Oakwood Hills is an active retirement community in the scenic Chippewa Valley of Eau Claire, WI. Here, senior living is enhanced by the holistic benefits of nature. At the back of the grounds is a wooded lot where you can spot doe, rabbits and red-tail hawks. With the community sitting along a main road that provides easy access to downtown, independent living is not only comfortable here but convenient.
Meet friends for lunch at any of the surrounding cafes. Or spend an afternoon immersed in a movie at the Oakwood Mall, located right across the street. The community is also a 15-minute drive from the city’s best parks. Enjoy a baseball game or a serene walk around Braun’s Bay at Carson Park. Downtown’s Phoenix Park is also a popular spot for events like farmers markets and concerts.
Oakwood Hills is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification and the 2019 Great Place to Work certification.

The chef makes just about everything homemade, and is incredibly accomplished. He won a major food and wine pairing competition in California, covering seven different wineries. He won multiple events, and best overall. He hosts a monthly roundtable with the residents to ensure the menu is a collaborative effort, and often uses resident recipes. Some of his specialties include Chicken Cordon Bleu, Beef Burgundy, and Eggs Benedict.
