We provide 24-hour care from certified, well-experienced caregivers. Meals are served family-style in the kitchen or dining room. Activities are planned on a weekly basis and a personal trainer is provided for each resident two to three times a week to assist with mobility. We provide art and music therapy as well as entertainment or scheduled outings on occasion. Weekly visits by a beautician Monthly visits by a nail-tech are part of life at The Heaven House. Transportation to doctor appointments may be arranged.
With a 5-1 resident to caregiver ratio, the focus and attention surpasses any available in the Oklahoma City area.

Comforts Of Home

The elderly benefit tremendously from the smaller environment of the group home setting. Heaven House keeps your loved one from the isolation of "staying in their own home," yet it is not institutional living with large numbers sharing the dining room and other living activities.  Often times, the social pressure of large living facilities is exactly opposite of what most elderly really need and want. The residential home offers a full life complete with social interaction, exercise, family visits, along with organized activities that are encouraged but optional.

Dear Diane, I do not know where to begin to thank you for all you have done for my Mother and me this past year and a half. I could go on and on about our journey together and it all began when I learned of the care you gave to your own Mother. God had a plan for you, my Nickie, and me. Thank you, Diane, for all that you did to help me care for Nickie until the Heaven House opened. Nickie’s last year was so peaceful there and comfortable for her. I thank you for all you did to make it that way. Thank you for standing up for me, and supporting what I wanted tor Nickie. You are a true friend. The Heaven House is all I could have ever wanted for her for the last days of her stay here on earth.

Thank you, Diane, and thanks to all the wonderful caregivers at the Heaven House.

I am writing this unsolicited letter of recommendation for the Heaven House, assisted living home, out of a sense of gratitude for the care provided there for my Aunt. After a stroke, we tried a traditional nursing facility for several months; the care was adequate but I could tell she felt isolated and not at ease.

About that time, my life long friend, Diane Timmerman, was planning the opening of the Heaven House. I knew she had cared for her own elderly mother, who happened to be my 4th grade teacher, in her home in her final years and had a real interest in providing elder care.

Because I know Diane is such a reliable and caring person, the decision to entrust her with the care of my Aunt was an easy one. Each time I visited I have always been impressed with the staff and their care of all the residents.

As an orthopedic surgeon with over 25 years of practice experience, I have a lot of experience with patients and families that are faced with difficult decisions about assisted living as a result of declining health and independence. In my opinion, The Heaven House is as close to an ideal situation as possible for those individuals who require care.

Thank you, Diane, for doing God’s work in following your calling to do the Heaven House. Thanks for offering to the elderly an alternative to the large and institutional facility. Marble floors and chandeliers do not make for good care. The 5-1 resident to caregiver ratio provides the attention, focus and dignity our loved ones deserve. My Mother is happy and peaceful in the small family atmosphere of the Heaven House and I have peace of mind knowing all her needs are met in a gentle and loving way by staff that is caring and considerate.

Paula was gracious enough to take me to all four of the Heaven Houses yesterday. The homes were all very beautiful and inviting. you have truly captured your goal of providing care in an environment that feels like home.

Most importantly though, I wanted to share with you that your staff were all extremely gracious and professional. Each one of them took the time to answer our questions and provide us with a tour. I was deeply impressed as each staff member voluntarily shared with us why they love working at the Heaven house. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed meeting your staff, they were all wonderful.

May God continue to bless you and the people of the Heaven Houses.


Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to learn about the Heaven House. I want to share with you a bit about my history and how this journey started. For 13 years I cared for my aged mother in my home.  She passed away at the age of 98, in January of 2010.  In March of 2007, after she had suffered 4 strokes in one year, I was surrounded with wonderful full time help for her.  During a time of deep sorrow for personal reasons along with my mother's declining condition, I was inspired by God to open a small group home for the elderly.  I had no previous knowledge of such a facility.  I was also inspired to let most of my mother's help go and begin the tedious process of caring for her myself. 

The experienced help that worked for me at that time understood as I cut their hours in half and I told them I would be focused on opening an assisted living facility.  They were kind and understanding.  We have remained close and they are part of my current staff at the Heaven House.  In the meantime, the elderly neighbor in his late 80's who has lived across the street from me for 31 years became a widower.  He began eating lunch and dinner in my home in October of 2006.  After a decline in health and a need for more supervision, he is now 92 and lives in my mother's quarters in my home.


I am a loving, capable, compassionate person.  I see caring for the elderly as my true calling in life.  This type of assisted living facility is the only living situation I would have considered for my mother.  I have come to know there are many others who feel the same.  Most of these individuals are currently caring for a loved one at home.
With the group home focus, I began what became a three and a half year quest for information on this type of facility.  I have researched, visited homes, studied and attended classes.  With the death of my mother, the time became right to open the Heaven House. On October 1, 2010 our first residents moved in!

I hold a degree in English from Oklahoma State University, have my teaching certification, and some courses towards a Master’s Degree.  I owned and operated a florist for 10 years and was a Master Designer.  I sold that business to assist my husband in his thriving cattle brokerage business. I did all the accounting while simultaneously caring for my mother.  Today, I have scaled my life down to only having the Heaven House and my family life.  I have attended and completed the Assisted Living Administrators’ Program for Certification for the past 9 years, as well as the training and certification for Medication Administration; both of these are required by the Oklahoma State Department of Health.  Along with my hands-on experience with the elderly of both the past and present, and the formal training I have received, I am confident the Heaven House successfully meets all the needs of its residents.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing more about our unique facilities.

Brian Simms has been co-administrator of the Heaven House for 4 years. Brian is a vibrant contribution to the management and the residents love him. He is fun and funny and makes the residents laugh, especially when he asks the ladies to guess his age! They think he’s in high school, but he’s not! 

Brian was the youngest of his grandmother's 14 grandchildren and enjoyed a close relationship with her. He had the additional advantage of living in the home with her from the age of 12. They talked, played games, and he was very involved as she aged until her death at 98. This is an experience that can only be learned by direct personal involvement and contact and is life changing. 


Brian and his wife, Rebeka, live close by all the Heaven Houses with their two children Katherine, 4, and Daniel, 2.

Brian graduated from Bishop McGuinness Catholic high school and achieved a degree in Business & Communication from Concordia University, Irvine, California in 2003. He is dedicated, comfortable and a valuable contributor to the entire operation of the Heaven Houses & our team of staff, residents, and families.
