OAK CREST DeKalb Area Retirement Center www.oakcrestdekalb.org

“We found a home we value…”

We just spent an afternoon on the balcony of our two bedroom apartment home overlooking a beautiful pond and garden. To say we have it all might be a bit of an understatement. You see, when we were ready to make the retirement decision, we knew we wanted to find a community that felt like home and would Jim & Bev Gillett offer great living accommodations but would also provide a full continuum of care and services. The reality of life is that at some point one or both of us may need some kind of care and support, and we wanted to be sure when that time came we could be together. We also were conscious of the costs associated with retirement living. After visiting other places near our home in Maple Park, we found the costs associated with the care and services didn’t translate into value. So, when we stopped in at Oak Crest we just knew we had come home. Not only were we impressed with the surroundings, the apartments, and services; we found an apartment we love at a price we love even more. Come see for yourself. It really comes down to this: life at Oak Crest translates into value.
