Careers

My cousin had exceptional care from the entire staff at Oak Knoll. The quarterly progress reports were both informative and helpful. The nurses on her floor were marvelous and always added enough humor to make me feel good after visiting her. Oak Knoll is a great Nursing Home and Healthcare Center and I would recommend it to everyone!
