Otterbein seemed well-organized with a genuine concern for the people and had a variety of activities that seemed well-planned. I think it's recommended by the Alzheimer's Association. They have adult residences for older people, but they also have adult day care and all of that is very attractive to me. They have a reputation for being well-run, they have an involved director and lots of activities. It was very good. I have a lot of trust in the Otterbein organization. They have group activities and individual activities. They can go outside, there are games and can rest when they need to rest.
Upon first entering Otterbein homes I noticed the beautiful landscape that was set before me. Just the outsides of the houses seemed like places where I would even be humbled to live in. I also noticed in the distance was a church. I later learned that it was a Methodist church. When we entered the main office I noticed how well maintained it was. All the workers seemed to be nice and helpful. They showed us the inside of one of the homes. The kitchens were decent enough, enough to get by with. The bathrooms had attachments to help out those who needed help to move around in the bathroom without the assistance of others. The bedrooms were pretty nice, and almost seemed like a nice hotel. We took a tour of the lands around the facility. We saw a golf course next to it and a park as well. The lands seemed to go on and on. A place where it seems if you were unfamiliar with, that you could get lost. The forestry added a majestic feel to the lands. Sadly, not everyone there seemed to be to thrilled. While there was a nice selection of things to do, It just didn't seem like people were truly happy here. Apart of the tour we got to participate in a craft session. It seemed that my Grandparents had fun. But for how long would that be fun. The workers did not mention much more than 5 or 6 other things that they could do. I'd hope that it would change but they made no notion of it. While my Grandparents consider this place as an option, I do not honestly think that they will choose this facility.
