Whittier Place Assisted Living Center

On May 25, 2014, my wife, Janice H., passed away at the age of 49, due to complications from a 28 year battle with multiple sclerosis. She had been under the great care of Oak Knoll Healthcare Center for over eleven years. She was treated with the utmost respect and dignity that could ever be expected. Some of the staff went above and beyond to make her life as comfortable as possible. I have to write you this letter to tell you how much my family and myself appreciate what Oak Knoll did for Janice in helping her ”live” at Oak Knoll for eleven years. Thank you for providing a safe and comfortable environment for Janice. Sincerely, Harold C. H. III

Welcome to Whittier Place Assisted Living Center

Whittier Place Assisted Living Center is a comfortable, elegant facility where gracious living is an everyday experience. Whittier Place is an 80 bed facility situated on lovely grounds in scenic Columbia County, in a setting that has been described by residents as “pleasant and comfortable.”  In addition to the Adult Home and Assisted Living Program, our sister facility, Whittier Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing Center, is conveniently located on the same site.

The Adult Home setting provides the opportunity for the resident to remain as independent as possible while providing the necessary support services.

Whittier Place is housed in a spacious modern one story building with all the comforts of home.  Many services are provided for residents to enjoy a carefree lifestyle while remaining as independent as possible. The facility offers two types of rooms: Private and Semi-Private.  Each resident may decorate the room as desired including pictures, knick-knacks and other personal items that will help them to feel right at home.

Our Philosophy.

The professional staff at Whittier Place are dedicated to providing high quality care.  It is our goal to open the doorways to a functional and fulfilling lifestyle for each and every one of our residents.  Our friendly staff of experts treat all residents with the utmost respect and dignity.  The atmosphere at Whittier Place is warm and family-like; it is a place that you can call “home.”
