Testimonials

What a perfect gift! The sound of the wind chimes will remind me of Mom’s singing! I wanted to be sure you and your staff know how much we appreciate the kind and gentle care Mom received while she was an Oakbrook resident. She often told us how kind everyone there was to her. When she came to Oakbrook, she seemed to come back to life after the previous three months when she was in such deep mourning for Dad that we hardly knew her. However, she really perked up while in your care, and our family was able to truly enjoy her last two months. We all have such fond memories of our visits with her there. It was so nice to see how your activity employees got her involved in Bingo, singing, etc. Thanks to you and your staff for all you did to improve Mom’s quality of life those last two months.
