Over 40 Beginnings

They say life begins at 40, and we agree!

You’d think that by your 40th birthday, you’d have it all figured out.  But by the time you get there, you realize that there are no easy answers, things weren’t always what they seemed and that some of your biggest challenges are still ahead. Here at The Oaks at Ojai we are shocked to have been in business for 40 years, and that even with all of that experience, there’s still so much we want to do and learn.
