What is the Difference Between Independent Living and Assisted Living?

Here at OrrVilla, we are a community. Although we have two independent and one assisted living senior apartment communities, our residents interact in common areas, during activities, and during community events. Our well-lit campus is located near Aultman Orrville Hospital.

What Is Independent Living?

Independent living lets you enjoy maintenance-free living. We mow your lawn and shovel the snow. If your stove stops working, we’ll repair or replace it. Residents live independently.

At our two independent living communities – Locust Court and Evergreen Place – you can enjoy weekly planned activities, and socializing with neighbors. Try the monthly carry-in dinners with a program, participate in Bible study or take the bus to Orrville.

At Locust Court, your spacious duplexes also have garages. A few have full basements. Should you need more care, Locust Court residents have the first option to move to Maple Terrace, our assisted living community.

At Evergreen Place, affordable senior living with subsidized housing apartments with all the amenities of home.

What Is Assisted Living?

If your loved one needs a little help, OrrVilla’s assisted living community, Maple Terrace provides personal care by professionals who help with activities of daily living (ADLs).

ADLs include medication assistance and reminders, wellness checks, bathing, help getting to activities, dressing and more.

Care is personalized to your senior’s needs. If they ask for medication reminders but not help bathing, they receive only what they want and need. And no one enters their apartment without permission.

Maple Terrace residents receive an assessment based on information from the resident, their healthcare team, and the family. Once the assessment is finished, we will design a care plan personalized to their wants and needs.

Residents are provided with the same home maintenance services as those at Locust Court and Evergreen Place. In addition, they receive meal service, housekeeping, linen cleaning, wellness checks, an emergency call system and scheduled transportation. Care is personalized to each resident’s needs and preferences, from putting more ice in their water to reminding them about a favorite activity. Additional services are available.
