CHARLES RICE: CAREGIVER
I had my wife at OASIS for two years now.
I had heard about OASIS before. We came and I haven’t been disappointed in the way things have turned out. It’s really been a pleasant experience.
It’s met all of our expectations and every good thing that we were told about.
The real thing that is outstanding about OASIS is the friendliness of the staff, their dedication; they like what they’re doing. I’ve never seen any of them upset with anyone.
Also, the staff turnover is very little. They all seem to like their jobs.
The management is very good. I like that they have a registered nurse on duty at all times.
We hated to leave (OASIS) but my wife got to the stage where they were no longer able to care for her and she needed some additional care.
