An Emotional Goodbye to Hurricane Victims Who Found Refuge Here

The staff at Oak Manor Nursing Home in Flatonia held an emotional goodbye to seven residents who are returning to Rockport after spending a year in Flatonia. The residents were evacuated from Oak Crest Nursing Center in Rockport last August during Hurricane Harvey. That facility sustained major damage in the storm.

“I know they are all happy to be going home, but it’s sad for us to see them leave,” Oak Manor Administrator Chandra Polk said while wiping some tears from her face. “We spend more days with our residents than we do with our own families, so they really become like family to us.”
