Housing options abound

The Wapakoneta area offers many options for seniors looking for senior housing, ranging from independent homes to full-time assisted living care.

Otterbein located at 100 Red Oak Drive in Cridersville offers a variety of levels of care, and is considered a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), meaning you can entire into the facility in an independent home and as seniors graduate into needing more assistance there are different levels of care options available.

Director of Marketing at Otterbein, Suzanne Hollenbacher said the concept of Otterbein is that they are a community, so residents can try and live life the way they choose.

"You can live in an individual patio home or an individual ranch house that you rent and you can live life any way you choose," Hollenbacher said. "As you need some assistance in your patio home independently, we have what they call wellness services which helps support you to stay in your home independently as long as possible."
