Welcome to Willow Brook at Delaware Run
Willow Brook at Delaware Run, 100 Delaware Crossing West, is off US 36/West William Street, less than two miles from downtown Delaware, Ohio.
The first thing you notice when you turn off the highway into Willow Brook at Delaware Run is the feeling of serene spaciousness and light. You ease down a hill, curve around trees and a stream, pass over a bridge, and view lovely twin-single homes that have lots of space between them, just for breathing room. The neighbors will probably give you a friendly wave.
When you enter the Village Square apartments at Delaware Run you feel you are stepping into a gracious and welcoming place, one that cares first and foremost about you.
Willow Brook at Delaware Run is our newest community. The Village Square opened in the autumn of 2009. Its residents have come from dozens of different states, some to be near family, some just because they like it.
We have so many retired artists and art teachers in the neighborhood that you could almost say Delaware Run is an artists’ colony! A lot of musicians, too. We also have our share of lawyers, ministers, and bankers who simply enjoy the talents of others.
When you join Willow Brook, you enter a community of friends:
We treasure life, but we’re not crazy about leaf raking, snow shoveling or home improvement.
We enjoy a sense of belonging, but we like a little space between our houses.
We value trees, ponds, streams, and deer grazing in the meadow.
We love a variety of good food and lots of choices.
We like moderate prices.
We get a kick out of interested and interesting people.
We know our good health won’t last forever and want to live where health care services are available should we ever need them.
When someone we love enters assisted living or memory care, we like knowing nobody will nickel and dime us to death.
We’re relieved to know that the goal at Willow Brook is to keep us as independent and healthy as possible and to support our desire to remain in our home as we recover from illnesses and as we age.

Willow Brook Christian Communities was founded in 1972 by members of the Churches of Christ in Central Ohio who wanted to expand their ministry to include older adults. They began in Worthington, with a little nursing home on Lazelle Road. Now, forty years later, Willow Brook has three communities, including two continuing care retirement communities that offer comprehensive housing and health services to older adults along the entire continuum of care
In the spirit of Jesus, our Lord, Willow Brook Christian Communities seeks to enable older adults to live to their fullest potential by providing housing, facilities, and services, delivered with compassion and love .
