We understand that our residents present a wide variety of changing senior needs. That’s why our continuum-of-care campus is equipped with trained staff and multiple senior living options.

Working closely with Life Care Center of Elyria, our campus provides assisted living, independent living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, all in one location. Our goal is to promote peace of mind in each resident, as well as their loved ones, knowing that our campus can accommodate care transitions as they present themselves.

The Accushield® 5-Star Safety Rating recognizes senior living and skilled nursing facilities that have prioritized health safety and visitor management through the utilization of advanced sign-in and health screening technology. 5-Star Safety Rated communities prioritize the need to identify, track, and screen all visitors, including family members, friends, third-party caregivers, and other vendors. These communities understand the risk that visitors and third-party care providers can pose for residents and staff and have put in place policies to help mitigate that risk. As a trusted symbol of Safety, the Accushield® 5-Star Safety Rating helps communities increase awareness of the importance of safety through defined visitor management, health screening, entry policies, procedures, and systems.

Meet Our Executive Director

Terri Hodgeman

My educational background is in hospitality and business development. I have spent the majority of my career in health care.

I came to The AbbeWood 26 years ago when our community was only an independent living community. As our campus has added assisted living and a skilled nursing facility, I have been blessed to grow into different positions and opportunities along the way.

Most recently, I spent the last 10 years as the director of Business Development and Admissions at Life Care Center of Elyria. I am glad to be back at The AbbeWood, where I will be able to grow as the Executive Director and build meaningful relationships with the residents here, their families and our associates.

I love hearing the stories our residents tell about their lives, and I am honored to be able to help them write this chapter in their lives.

I truly believe that when our associates are happy to come to work, our residents are also happy to live here! I am committed to ensure our community thrives and remains the retirement community of choice in our area.

I am happy to live in the area in which we serve and feel a true sense of belonging here. My husband and I have a wonderful family that we enjoy having Sunday dinners with each week, and we love being an active part in our children's and grandchildren's lives.
