Assisted living at Otterbein Granville provides person-centered care in a home-like environment to residents who may need some assistance with activities of daily living. From rehabilitation services to life-enriching opportunities, we’ll explore what it means to be an assisted living resident at Otterbein Granville.
Who Qualifies for Assisted Living at Otterbein Granville?
Upon admission, new residents are assessed to determine the level of care needed to ensure safety, comfort, and enhanced quality of life. Care is re-evaluated every six months or more frequently if a change in health has occurred. This personalized approach helps each resident to maintain independence, increase self-esteem, and preserve dignity.
Based on their personal assessment, assisted living residents at Otterbein Granville may receive help with bathing, toileting, transfers, or medication management. Three meals are provided each day, along with wellness monitoring by our nursing staff.
What Services are Available to Assisted Living Residents?
Residents in assisted living enjoy private studio apartments in a close-knit community with shared gathering and dining rooms. A dedicated interdisciplinary team takes pride in getting to know each individual, including their hobbies, interests, and needs.
Due to the small size of the assisted living neighborhood, residents also have the opportunity to learn a lot about each other much like a large family. And our life enrichment coordinator customizes an activity program geared toward the preferences of the assisted living residents.
Otterbein Granville’s wheelchair-accessible bus offers weekly shopping and scenic drives in addition to planned trips for various engagements throughout central Ohio. Residents are also welcome to attend events in independent living and take advantage of all the on-campus amenities, including:
- Indoor warm water pool
- Outdoor patio
- Educational programs
- Putting green and bocce court
- Wooded trails
- Fitness center
- Art studio
- Woodworking shop
Open kitchens featuring walk-up counters and coffee/juice bars are available to assisted living residents. Family-style meals include a variety of entreé options along with choices for sides, including soup, salads, vegetables, and desserts. A dietician can also provide consultation for residents requiring special diets.
What are the Benefits of Assisted Living at Otterbein Granville?
There are many benefits to choosing assisted living at Otterbein Granville. In addition to daily housekeeping, nutritious meals, socialization opportunities, welcoming residents, and supportive staff, there are a few features that are frequently overlooked.
Here are other benefits to consider:
- Five-Star Rated. Current independent and assisted living residents receive priority access to our five-star rated rehabilitation and long-term care services. The assisted living apartments are located within the five-star rated, Medicare-licensed health center at Otterbein Granville. This top rating means residents receive exceptional care and have access to an on-site physician and advanced clinical therapy programs such as physical, occupational, speech, and aquatic therapy.
- Memory Support. Memory care support activities are also available and beneficial for residents living with dementia or other memory-related cognitive disorders. Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) is an intergenerational art-making program where volunteer staff members are matched with residents to create art through a directed prompt. Other memory programming includes yoga therapy, java music club, and memory books to help connect with the past.
- Advanced Care. Because Otterbein Granville is a life plan community with advanced levels of care, residents have the opportunity to remain on-campus to receive additional services to meet their needs. And because the apartments are all the same layout in the health center, transitioning to a new apartment for skilled nursing or long-term care tends to be less stressful than relocating to a different community with unfamiliar residents and staff.
