Tradition of Caring and Services
Out of a strong tradition of caring, Oak Hill Assisted Living offers residents a personal, intimate experience that embraces families and friends while providing for independence and privacy. Services are tailored specifically to each resident’s individual needs. As those needs change, staff go the distance with them, changing as their needs change. Services are provided from independent living to end of life care. We care for the whole person- body, mind and spirit.
Families are always welcome and active in planning care for their loved one. Individualized care conferences are held regularly with residents and their families providing dedicated time to discuss resident needs, concerns and services. Our on call nurses are available to residents and staff around the clock.
At the heart of Oak Hill is our strong, core staff of licensed nurses, certified nursing assistants and direct care companions who provide unconditional, expert, loving care. Our homes are owned and managed by nurse practitioner, Pamela Friesen, CNP. Staff receive regular and ongoing training related to resident’s needs and state-of-the-art senior care.
Oak Hill Assisted Living enjoys a stable, core staff with low turnover rate. We exceed industry standards with high staff to resident ratios.
In the final months of mom’s life, I was able to see her daily, often several times a day. Seeing her so often was the greatest gift I could hope for. I came to know most of the staff at Oak Hill. What can I say but you’re the best, the absolute best. Each of you brought your unique personality, love and caring every single day. Mom felt special. The attention she received was comforting to her and the family beyond description. You truly made a difference in her final months. I will not forget your kindness.
