Oakmont Livonia and Northville Host Wayne County Health Department Vaccine Clinic


On Friday, January 8th, The Wayne County Health Department hosted two COVD-19 Pfizer vaccine clinics at our Oakmont Northville and Oakmont Livonia communities. The culmination of months of planning, the groundwork of hosting these clinics began back in late 2020 when the State of Michigan announced their Vaccination Prioritization List for distribution of the newly approved Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Because Oakmont Communities are home to a large group of seniors, both Oakmont Livonia and Oakmont Northville were included in Vaccination Prioritization Group 1A – the first such group to be targeted for inoculation in the state-wide vaccination campaign.

As two of the first senior communities to be selected for a scheduled vaccine clinic conducted by the Wayne County Health Department, Oakmont staff at the community and corporate level mobilized quickly to distribute and disseminate information, confirm eligibility, and educate our residents and staff on what to expect as the day of the clinic approached.

Both vaccine clinics were conducted with maximum efficiency and efficacy to ensure all residents and staff members who were due to be inoculated were comfortable, safely socially distanced, and ready to receive the vaccination when it was their turn. Residents and staff were arranged in small groups based on their apartment location in the building and brought to our largest common area, the dining room, in staggered time slots. This allowed residents to remain seated and comfortable while waiting in line for their names to be called.

Once called to the front of the line by volunteers from Balanced Home Care, The Weston Group, and Oakmont, residents and staff were taken to a private nursing station where either Amy or Kim, two exceptional nurses from the Wayne County Health Department, consulted each vaccine candidate on a few questions about past experience and allergies. Once it was confirmed that it was safe for the vaccine to be administered, Amy and Kim did so with compassion and skill – ensuring all vaccinations were quick and relatively painless.

After being inoculated, all residents and staff were monitored for a period of 15 minutes to confirm that no side or ill effects from the vaccine would come to light. Tables were arranged in a socially distanced manner with individual timers, refreshments, and volunteers on hand to see to any need that may have arisen. Monitoring locations were also sanitized between every use. Once it was confirmed that there were no adverse reactions, residents were allowed to return to their apartments.

The vaccine clinics at both Oakmont Northville and Oakmont Livonia were a rousing success. More than 200 residents and staff received their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine with very few noticeable side effects. A second dose will be administered in a similar fashion in three weeks. This effort is the first in a process that will see the entire state, and one day, the entire world protected from a virus that has already impacted the lives of millions of Americans across our country.

To our residents, staff, and volunteers; to the Wayne County Health Department and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services; to the many scientists and doctors who made this life-saving venture ready in record time, we say a heartfelt “Thank You.”


Thanks to all for making the clinics a success!


Urgent Response Required: Oakmont Northville COVID-19 Testing


To our Residents and Staff:

To continue preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our building, Oakmont Northville has worked quickly to secure on-site lab tests for every resident and member of our staff.

Beginning tomorrow morning, licensed representatives from our third-party care provider Balanced Home Care will start administering private, in-room tests for each resident to identify any potential asymptomatic carriers of the virus. These tests are 100% covered by any type of insurance with all other costs of the procedure covered by Oakmont.

To make this testing process as easy as possible, we are asking all residents to immediately provide a copy of their insurance card and driver’s license/state ID through one of the following ways:

Though it is a fast timeline, we are asking that all insurance information is submitted through one of the above channels no later than 8 am on Tuesday, November 24th. If there is some reason this information cannot be submitted in a timely fashion, please reach out to our front office.

Thank you for your continued assistance as we work to keep our residents, staff, and community safe.

We’ll be sharing them here on our website and on our social media channels in a series we’re calling: Oakmont’s Fantastic Fathers!

Oakmont’s Fantastic Fathers: Steve S. – Oakmont Northville

For the days leading up to Father’s Day, we’ve asked our residents and families to share stories, pictures, and favorite memories of their dads, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers who live in our communities. We’ll be sharing them here on our website and on our social media channels in a series we’re calling: Oakmont’s Fantastic Fathers!

Doug wrote in to share some wonderful memories and to wish his father, Steve, who currently lives at Oakmont Northville, a wonderful Father’s Day! 

At Oakmont, Steve is likely known for being an ex U.S. Marine who fought and almost lost his life during the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima, a true American Hero. Of course for me he is all of that and much much more.

He is a wonderful father who always had time for myself and my brother Bruce. He taught us to love and play sports throughout our youth and into adult hood. We would play catch everyday for hours and he coached our baseball teams. When we went on to play sports in High School you would see him at our practices after he was done with work each day. I don’t think he ever missed one of our baseball, hockey or football games. Each winter he would build an ice rink in our back yard so all the neighborhood boys had a place to go after school to play hockey. I can never remember him saying he was too busy to help us with anything we asked of him Including projects at our own homes.

Along with supporting all of our efforts, he is a kind person who knows what the important things in life are and doesn’t sweat the small stuff. I never heard my dad say a bad word about any person.

In closing Steve S. is a wonderful father and I am grateful to be his son.
