Nicole Hodges Executive Director
I was blessed to be born into a family of healthcare workers. As a young child, my mother was the administrator of a skilled nursing community and would often bring me to work with her. It was during that time, as I passed out ice and played games with the residents that my passion for senior care began. Once I became a nurse, I was able to gain experience and hone my skills in various medical environments, including hospitals, skilled nursing and home health. While I found my role in those environments fulfilling, my long-term goal was to obtain a position with assisted living management. I was thrilled when I came on board with Oaks Senior Living as the Assisted Living Wellness Director at the Oaks at Braselton. In that position, I learned the importance of person-centered care and the value of giving every resident purpose through programming and intergenerational interaction. In 2017 I had the opportunity to move to the Savannah area and serve as Executive Director for the Oaks at Pooler. The Pooler community welcomed me with open arms and gave me much insight as to what it takes to build a community of Care Partners and Elders that truly love and care for one another.
Late 2019 I was offered to bring those skills to the Oaks at Towne Lake. I have been blessed with opportunities to care for people in all stages of life and I believe that every person has a right to make their own choices and live with dignity and respect.
When not at work, my husband, Jay, and I stay very busy raising our three sons who continue to live at home with one making his way in the world. We are a very musical family and also enjoy studying the Bible together and spending time outdoors.
