shore resident meets with our activities counselor who works to create a plan for personal development. We care for the whole you: physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and vocational.

Scheduled Transportation. The campus shuttle will pick you up for dinner if you need a lift, and for any of our organized activities. (There are so many!) And return you safely to your doorstep.
