I have been here 6months now. It has really changed my life by coming here, before I was living by myself for 8years.I currently owned my own house and the house needed a lot of repairs that I was unable to do at the time. I was going to get apartment but due to money situations a friend had advised me about coming to the Village at Oakwood. It was shocking to go from alone to come in here. It has been easy to meet people here. Peoples names started to become common after couple weeks. I switch up seats to talk to other residents that I may not know. The biggest surprise was when I walked in and it was like a hotel in the lobby and there was no smell and no nursing home environment. I looked at apartment and it was all neat, clean with neat carpet, and fresh new paint on the walls. My friends surprised me an decorated my apartment. The apartments a roomy I do not feel crammed it is like a big house convent and comfortable. The hallways are always nice an clean. I am a active church person that attends music hall, Salvation Army, and helps with the food bank giving out food to those in need. I am able to walk without assistance. Everything here is very convent and especially the location to get to different places to eat, shop, and bank. The Village at Oakwood lets me stay active and no restrictions. I like how it offers good after hour entertainment during the weekends and during the week days. The food here is very tasty! The nursing staff is super they give me my medicine on time and make sure that I get it. Often times when I lived by myself I didn’t take my medicine properly. I want to say that as being a man it is a great blessing to have housekeeping to do my laundry and clean my room and to a man that is something that is a true blessing I have this done once a week. I am able to do my own laundry and sometimes do still do my own laundry but to know that I have this service is truly a blessing. The marketing director told me up front all the information about the Village at Oakwood so I didn’t have any surprises. I could not have picked a better place to live.

Bellevue was an amazing facility overall. I was treated incredibly well by the majority of the staff. I lived in a private room for four months during my recovery from a major climbing accident. Although I was not the normal patient because I was the youngest patient by 30 years, I required the same types of care. I was administered medications, aided in bathing and most personal care actions, fed, and retaught to walk by their physical therapy staff. The facility was kept very clean, the. Food was actually pretty good and they made activities available to keep the patients entertained. There were a few instances where I had issues with specific personnel or equipment. The administration in charge was very accessible and extremely helpful. They rectified any and all issues I had in a timely manner. The bed was very comfortable and a second bed was provided for my family that wanted to stay there with me. There were several lovely interior courtyards easily accessible to the patients. Meals could be taken in room or in the cafeteria. Snacks were provided throughout the day by request and a nutritionist checked with each patient to ensure their nutritional needs were taken care of.
