Since opening in 2014, Oaks Retirement Village has completed a significant renovation and new construction to meet the needs of the local community and senior population. Completed by local companies under the direction of local ownership, the new addition provides beautifully appointed suites of exceptional quality to enhance the already beautiful existing home.

A growing community of residents leads to community employment opportunities. The Oaks Retirement Village team supports each resident with exceptional services ranging from activities, to housekeeping and laundry, to dietary, to personal care and nursing. Oaks Retirement Village is proud to have created meaningful employment for over 75 members of the local community. General Manager Andrew McClintock explains, “We hire only the most caring and best staff and train them to provide resident-centred services no matter where residents are on the care continuum. We have many residents who are very independent, but take comfort in the fact that we are here for them if and when they need us.”

More recently, many staff have undergone additional training through a unique partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society of Chatham-Kent to better serve residents of the new Memory Care Home Area, a secure section of Oaks Retirement Village which specializes in supporting and caring for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. Resident Engagement Coordinator Tina deBakker explains, “Our staff, residents, and families are encouraged to ‘Embrace the Moment’ and approach each day with the promise to make all interactions positive and meaningful, one moment at a time.”

A full schedule of activities, numerous beautifully appointed amenity spaces, and luxurious suites combined with highly trained and compassionate staff, Oaks Retirement Village truly offers something for everyone.
