Careers

Thank You to the Staff at Oak Knoll Healthcare Center Thank you for your care and kindness while I was there to begin recuperating from a stroke I had on October 11, 2016...Whatever your role, thank you for your patience when I had a bad day...your strength when I didn’t have any, your encouragement when I had doubts, your “pep talks” when I was discouraged and needed them most, your sense of humor to add some laughs to the day (laughter is the best and cheapest medicine). Some of these may seem like little things to you, but they make the patient feel more like a person who matters instead of just the occupant of a specific bed. I miss your unique personalities now that I’m home. Thank you. I know you were looking out for my best interests while I was at Oak Knoll from October 18 through December 28, 2016. Carolyn S.
