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.

We moved my parents into Quail Ridge a month ago and they have been SO happy. The whole experience has exceeded our expectations! All of the staff members - from the front desk to the nurse/aides to housekeeping and maintenance to dining room - go out of their way to speak to my parents and help them in any way. They greet them by name and they were doing this when they had only been there a few days!They have a two bedroom unit which is spacious and one of the biggest Assisted Living units we looked at in OKC. There is a lot of storage and they were able to fit in most of their furniture. They LOVE the food in the dining room. So do all of the residents we have talked to. They have specials at lunch and dinner but you can also order from an extensive menu. Breakfast is served all day. Another thing we like is that the dining room is open from 7 AM until 7 PM so people can eat when they are hungry. They also have a Happy Hour with wine and appetizers Monday through Friday. Monthly they have theme dinners and parties. There are dozens of activities and the show movies several nights a week.There is a fitness center which is run by Angela who is always so encouraging to all residents. She has gotten my dad up and moving again and we just can't believe it!When we were considering Quail Ridge, we toured other Assisted Living facilities in OKC and Edmond. One thing that particularly impressed us is management's philosophy: "The answer is yes... now what is the question?" They found a way to accommodate all of our needs and not being run by a big corporation has definitely made a difference.They are adding on to their building and will open a Memory Care unit in October. Then there will be an additional new wing next year with underground garage, tornado safe room, and swimming pool.Many of the residents are still quite sharp and very active. That was another big plus to us. It is not a typical assisted living! We would highly recommend Quail Ridge to anyone.
My, it has been adventure for me. The five week stay at Bellevue was awesome. I have referred to it as the Spa.All of you were just wonderful in my care and healing from this ankle surgery. Each and every one of you made me feel special and I know that was why I was able to progress so well. I did not know what to expect but I know I needed help and could not get that at home. Because of you all I did not get in any hurry to come home. You were my family and I will be forever thankful for you. I Praise God for leading me to Bellevue. All of the Aids, Nurses, Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist were excellent.I continue with Physical Therapy at home. My third cast is purple and is a walking cast. That will come off May fifth and I will then get a walking boot. This has been a LONG recovery but because of the Bellevue staff it has not been dreadful. I like challenges and this certainly has been one.It is my pleasure to tell people how wonderful you are and that if they need your care that they will be welcome and cared for one hundred percent.Thank each one of you and I know that God Blesses each one and I continue to ask for continued peace and patience for you. I know that God guides you and gives you the loving hearts that you possess.
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.
Moving into the Village at Oakwood has benefited my husband and me all the way around. It is a beautiful place to live in. The administrator has helped me to get multiple service and into other programs that have been helpful to us. I was having financial trouble and the administrator recommended me to a rep-payee service. The rep-payee service takes care of my finances, and keep me current on my bills. I have referred them to people because they do a great job. It was becoming difficult for me to manage my medication. I no longer worry about getting all my medication because the staff at the Village at Oakwood assists me with my daily medications. My biggest relief of all is I no longer have to worry about cooking, the Village at Oakwood provides my meals. Activities are always in session, the administrative staff is very helpful, and the residents are friendly. I really like how the administration solves all my problems.
We admitted my mother to Bellevue Nursing Center after her surgery so that she could receive physical rehabilitation. The care could not have been better! My mother was greeted at the door and escorted to her room by one of the administrative staff. Her room was spacious and clean. She was introduced immediately to her nursing staff and a member of the kitchen came by and spoke with my mother regarding her dietary preferences. They even cooked my very picky mother alternative meals when she wanted them. I found this nursing home to be far superior to any of the others I've seen. I will not hesitate to use this facility again if we need it. I also recommend this facility to anyone I know who might need to place their loved one in a nursing home. I never had a moment of worry with the Bellevue staff looking after my mom. Thank you Bellevue for all you do!!!
My mother had a wonderful experience at Bellevue. We chose this facility after our mother had an illness that resulted in a surgery. She didn't bounce back from that surgery very quickly and ended up needing physical therapy and skilled care which was a whole new world for us! We were nervous but the minute my mom entered the doors she was greeted, shown her (very nice) room, and then quickly asked about dietary needs and preferences. She ended up spending about a month here, which included Thanksgiving day. The facility had a nice dinner for the residents but we chose to also bring her some food from our meal---all in all, the staff helped my mother have a good holiday despite the circumstances. I would highly recommend this Rehab center and my mother certainly does! She hasn't stopped talking about it yet.
My mother spent 2 weeks in Bellevue's rehabilitation center after knee replacement surgery. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of her care from beginning to end. The facilities were very clean and beautifully decorated. The staff and owners did everything to make her feel welcome and at home. The nurses and physical therapists were all very friendly, encouraging and genuinely cared about her recovery. The food was great and they even gave her a bath everyday. One of the family members on staff came by and checked on my mom at least once a day and if she requested anything extra, they made sure it was taken care of. When she left Bellevue she was well on her way to full recovery and felt confident that she could manage at home. I would recommend Belleve to anyone!
my father in law was readmitted in january of this year for the second time. he was not doing well at all and actually the doctors at the hospital said he would probably have to stay in the nursing home IF he even made it at all. the people at bellevue was encouraging, listened, offered assurance and comfort. at the end of this month we will be taking him home. therapy was awesome working with him.The nurses are awesome. when he admitted he had wounds from the hospital and the wound nurse jumped right in there and the wounds healed quickly. it could have been a completely different scenario for us as a family but it isnt. they take time with him and are ever so patient with him and us the hovering family members. thank you Bellevue.
I had to admit my father for physical therapy. This is the first time I had to do this and it was all so confusing. From the moment I walked in and followed dad down to his room I felt like a burden had been lifted. Everybody was helpful. We did not sit anywhere for long. Therapy walked right in and did an evaluation and off he went to therapy. Nursing aides were great. They knew dad and what his favorite foods which way he liked to lie down and even his favorite tv shows. The only thing I saw that I did not like for me personally was he had a room mate but dad did not seem to mind. Dad said he likes the food and everybody helped him and he was happy doing therapy. I really couldn't ask for more. Thanks for taking care of my dad.
