Senior Living

Designed for seniors who want to live independently in an active community with freedom, choices and security. Leave the burdens of household maintenance behind and enjoy a fulfilling life.

Short Term Stays

A Short Term Stay or Respite is a great way to sample life in our community. Stay in a fully furnished apartment and enjoy retirement living anywhere from a weekend to a month, or longer.

Restaurant Dining

Meals are provided in our full-service restaurant. We have an extensive menu designed with more than 40 choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Residents dine at their leisure and sit at the table of their choice.

A community that’s full of life, service, and spirit.

The Oak Park Arms began with the vision of two military veterans who wanted to create active retirement living in a community that would stand apart from others in both service and spirit.  That vision and their experience of more than thirty years with senior communities served as the foundation in developing The Oak Park Arms, an exceptional senior community in an ideal setting.

Privately owned and managed since the beginning. Long-term staff members pour their passion into the community.
