COLUMBUS — Two Paulding County assisted living facilities, The Gardens of Paulding and the Antwerp Manor, have been listed as one of the top 25 top residential centers in the State of Ohio.
The Gardens of Paulding was listed at 14 with a score of 98.2. The Antwerp Manor took the number 22 spot on the survey with a 97.8.
The honor came as a result of a residents survey conducted by Ohio’s Department on Aging. Residents rated their satisfaction with their facility’s environment, activities, administration, direct care/nursing assistants, laundry, meals and dining, social services and therapy, as well as general satisfaction.
Trained interviewers met face-to-face with a sample of residents at each facility to fill out the survey.
Two Van Wert County nursing homes were also named in the top 25 nursing homes category. They were Vancrest of Convoy and the Sarah Jane Living Center in Delphos.
