“My Mom has been at the independent wing at Dominican Oaks for three years now. She lives with her “husband” in a one room unit. They both love the staff and the residents. I cannot say enough about the Care and love they receive at Dominican Oaks. A special thanks to Deborah & Cathy for continuing to make this a special home for Mom.”
