Don't Take Our Word for it. Hear from People that Call Oak Hammock Home!

I am delighted to do activities I greatly enjoy, such as walking, gardening, cooking, shopping for nothing, or simply DOING nothing. It is lovely to be in command of my time.

One thing that’s unique about Oak Hammock – if you don’t see an activity you’d like to do, you are encouraged to start it up! For example, we have started a wine club where we learn about and try different wines.

– Norm & Linda Cooney

I value most of the community’s diversity; it’s very diverse in terms of professional backgrounds and locations where people are from. So many of us reinvent ourselves and do things differently from what we’ve done in our professional lives.

It is very comforting to know that our future is in good hands and our families will not have to carry the load as we age. It is as though the residents have been carefully selected for characteristics that make the ideal community.

Many people don’t realize the levels of care you have here and that they are all under one roof. It’s set up for an easy transition and very easy to visit others. To me, health care is an essential factor. Oak Hammock has the best-rated Skilled Nursing facility in Gainesville, with all private rooms.

We were drawn to Oak Hammock by its natural setting and its affiliation with the university as well as access to good healthcare and cultural events.

To learn more about Tom and Judy’s perspective, check out their Q&A!

– Tom & Judy Gire

My mother lived to be 98, and she belonged to a CCRC, where she went through independent, assistant, and nursing care. As her caretaker, it made my life so much easier, and I wanted to make it easy on my kids as I aged. When the time was right for me to come, I just knew. I am also crazy about the gators and love Gainesville, and it just seemed to fit. The university town brings with it art, culture, sports, and good healthcare.

To find out more about Pat’s perspective, check out her Q&A!

– Pat Blews

I find it really interesting to talk to people that are really accomplished. I also like the continued learning. It’s more than just the Institute for Learning in Retirement. I would have never gone to the retired Florida faculty meetings but every one of them has a lecture by a subject matter expert about something I do not know about.
