Heartwarming Thank You Notes

Heartwarming Thank You Notes

Oak Park Senior Living staff received a very kind and heartwarming thank you from a resident’s family member following a recent social distance visit:

“I wanted to thank the Oak Park staff for their willingness to arrange a brief outdoor visit for my mom and two of her granddaughters. Travel plans suddenly changed and this was their only opportunity to see her as they were passing through town.

Although I didn’t want my dear mother out in the awful heat for too long, the short time we had was extremely precious to all of us. Seeing her in person again after such a long time brought me to tears, and I know my nieces and mom felt extreme joy being able to visit and talk with each other.

So, although I thanked your staff repeatedly (especially Sue, who called to get special permission for the extra-short visit), I wanted to share again how very much we appreciated it, how much it meant to us, and how much it lifted my mom’s spirits.

I know the COVID constraints are causing a lot of stress and extra work for all of you, but we truly appreciate everything you do. Even these seemingly little things mean the world to us.” -Mary S.

Thank you for the kind words, Mary! We are so happy things worked out and your family had an amazing visit. ❤️

Oak Park Senior Living’s Residence Director, Terri Pratt, received another message of gratitude from a resident’s family member recently:

“My family and I couldn’t be happier about how you and everyone at Oak Park have been handling this crazy COVID situation. We really appreciate the updates and your efforts to keep everyone safe while also understanding their need for socialization. That’s a difficult line to walk, and I want you to know our family thinks you all are handling it well.

Our father, Richard, has loved living in your community, and we appreciate everyone who helps him on a daily basis. Thank you SO much and keep up the excellent work!” -Jeff K.

We always prioritize the safety, well-being, and happiness of our residents at Oak Park, especially during these difficult times. Thank you so much for the lovely message, Jeff!

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! 🎉🎂🎊

Enjoying Root Beer Floats Donated by Local Businesses

May 15th, 2020

Two local Stillwater businesses donated all the fixings for root beer floats. The Lift Bridge Brewery donated handcrafted root beer, and Leo’s Malt Shop donated enough ice cream so that every Oak Park tenant was able to enjoy this yummy treat.

We have been fortunate to have so many businesses, families, and local residents drop off treats, letters, drawings, and more to help make this difficult situation as good as it can be. Our tenants are definitely feeling the love being sent their way from the community.
