Activities are an essential part of the lives of our residents at Oakview Heights. We have a complete staff of activity professionals whose main focus is to encourage our residents to be active every day.
Our most popular activities include bingo, singing, visits from children, a variety of church services, and Bible studies with local churches. Special events such as National Nursing Home Week and our Fall Festival help enliven the atmosphere. These and other special events are always fun filled!
Our activity professionals concentrate on the individual needs and desires of each resident. Some residents do not want to go to group activities and may prefer one on one activities, book reading programs, listening to books on audio tape, or other activities that the resident chooses.
Oakview Heights also has its own local radio program each Friday morning at 8:35 a.m. on WYNG 94.9 in Mt. Carmel to keep the community informed of activities that are taking place at Oakview Heights. We encourage the entire community to be involved at Oakview!

We realize that social interaction with friends and family outside of Oakview is critical to our resident's well-being. We do not restrict our residents to visiting hours. However, we do respect the wishes of our residents to determine who may visit and when. We are committed to all of our patients and insist that family and friends who come to visit must respect the rights of others and ask that they not interfere in the rest and welfare of our other residents. Oakview will make reasonable accommodations to allow for visitors on the resident's terms.
