Going Green at Oakleaf Village

At Oakleaf Village, it's not just our logo that's green. It's also an essential part of every apartment and our communities' common areas.

Oakleaf’s apartments were renovated using environmentally-friendly, "green," construction materials that reduce energy consumption, preserve other natural resources and save money over time.

Specifically, Oakleaf’s apartments now have low flow faucets and toilets to reduce water consumption, and ENERGY STAR rated windows, doors and light fixtures. Our common areas do too. The paint and carpeting throughout are "green" with low VOC emissions.

The HVAC systems feature high efficiency, ENERGY STAR rated boilers and air conditioners.

This is one small part of our company’s enterprise-wide commitment to the environment.

Available Care

Whether you or a family member need help taking medicine once a day or more extensive assistance with daily activities, the professional caring staff at Oakleaf Village are there to make life easier for you.

Our staff works with you, your family members and your doctors to determine the level of care needed and the most appropriate setting for you. It could be in independent living or assisted living. The goal is to have residents remain as independent as possible, while providing you with the highest quality of care.

Generally residents who need assistance with daily living tasks such as bathing, dressing and grooming live in assisted living. Oakleaf Village staff members can provide assisted living residents with medication administration, dressing changes and special diets.

Oakleaf Village is licensed under Ohio law as a "residential care facility" and as an "assisted living facility" through the Ohio Department of Health. Learn more.

Before I moved to Oakleaf Village, I'd been in my home for 30 years, but was spending too much time alone. The staff is so warm and friendly and there are always neighbors around. I'm happy I can still tend my own garden. At Oakleaf I am never lonely.

When my husband and I couldn't get around like we used to, we made the decision to move to Oakleaf. I thought it would be a tough transition, but I've found that I can still do all of my favorite activities like gardening and crafts. I also keep myself busy volunteering and working in the Oakleaf Library. I have so many activities to choose from.
- Cindy
Everyone at Oakleaf is very kind. I feel relaxed and comfortable, just like home. I also love the entertainment and singing. We all get to know each other, making Oakleaf more than just a place to live, it's a community and a family. I can't say enough about the staff and how accommodating and friendly they are. At Oakleaf, I am surrounded by friends.
- Floyd
Leaving behind my home of 55 years was not an easy decision. I spent months searching and deliberating, until finally, with my daughter's encouragement—I chose Oakleaf. And now, the only thing I regret is not making the decision sooner. I have everything I need and want, like transportation to church, doctors and shopping. We also go on community day trips! I couldn't be happier with my choice.
