Oakwood Specialty Care is a relaxing and refreshing senior health care center that offers privacy, dedicated care in a family-like setting. Located at the edge of Albia, our residents enjoy the serene, country-like setting along with the deer, turkey and pheasant.

Our staff is highly experienced and very attentive to each of our residents, many of whom spend only a few short weeks with us while rehabilitating from illness or injury, or while on respite away from family. Other long-term residents get to know our staff and become our extended family.

Highly-trained professionals in physical therapy and occupational therapy work one-on-one with each resident using state-of-the-art therapy tools and programs striving toward the goal of increased independence, minimizing pain and eliminating other risks factors such as falling.

Others on our long-standing staff are responsible for providing lots of social interacting whether it is a quite conversation out on our new back patio or gazebo, joining other residents to hear the latest in the newspaper over cookies and coffee, or trips to Wal-Mart or the casino in Osceola. Oakwood Specialty Care is frequently the site for family and community gatherings such as our annual ice cream social, Father’s Day cook-out or classic car and antique tractor show.

Friendly staff and a continuum of care characterize Oakwood Specialty Care. Everyone, from residents, families and volunteers, relies on our ability to deliver quality compassionate care.

We would love it if you stopped by to visit!
