It consistently receives high acclaim from our public and is regarded as one of the best facilities in South Georgia. Twin Oaks has an excellent activities program, a very active Family Council and Resident Council, and is a leader in the State in the area of resident safety.
Annual activities of the residents include the July 4th parade and the Twin Oaks Beauty Pageant, both extremely popular with Bacon Countians and well supported by local civic clubs.
Twin Oaks' front door faces the playground of our ABC Child Development Center. Daily, residents can sit on the front porch and watch the children play, or can receive daily visits from children several times per day. In addition, residents are encouraged to visit the ABC Center and read to the children, or participate in the yearly Easter Egg Hunt.
