    Prehab Program


    The Oakwood Village Prehab Program was created for individuals considering elective surgery who want to plan for their post-surgery rehab as well.  We’ll help take the mystery out of the rehabilitation process and make your recovery after surgery easier by helping you to plan ahead. A Prehab is offered on the first Thursday of each month alternating between the University Woods and Prairie Ridge Campus.

    Legendary Living


    An evening celebrating the Oakwood Ministry and those who live life to the fullest –- at any age.

    People at every age deserve a legendary life – a life of dignity and full of purpose. That is the belief Oakwood has followed for over 65 years as we welcomed generations of older adults and their families into our doors. Legendary Living will be an extraordinary evening that reminds us age is just a number and it’s never too late to dream. Our featured guest, Jack Salzwedel, is a nationally recognized corporate leader who will share an inspirational message of courage and wisdom about the importance of living life to its fullest. And you will be given the opportunity to create your own “legendary life” as you bid on truly memorable experiences at our auction.

    Your support of this event helps give older adults in our community the opportunity to
    experience the best quality of life possible and receive compassionate care when they
    need it.
