Who We Are

Since 1998, the Salabarria family has been faithfully providing senior living services to older adults in Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Oaks Senior Living founder Nelson Salabarria Sr. immigrated to the U.S. from Cuba after the revolution and worked tirelessly to provide for his family. He wore many hats during his early years in the U.S. but ultimately found his niche in construction and development.

Born From Resourcefulness

Oaks Senior Living was born when Nelson’s mother developed Alzheimer’s disease, and he found himself faced with limited options for the type of care he envisioned for her—safe, secure, and compassionate, with an emphasis on finding joy each day. His dilemma sparked the idea of building a community where seniors could live with dignity and respect while enjoying every minute.

With the help of his son Alex, Nelson made his dream a reality when they built their first Oaks Senior Living community in 1998. Alex’s brother, Nelson, Jr., and brother-in-law, Douglas Shook, later joined the organization, bringing fifty years of construction and development experience to the family business.

Committed to serving with faith, knowledge, compassion, & love.

A Culture of Care

The key to Oaks Senior Living’s ongoing success is working with compassionate people and creating an environment where people are valued. The opportunity to care for the elders among us is a privilege we take seriously every day.

The Salabarria family’s commitment to being personally available to residents, their family members, and staff sets us apart from most senior living operators.
