Assisted Living Reviews for Oak Park Village at Slidell

February 02, 2012

By IvyFisher

I am/was a resident of this facility

June 2012 makes 6 years that I have resided at Live Oak Village of Slidell. I am 93 years young. It was my decision to live here. I had the opportunity to live with my daughter, but I prefer my independence. Live Oaks allows me to have my own independence. My family is happy I am here. They know I am being taken care of. The chef is very conscientious of the specialized diet I require. My room is always kept clean and I appreciate the fact that my laundry is washed for me. I am happy to be here and happy with everyone here; particularly the staff. The staff appears to always be happy and in a good mood each day. I enjoy all the activities and participate in as many as I am able. Though I am mostly independent, if an occasion arises where I need assistance, I simply push my call button and a care manager comes right away to assist me. I love my life here.

I visited this facility

My dad, G. DeMen lived in the facility for four years until his death in October 2011. When we researched this area for places for Dad to live, he was with me and he chose Live Oak Village. The week of his death, he asked me to let everyone know how much he appreciated the excellent care, the love, the concern and the respect he was always shown. As his daughter, I appreciate everything they did during his final days but most appreciate how much he enjoyed the last four years of his life. He went on every outing, he attended every gathering and function and there were so many of them all the time. He laughed, he played, he enjoyed all that Live Oak offered him. In his words, my dad said, "Living here is a blessing and I thank God for this blessing". It was a blessing for me to see my dad this content, this happy in his final years. Thank you Live Oak!!!!
