"Oakwood has been a family affair. My mother and sister had been to Oakwood and said the therapy was fantastic. I worked closely with therapy to increase my ability to walk and gain upper body strength. I recuperated quickly and was able to return home independently within a few weeks. This is the best facility around.”

– Joan Kroker

"The therapy department does a great job. All staff members involved are very motivating. I would come back if I needed therapy again.”

– Bernadine Radle

"What a great team to work with! I thank all of you for helping me to rehab and grow so attached to you all!

- Peggy Williams
