National Church Residences Celebrates the Grand Opening of Inniswood Village

6/26/2018 | Recent News

The newest senior living community from National Church Residences is the organization’s first property developed for middle-income older adults in Westerville. Inniswood Village expands the organization’s mission and ministry by offering this underserved population a range of spacious apartments with a wide array of amenities at affordable rental rates.

The community features a variety of wellness programs, social activities, a heated garage, club rooms, hair salon, bistro and a full service restaurant. New technology and iPads help residents stay in touch with the staff. The system allows them to video chat, check the daily menu, schedule maintenance, contact management, and receive emergency alerts and much more.

Inniswood Village includes 192 apartments: 40 terrace, 80 independent living, 52 assisted living and 20 memory care on 13 acres.

The campus is nestled between the natural woodland of Inniswood Metro Gardens and historic Central College Presbyterian Church in this northern suburb of Columbus. This location provides residents with an abundance of outdoor activities, as well as collaborative opportunities with the church, intergenerational programming with the congregation’s youth, lifelong learning programs and a variety of volunteer opportunities.

Two pioneers were recognized for their contributions to this project, Tom Slemmer, the former CEO at National Church Residences, and Rev. Richard Ellsworth, Pastor Emeritus of Central College Presbyterian Church and former Board member. They had the vision to develop a plan for building a senior community at this location more than a decade ago. They were honored with the naming the Community Room at the Brookwood after Rev. Ellsworth; and the library at the Blendon was named in honor of Tom Slemmer.
