There is no exception at Oakridge: The client comes first. The dignity and confidence resulting from individualized, client-centered care opens a myriad of doors for each client.

Oakridge Homes provides safe, comfortable living for clients with physical and mental disabilities. Oakridge understands the need for a calm and private setting that a home provides.  The staff at each home strives to convey that sense of comfort and security to residents.

Oakridge provides community support services, wherever a client may live: at home, in a foster care home, or with parents. In Brainerd, Oakridge also provides support to students attending Central Lakes College.

Oakridge Residential Services provide various types of residential, crisis and support services in the following counties: Aitkin, Crow Wing, Itasca, Morrison, Todd, Cass and Wadena.

Through community networking, Oakridge fosters interaction and activity outside the home setting, and builds relationships between community organizations and clients. Oakridge has also been a founder of several successful community clubs and activities, increasing awareness and involvement for all community members.

Opportunities for clients reach far beyond the home and community. Human needs for exploration and adventure are met through day trips and outings – whether it be a day of ice fishing on Mille Lacs Lake or trip to the Twin Cities to take in a concert. Oakridge staff helps to build confidence within each individual through endless opportunities often taken for granted by others.
