Oakmont of San Rafael (Now Open)
5.0

Mom moved in to the Oakmont in San Rafael less than a few months ago. The Traditions memory care team at Oakmont and other team members already feel like family members for Mom and me. This has been a tough transition for both of us and the team has really been so compassionate and supportive. I live close by and I'm able to drop by every day to visit and join in activities like daily morning stretches, brain games, garden picnics, and Thursday live music (so great!) Everyone from the receptionists, the management team, the med techs, the care givers, and the activities team truly care about what they are doing and give 150%. My family is so grateful for the loving care that the the Oakmont team provides for my Mom. And, I appreciate the emotional support and responsiveness whenever I have any questions or concerns. When faced with challenges, they are quick to find solutions. We feel lucky we found Oakmont.

I chose this community because it was recommended that my mother needed memory care. The care was very giving, but we were asked to hire overnight caregivers because she would get up night,which was an additional cost for us. The people were great, the care was great, and it was a very small community . The activities were good and as a family member I was able to visit everyday whenever I wanted to. The communication was easy. I was able to access the director whenever I needed to.

They do a pretty good job keeping it clean, I think they could do a little better on the rooms themselves. Sometimes it can be tough getting answers. They have had a complete change of staff over the last couple of months, they have all new management. I would like to see the laundry situation improved, there are some mix ups with the laundry.
