“As you grow older, there is less time to do what you'd like because there is so much time required of you when you live in your own home. Here, I can relax and forget about those "responsibilities" that go along with home ownership and spend my days how I choose.”

Darlene D.

“There are so many things I like about living here. I feel very safe here. I look forward to our times in the dining room when we can meet new people and get to know our friends better.”

Lois E.

“I moved to Oakwood for human companionship. I was living out in the country and it got very lonely. I wanted to be with people, and I found what I was looking for here.”

Sharon H.

“We looked in other parts of the country and we found Oakwood to be the best value. We're pleased with the services and the people here.”

Oliver J.


Ginny N.

“It's not things that make our lives interesting, it's people. The people at Oakwood are so nice because they're willing to share, care and they always have a smiling face. That's what makes Oakwood such a nice place to live - the people.”
