About Us


Oak Hill Assisted Living Community is a privately owned and managed corporation organized under the laws of the State of North Carolina and is licensed through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

Oak Hill offers residents a personal and dignified home away from home. Opened in 1997, Oak Hill Living Center is situated on a beautifully landscaped 16 acre campus—a fourth generation homestead. 

Oak Hill was named because of the beautiful oak trees that line the property. The 42,000 square foot modern one story brick building offers a variety of rooms options ranging from semi-private rooms with half baths to suites with private courtyards.

We are excited about the future of Oak Hill and plan to continue to grow and serve our area by providing a great quality of life for our residents.


Oak Hill Assisted Living Community is staffed by a team of knowledgeable and caring professionals. Before being hired, each candidate is carefully screened and interviewed to ensure he or she is capable and dedicated to meeting Oak Hill’s standard of care.


Further, all staff members undergo a thorough training process and are required to take regular continuing education classes focused on providing the latest and best assisted living care.
