Meet your Neighbor
My wife Yvonne and I became residents of The Oaks in 2018 after moving here from a different senior living community. We love the bright lobby, how the dining room is open all day long, and the wide variety of activities. We have a pool table, card room, exercise room, poker table, craft room and a bar. My wife gets good care in Garden House (memory care) and has the same caregiver on a regular basis. The office staff, caregivers and food servers are always helpful and call residents by name. I would recommend The Oaks, A Merrill Gardens Community, to anyone or their loved ones.
