My Mom did several rehab stints at Oak Grove over the years and spent the last year of her life there as a resident. The staff took wonderful care of her and were patient with her throughout each of her stays! They went out of their way during the Covid lockdown to provide ways for us to be in touch with her and provided the nurturing we couldn't. She always raved about how great the food was!
