O’Connor Woods

For over 30 years, O’Connor Woods, a Life Plan Community / CCRC, has faithfully supported the community’s seniors in Stockton California. Sitting on 34 acres in San Joaquin County, O’Connor Woods offers a variety of living options and services including independent and assisted living, skilled nursing, rehabilitation, memory care, and adult day care. Through multiple architectural and interior design renovations over the past twenty years, one of the most significant alterations is the expansion and renovation of the dining room. The renovation signifies a transformation within the community about residents’ need and desire for a better quality dining experience.
