About Oak Hills Terrace Memory Care

Levels of Care: Assisted Living, Memory Care

Oak Hills Terrace Memory Care is a premier Memory Care and Assisted Living community in the Tyler, Texas, area that serves all of Smith County. Our residents come from all over Texas and beyond. No matter where you’ve lived before, we’d be proud to have you call Oak Hills Terrace home.

The area offers residents and visitors an unending list of places to go and see. The Azalea Residential Historic District is a must-see for friends and family visiting. Stroll through the district and view stunning gardens and historic homes. The Discovery Science Place and Historic Aviation Memorial Museum are great places for kids. We also have award-winning wineries and delicious casual dining in the Tyler area.

Whether your loved one requires some help with the activities of daily living (ADLs) or is living with the effects of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, our dedicated staff takes great pride in delivering high-quality care that is compassionate, safe, and resident-centered. Our services are designed to meet our residents’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We offer enriching activities, exciting social programs, wellness classes, restaurant-quality meals, and more.

Before a resident moves into the community, customized assessments are completed so individual care plans can be created. These care plans are updated biannually or earlier if needed. Care plans are overseen by the Executive Director, staff, Resident Care Coordinators, and RNs. In addition to the Medical Director and highly trained nursing staff, our community is staffed by a Certified Activity Director, Certified Assisted Living Manager, Certified Food Managers, and medical technicians.

Memory Care and Assisted Living Community in Tyler, TX

Built in 2011, our property features fine living and dining accommodations, beautiful courtyards with walking paths, seating, and areas for playing outdoor activities. We offer private and semi-private room options and have a limit of 48 residents. Rooms are spacious with modern touches. Bathrooms are all ADA compliant.

Our community has a unique blend of hospitality services and community engagement, with a strong focus on growing meaningful relationships. Our resort-style hospitality services include housekeeping, scheduled transportation, and exciting programs on-site and off.

Gathering around the table for meals is important in our community. Our highly experienced chef creates three delicious meals daily and offers menu-style options. Fried catfish served on Fridays is a resident favorite. Residents can bring fresh ingredients from the local farmer’s market that will be used in dishes. Our private dining room is warm and inviting for everyone to enjoy. Every table is expertly set, with fresh flowers on many days.

Frontier’s Award-Winning SPARK™ Program

The friendly and compassionate staff at Oak Hills Terrace are proud to offer our Memory Care and Assisted Living residents the award-winning SPARK™ program.

SPARK was inspired by the teachings and research of Maria Montessori and Dr. Cameron Camp and provides meaningful and life-enhancing experiences for members of our Memory Care and Assisted Living communities.

Our unique program engages our residents with proven strategies that strive to heighten interaction, optimize cognitive skills as well as promote a sense of purpose and accomplishment. We use tailor-fit assessment tools to evaluate each resident’s capabilities and strengths, so the program can best meet their specific needs. Residents are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities based on their interests and abilities.
