Oakwood Estates

is committed to providing our residents with a superior quality of skilled care. We offer a multitude of both short-term and long-term care solutions to meet you or your loved one’s needs. Our newly remodeled facility has many in-house skilled care options, and we provide residents transportation to their outside doctor’s appointments as needed.

Long-Term Nursing Care

If your loved one is no longer able to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) independently, the long-term nursing care at Oakwood Estates may be your best solution. Even if they can still do some or all of their ADLs independently, you may be concerned about their decline in health, decline in memory, increased fall risk, and decreased socialization.

We have designed Oakwood Estates Nursing and Rehab to be a comfortable home away from home that offers the safety, security, and skilled care required for a superior quality of life—and peace of mind for family and friends.

Family and friends are welcome to stop by and visit any time you like!

Therapy And Rehab

Therapy and rehabilitation is often required after accident, injury, and surgery. We offer our valued residents a complete range of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and respiratory therapy.

Our in-house therapists are available 7 days a week to ensure each resident’s comprehensive plan of care is top priority.

Wound Care

We take a holistic approach to wound care, which requires input from multiple members of our skilled team. We collaborate with each resident’s Primary Care Physician to ensure that follow-up care is coordinated after discharge.

Our interdisciplinary team, Wound Physician, Licensed Dietician, Social Worker, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, and Nursing staff consistently review the individualized plan of care.

Our signature holistic approach has reduced average recovery time and stay by 2 to 8 weeks.

Memory Care

Our team of memory care specialists is committed to providing residents with all levels of cognitive challenges with the highest quality of care. We offer two fully secured units, so residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s have the freedom to participate in daily activities without worry of roaming outside of their secured areas.

We focus on education and therapeutic programming designed to create a “habilitation” model of memory care. We have found great success with this approach, and that it helps to maintain and prolong current cognitive skills and abilities.

We provide a secondary daily activity schedule within our secured memory care units. This ensures the activities are engaging and fun for residents with cognitive challenges.

Our skilled memory care offers a warm, comfortable, and safe environment while still providing a home-like providing.

Hospice Care

Through partnerships with local hospice care providers, our hospice services are designed to provide patients with the combined medical, psychological, and spiritual support they require during their final days.We work closely with each resident’s primary care physician to ensure pain management and overall comfort.

Family and friends can visit any time, and rest assured their loved one is receiving the comfort care they require at this delicate time.

Respite Care

We understand your need for care is not always long-term. Whether your private caregiver is out of town, the family caregiver is going on a vacation, or you simply need a break from your loved one’s increased need for hands-on care—we offer respite care as a safe solution for your short-term needs.

Although the stay is short, we will create a personalized care plan for each resident, allowing you the peace of mind you require so that you can enjoy your much needed time off.

Cardiac Care And Rehabilitation

Cardiac conditions are some of the most common health concerns for both our short-term and long-term residents. It is for this reason that Oakwood Estates Nursing and Rehab has partnered with My Total Life Care to provide specialized cardiac care. With their innovative remote technology, we are able to monitor cardiac concerns in real-time, as well as provide our residents hand-on care from cardiac specialists.
