A wonderful place to live!

My mother in law has been living here for several years now. The staff is great, [name removed] is an angel. The meals are delicious and there’s always fun events going on, on a daily basis. The residents are very nice and the facility is clean and has been kept up nicely.

my parents moved in here over five years ago, and when I visit they rave about how lucky they are to live in such a wonderful community of people. they are missed if they have to go to the hospital. they love all the events -exercise, meals, movies, monthly birthday parties, holiday parties. we all love the Carriage Oaks family.

I did considerable research on retirement communities in this area of IL and Central IL. All that was needed to make the decision was one trip through CP after seeing and hearing about the meeting the residents, learning about the numerous activities, learning events, small group activities, fitness programs, dining room opportunities. I knew this was the place for me I would not want to live anywhere else is the country.

It is a welcoming and homey community

Our first impression of Carriage Oaks was very good, we like the size of the community and that it is smaller, it has a very homey feeling to it. Overall the meals are great, the dining room is still a little limited. We do wish they had a few more activities, but given everything going on those are still limited as well.

This is a very nice older but updated facility. The manager is friendly and has been there for 20 years or so and really cares about the residents. I do wish there were more open common areas and I wish there were more easy access to outdoor space. Overall very nice place.

Carriage Oaks is Fantastic for Mom

We love Carriage Oaks for my mom. The people are so friendly and there are so many groups and activities available that she is busy every day if she wants to be. The unit was fully remodeled with new appliances, granite counters, cabinets and flooring. Looks fantastic! We are so glad we made this choice after visiting three other possible places. The others simply did not compare! They moved from a buy-in model to a lease model and that was what allowed us to make the decision. If fact, when we did the numbers, she is spending $100 less here than in her old home because utilities and basic cable, internet are all included and renter's insurance is much less than home owners. Great bargain in the end! Recommend Carriage Oaks to anyone looking for a vibrant and engaging living situation!

Frequently Asked Questions about Carriage Oaks

Carriage Oaks offers 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Carriage Oaks 9.6 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
