Testimonials

During the time our mother-in-law/mom was at Oakbrook, she made many friends with the residents as well as the staff. She commented often how she felt she was treated “special”. When I would visit, I could see what she meant. Everyone on staff who entered her room came with a smile and positive attitude – how could she not feel “special”. Seeing that gave me the comfort of knowing that our mom/mother-in-law was in good hands. Thank you for that.
