Oak Park Place Dubuque is situated in a busy suburb of Dubuque, Iowa, just one mile from Kennedy Mall and three miles from Finley Hospital. Assisted living staff members provide a high standard of care while encouraging residents to maintain a sense of independence. The Grove assisted living neighborhood allows residents to customize their apartments to reflect their individual preferences. It's connected to other community neighborhoods by the Main Street Mall, which is designed to resemble Dubuque as it was years ago. There is a beauty salon, cafe and convenience store as well as an on-site fitness center, library and game room where residents can relax and socialize. The staff also organizes activities based on what piques residents' interests, such as chair yoga exercises, knitting group meetings and trips to museums, through the Vibrant Activities program.
