Over 25 years of caring.
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, we are 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!
What makes Oak Hill different?
We understand that the care and support that our residents need can be different from one individual to the next. We are proud to offer our residents a 1:8 ratio of staff to residents, which is far higher than the North Carolina state ratio requirement of 1:20 for care communities. Our staff is dedicated to providing the best care and support to each of our residents.
Assisted Living Only
Unlike many communities offering independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care, Oak Hill is assisted living care only. By focusing exclusively on assisted living we provide the care our residents need at a fair price in a residential setting, as opposed to a hospital-like setting.
Privately Owned & Managed
Since opening in 1997, Oak Hill has been privately owned and operated by the same family. The Community sits on land that has been in the family for over 150 years. Further, unlike many communities, Oak Hill is not part of a larger corporate conglomerate. We are proud of our long-standing ties to the area.
Transparent & Reliable Pricing
Oak Hill understands senior care represents a tremendous cost families must carefully budget for. We know many senior care communities have pricing schemes that are difficult to navigate and often result in unpredictable prices. Oak Hill offers transparent and reliable pricing families can understand. Click here for information about our pricing.
