Employee Appreciation Week – May 15-19

Our celebration of employees coincides with National Nursing Home Week!

The HR team distributed ice cream to all Oak Hammock employees during a recent appreciation event in the Duckworth Gardens.

The Cultivating Kindness committee has a big week planned for all Oak Hammock employees that will coincide with National Nursing Home Week, May 15-19.

Beginning Monday, May 15, there will be a daily treat for all employees who help make Oak Hammock the best place to work and the best place for seniors to retire. We hope you’ll take some time out of your day to enjoy it and know what a valued member you are of our team.


50/50 Raffle

We will have a 50/50 raffle throughout the week!

Tickets will be available for purchase during each appreciation event.

The winner will be selected during the Kindness Karnival on Friday!
