1. What separates The Village of Oakland Woods from other retirement communities?
The Village staff and residents enjoy a sense of community that revolves around our mission. We are a non-profit, faith based organization. We encourage you to compare our services to any, and all retirement villages including profit organizations. Please consider that once a new resident is welcomed into the Village they become part of an extended family.
2. Will I be losing my freedom by moving into The Village of Oakland Woods?
Although we do have nightly, onsite security and an onsite service coordinator, residents are still able to come and go as they please anytime of the day or night. There are no visiting hours or curfews. A move into the community is often a new beginning followed by a new found freedom. Residents have the time to do what they enjoy!
3. Are housekeeping services included?
The Village of Oakland Woods is an independent living community. Residents maintain the interiors of their apartment or cottage. If housekeeping assistance is needed, contact the onsite service coordinator for options and information.
4. What is the availability of laundry services?
As an independent living community, residents typically have their own washers and dryers; hookups are ready in each apartment and cottage. We also have a laundry room at the Community Center, open 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
5. What if I do not wish or am no longer able to drive?
Many of our residents have their own vehicles. However we do have transportation available to local shopping areas at least once per week. The onsite service coordinator can assist with referral to transportation.
6. What kinds of activities are available?
We have a Community & Fitness Center, Library/reading room, and resident-led groups for crafts, prayer, cards and other activities.
