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.

Adult Day Care

Personalized attention to support social, physical and emotional well-being in a structured setting. Seniors spend daytime hours at the Arms and return home in the evenings.


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.
