Santa’s Special Visit & More Holiday Fun

January 8th, 2021

Santa and his helpers left the North pole a bit early to pay a special visit to the residents of Oak Park Senior Living. They brought candy and spread lots of joy and laughter as they made their way around the entire building! 🎅

Oak Park Senior Living tenant, Marj A., allowed us to display her very impressive Christmas village for all to enjoy. Marj has been collecting her villages for many years and each piece has a special meaning to her. Since Christmas had to be a bit different this year, she wanted to share the joy the villages bring her with everyone. Thank you, Marj!

Residents from our Garden Cove apartments spent one December afternoon frosting, decorating, and eating delicious Christmas cookies. Everyone loved sharing their favorite Christmas cookie recipe, as well as a few baking mishaps they’ve had over the years!

Happy 100th Birthday to Charlie H.

June 15th, 2020

Saturday, June 13 was a very special day here at Oak Park Senior Living: One of our residents, Charlie H., turned 100! To celebrate and honor this monumental occasion, Charlie’s friends and family put on a car parade just for him. He had so much fun waving as the line of cars filled with loved ones drove by.

Charlie, a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War, says his secret to a long and happy life is letting go of the things you can’t change and focusing on the present and enjoying every minute. What great advice from an amazing man!

Thank you to everyone who helped organize and participated in this incredibly touching celebration. Please join us in wishing a happy 100th birthday to Charlie! ???
