Who We Are
Clyde Doering, LNFA, CDP
Clyde Doering was born with a love for the elderly and raised by a, “house full of nurses” (Mother, Father, and Grandfather). Introduced to a nursing home setting at an early age, Clyde grew up spending summers volunteering with activities as well as assisting residents to and from doctors’ appointments and activity outings.
Mr. Doering earned his B.A. degree in Journalism with a minor in English from Angelo State University. While attending Angelo State University, he began volunteering with a nursing home activity program creating, writing and editing their facility newsletter and it was there he found renewed passion in the elderly.
After finishing his internship and working as an interim Administrator, Mr. Doering became a Licensed Nursing Facility Administrator in November of 2011.
After being an Administrator in Central Texas for 3 plus years, Clyde and his wife Kimberly decided to settle in Boerne Texas.
In September of 2015, he became the Administrator of Rosewood Rehabilitation & Care Center in Converse Texas and worked there until September of 2021.
After 6 years at Rosewood Rehabilitation & Care Center, Mr. Doering became an Investigator VI and surveyor with the State of Texas. This position involved him traveling throughout the State of Texas conducting annual surveys and investigations in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities. This position afforded him an opportunity to learn from and work with other surveyors to provide regulatory oversight.
In October of 2017, Mr. Doering became a Licensed Nursing Facility preceptor allowing him to offer oversight and guidance to future Administrators during their internship.
In January of 2019, Mr. Doering joined the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners becoming a Certified Dementia Practitioner and continuing his passion and desire to learn from and help those suffering from dementia and their loved ones.
In March of 2022, Mr. Doering passed a Federal exam that allowed him to become an SMQT surveyor.
In August of 2022, Mr. Doering became the Administrator at Oaks Nursing Center. After almost a year away from being Administrator, he is back working alongside Four Cooks Senior Care and back home as an Administrator.
Outside of work, Clyde is a huge Astros and Longhorns fan. He enjoys spending time with his wife Kimberly and trying to keep up with their 2 sons Carson (5) and Cayden (2).
Patrick James, RN
Director of Nursing
Patrick comes to Oaks Nursing Center from the Midland area. His past life includes working for many years in the oil field. After the collapse of oil prices, Patrick decided it was time to find work that would be more stable than the oil fields. And, here he is; a nurse! Patrick first went to school to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse and, after a few years as such went back to school to obtain his licensure as a Registered Nurse.
Patrick was first employed by Oaks as a charge nurse providing direct patient care to the residents. When the previous Director of Nurses stepped up the career ladder, Patrick was the first person to put his name in the hat for consideration. After considerable interviews and multiple candidates he came out on top of the pack and has now been the Director of Nurses for over one year. In this time frame the facility has seen resident satisfaction increase, employee satisfaction increase and the facilities medicare star rating raise to 5 Stars.
Patrick can be found in various cities across Texas when not at the facility, trying new restaurants with his wife, Angela and exploring the local life these places have to offer. They recently purchased a new RV and hope to visit more state parks in the near future.
Dixie has been a source of kindness in Burnet since she moved here from Dallas in 1977. After retiring from her position as postmaster at the Burnet Post Office she found herself looking for something to do. In her search she found Oaks Nursing Center, where she has been a part of the family since October 2009. Dixie brings joy to our residents and families on a daily basis, with her friendly and caring demeanor.
