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!

Last week, we happily welcomed our friends Amy and Adam back to Oak Park Senior Living for a hallway concert! Residents enjoyed music from either inside their apartments or out in the hallway. Everyone had a blast listening and singing along to some of their favorite tunes. Thank you, Amy and Adam, for putting on a great show! ???

We had a VERY special day here at Oak Park Senior Living recently with a drive-by parade honoring one of our community members, Floyd.
Not only was it his 93rd birthday, we were also celebrating his 55 years of volunteer service with the Maplewood Oakdale Lions Club. Surrounded by friends and family, Floyd watched as Lions Clubs members from all across the state drove by to honor and thank him for his generosity and hard work. KSTP even came by to cover the heartwarming story. Watch the news clip below and please join us in congratulating and wishing a very happy birthday to our friend, Floyd!Read More
