Grand Opening Event
Oakwood Assisted Living
LIVE THE GOOD LIFE
Opened in 2004 and completely renovated in 2010, Oakwood Assisted Living is a warm and cozy community designed to promote creativity and independence within a safe and loving environment. The new and improved Oakwood provides first-class Stephenville Assisted Living and Memory Care—we would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!
REDISCOVER PEACE AND INDEPENDENCE
There’s plenty to do at our Oakwood Assisted Living facility, where each resident’s wants and needs are carefully tended to in an atmosphere dedicated to the closeness of family and friends. Residents enjoy walking under the shade of the pecan trees in our two expansive courtyards, which also serve as venues for barbeques, parties and activities on nice days. Residents enjoy the view of the birds and flowers in the courtyard from inside our large, elegant dining room, where our chef prepares fresh, home-cooked meals in a restaurant-like setting. The many activity spaces include a library and video room, a large and cozy living room with a fireplace, a beauty salon and barbershop, many sitting rooms and a spa room with a Jacuzzi.
WE’LL TAKE YOU THERE
With its convenient location just an hour southwest of Fort Worth, there’s plenty of fun to be had in the Stephenville community. All of our Oakwood Senior Living residents are treated to shopping trips, country rides and visits to local attractions. Or, they can simply enjoy a night out to a local restaurant with transportation provided by friendly staff. And we don’t just go to parades and events— Oakwood residents are often featured in the parades and they participate in many local events.
NEARBY ATTRACTIONS IN STEPHENVILLE INCLUDE:
- The Cowboy Capital of the World Museum (There are more world-champion cowboys located in and around Stephenville than any other place in the world!)

CARE THAT’S ALWAYS THERE
With separate Stephenville Assisted Living and Memory Care communities, Oakwood Assisted Living is ideal for aging comfortably without disrupting residents’ lives with a move. Our Stephenville Memory Care and Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that licensed nursing staff are available 24 hours a day and an emergency call response and security system is in place for residents with dementia. Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Nurses and resident assistants are always available to assist with medication administration and the activities of daily life. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve at our Oakwood Senior Living facility.
WORRY-FREE LIFESTYLE WITH JUST A SIMPLE LEASE
While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well-being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease. Our Oakwood Assisted Living community has 23 studio suites and 17 one-bedroom suites. The Oakwood Memory Care neighborhood has 11 private suites and three semi-private suites.
Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.
Dining at Oakwood
Live Well, Dine Well
Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.
Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

STOP DREAMING—START DOING!
Senior Living communities thrive because many of our residents are curious, interesting individuals who love to collaborate with their neighbors and our staff.

Testimonials for Oakwood
“My mother has dementia and lives with my husband and me. After several visits to Oakwood, at different times of the day, we decided to take advantage of their Respite Care program. Wise choice! My mother and I needed a break from each other, but I also needed to know Mother was safe and content. In the process of checking out Oakwood, being interviewed to assess my mother’s needs, getting my mother settled in, and following up after her stay, I had personal interactions with seven different staff members in various positions and all were professional, competent, and compassionate. I found them easy to understand and knew my concerns were important to them. No one appeared to be “in educated”, as mentioned in another review. Not everything was perfect and I learned some things I need to do differently next time I need a break, but it was a good experience for both of us. My mother needed more care than originally thought, but Oakwood took care of it and only charged me the original price stated. I was very impressed with that! Mother was happy when she got home, but I expect her to be fine when we take another break and she goes to “the hotel for people with dementia”.”
“Great facility, very accommodating staff. Administrator is a very friendly person and always speaks to everyone.”
