What is a small house?

Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices is introducing an elder care revolution! Otterbein “small houses” are unlike any other skilled nursing and rehabilitation environment in Ohio. They are houses designed to be homes for people to live and recover. The focus is on enjoying life in a welcoming home with private suites and home-cooked meals, where residents make their own decisions about personal care and daily schedules.

The Small House Difference

  • Superior caregiver to patient ratio
  • Expert speech, physical & occupational rehab therapy
  • Consistent nursing staff with you every day and night
  • Private suites and baths adjacent to the family room and kitchen
  • Home-cooked meals served family-style; meal options selected by you
  • Real Homes with only 10 residents per home
  • Schedules set by you
  • Families may take part in meals, meal preparation and activities; or host family celebrations.
  • Private medication and supply cabinets in each room.
  • Easily accessible, fenced, and shaded outdoor area. 

The care is personal

Each nurse is a member of an interdisciplinary team, working to coordinate specialized care as prescribed by your physician. Your nurses will:

  • Create an individualized and complete plan of care and help you follow it.
  • Manage, observe and evaluate your care on a routine basis.
  • Help restore your abilities or maintain your current wellness.
  • Advocate for your wellness and dignity.
  • Encourage you to meet your fullest physical, mental, social and spiritual potential.

It takes a special person

Here, nursing is more than scientific and technical skill. It’s a spiritual calling answered with compassion. Skilled nursing is an honored, trusted profession prized highly at Otterbein. Registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and state tested nursing assistants staff our communities, neighborhoods and home health teams.
