I am worried that no one will come to visit me.

Your friends and family will come to visit when you tell them how wonderful Oak Brook Care is. Everyone wants to see what a great place looks like in case they need to go someday. Invite them to visit and tell us they are coming. We will make sure you are brought cookies and drinks to enhance the visit.

We encourage visiting for many reasons but the most important is that it makes you feel good and it’s a great way for us to show off our facility. We are proud of what we do and how we do it.

How often may I have visitors?

You may have visitors any time of day. Our buildings are open 24 hours a day, and your visitors are welcome to come when it is convenient for both of you.

Can my family members stay overnight?

Yes, family members may stay overnight with the approval of the administrator.  Please let your nurse know if you have a family member who would like to stay overnight, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

What types of gifts or items should visitors bring?

Flowers and plants are always a welcome sight.

Feel free to bring magazines, newspapers, and newsletters that are regular reading materials at home. Familiar routines from home will help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your recovery.

Food often has healing properties as well. Bringing a favorite coffee or muffin for your loved one is a thoughtful gift. Families frequently gather for a group meal which we can provide. Pizza or a takeout meal is also appropriate.
