Resident Review

"My twin sister and I love living at Oak Park Place, sharing a quiet two bedroom apartment. We have all the conveniences we need which include great appliances and a large laundry room with storage space. I'm thrilled to see how residents look after one another; like a family. I knew my sister would be very safe at Oak Park Place, while I was away caring for my daughter in Ohio. The staff is most pleasant and eager to help when we have a need. We have a dependable repair man to rely on and we have free transportation for our local doctor appointments. I just don't think a person could find a better place to live; my sister and I just love it here."
