Review ofOaks at Hampton
5.0

I thought Oaks at Hampton was lovely. I had a great first impression of the property. It was one of the first places that we toured, and because of that, I don't feel like we got to see everything that they had available to offer. They showed me the rooms and introduced me to a lady who happened to be sitting in the hall doing a puzzle. I wish I was shown the facility in more detail or had known to ask to see more things. We would have liked to have seen more common areas and talked more about amenities and things that might have factored into our decision. Of course with just a tour, we don’t know what it’s like to live there. But based on the tour, it looked like a great place.

We chose The Phoenix because of the location as well as we knew some people who lived here already. They do offer shared and private rooms here. My mom is in memory care and the activities directors that they have there are wonderful. During the week the care is a 5 but sometimes on the weekends some things are overlooked and they seem to be short staffed. I have been very pleased with them and I would recommend to others looking.

This was the newest facility we saw. It was really pretty and very nice. I didn’t get to eat the food, but they had a lot more space here - bigger dining areas and recreation areas. When you walk into the lobby, it's really pretty. I met some of the people, and all of them seemed happy. The lady who took us on the tour was very helpful. She did a great job.

I'm very happy with them. I've been very pleased with the care and the comfort that they provide. They made it very clear, if there's' anything at all that you need, press that call button. And the vast majority of the time they're right there responding to those calls. My loved one tells me the food is good overall. She loves breakfast, but she said that lunches and dinners are starting to go downhill a little bit recently. As far as activities, I know they do manicures once a week, bingo, and they often have outings on the bus/van. They celebrate all the different holidays, and they do celebrate them very well and make them special for the residents, even the smallest little holidays. If there's any opportunity to celebrate, they do. I made a suggestion to the activities director that they could send the activities calendar to the family members too so we can encourage our family members to attend the events.

I would recommend the community to others. The friendliness of the staff is something that stands out to me. The community feels like a home away from home. They have amenities of a hotel, but doesn't feel like one. My loved one isn't happy with the food. The community does have a set menu and the residents get to select their meals. They are making nutritious meals as well. I would like to see more comfort food mixed into the menu. I'm happy to have my daddy there. It is close by. The care meets my expectations. The biggest grievance I have is they have raised the rent three times in fourteen months. They are going to price him out of the community. Throughout the pandemic they had zero cases of the virus in the residents. They are excellent at keeping the residents safe.

While our loved one was there they took excellent care of her, and towards the end when we had to bring in hospice they allowed us to come in more than just the normal visiting hours with covid. They were very understanding and a very well ran facility.
