Located in a tranquil suburban setting—but just a stone’s throw from downtown Sylvania with all its shopping and dining opportunities, entertainment, and rich cultural attractions—Sunset Retirement Communities’ Sylvania campus has plenty to offer older adults who are seeking a vibrant environment to call home as well as the ability to choose different levels of care as needed.
Older adults who could benefit from assisted living, health care, or memory care will have their unique needs met at Sunset Village. Featuring neighborhood-like floor plans, beautifully appointed common areas, and attractive gardens and courtyards, Otterbein Sunset Village provides a true sense of community. Other amenities that help residents and their loved ones feel right at home include a wellness center, a full-service barber and beauty salon, a private dining room for special gatherings, and a sweet shop.
“What’s more, many current Sunset Village employees have worked at the facility since its doors first opened in 2002. That degree of longevity not only speaks volumes about the working atmosphere at Sunset Village, but also ensures residents and their loved ones are surrounded by plenty of friendly, familiar faces as they go about their day,” says Gayle Young, Director of Marketing, Communication and Public Relations for Sunset Retirement Communities.
Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village
Also located on Sunset’s Sylvania campus is Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village, a community for older adults who are seeking an independent, maintenance-free lifestyle. As part of the Sunset Village Life Plan Community, Fieldstone Villas (formerly called a CCRC) features several different villa styles to suit different tastes. Ranging in size from just over 1,200 square feet to 1,800 square feet, each beautiful, barrier-free home includes a full kitchen with full-size appliances, two bedrooms, two baths, and a gas fireplace. All the villa homes also feature a two-car garage, with the exception of the smallest floorplan, which has a one-car garage.
Along with all these amenities, Fieldstone residents can expect their monthly fee to cover all aspects of home maintenance, both inside and outside, including lawn care and snow removal, preventive maintenance, appliance repair and other repairs associated with home ownership, and even bi-monthly housekeeping. Residents also enjoy access to the community’s clubhouse, which features an indoor swimming pool, an area for exercising, chef-prepared dinners served to residents Monday through Friday, and ample opportunities to gather and socialize with friends and family.
Launched in the fall of 2016, Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village proved to be even more popular than expected. “The original villas filled up more rapidly than we anticipated, so additional villas were constructed in subsequent phases to meet the overwhelming demand and ensure older adults in our area have the opportunity to experience the flourishing, maintenance-free, independent lifestyle that Fieldstone Villas has to offer,” Young states.
Last but certainly not least, located on the north side of Sunset’s Sylvania campus is a state-of-the-art rehab center, offering comprehensive physical-, occupational-, and speech-therapy services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. “Providing both inpatient and outpatient rehab can be very beneficial to clients, as it gives them the option to begin their recovery in the inpatient rehab program and then progress to the outpatient option in the same facility and under the care and guidance of the therapy team they’ve come to know and trust,” Young comments.
The rehab center’s features and amenities include a 6,000-square-foot gym area with top-of-the-line equipment, a SwimEx therapy pool, a mobility courtyard, a life skills apartment to help clients transition back home smoothly, and private treatment rooms. The mobility courtyard includes varying grades of surface, allowing clients to test their gait on the types of surfaces they’ll need to navigate on a day-to-day basis. This area also includes a non-operating car to help clients work on the skills necessary to transfer in and out of a vehicle safely.
Furthermore, the rehab center is pet friendly to help clients feel even more at home and offers private suites with WI-FI access as well as personal-concierge-like services for clients who stay at the facility during their rehab.
Most importantly, Sunset’s therapy team is poised to meet a wide variety of rehabilitation needs—ranging from orthopedic, neurological, cardiac, or cardiopulmonary issues to management of post-surgical pain and chronic diseases such as diabetes and congestive heart failure. The team also includes a therapist who is LSVT certified to work with those affected by Parkinson’s disease.
