Review of Oakton Arms assisted living

My husband was moved into their assisted living this past January. I also live in their independent living facility. The senior living community had great service and caring staff until this past few months. Food was great and everything was well run until this point. After the assisted living was opened on their 4th floor and they hired a bunch of unprofessional nursing staff, things are going down the drain here. My husband has early stages of dementia and the staff on his floor do not care for him at all. Last week, I saw a caregiver in the morning being rough with him while dressing him up before breakfast. He told her to stop and to be slow, but she didn't bother. I also had a question for their nurse that morning about his medications and she did not seem to know what was going on with health. The nurse just comes and hands him the medication, but when we ask what medication are you giving him, she has does not know. This place has become awfully bad and they need to hire some professional staff.

Great value and support

My mother has been living here for two years now and it is great. The rooms are large, the staff is so helpful and accommodating. She has a 1-bedroom, which is terrific. If she is under the weather, they bring lunch and dinner to her and she loves the food. I really can only think of good things to say.

Care and comfort

We were at this community for care for a time period. The staff was nice and the community was always clean. The menu seemed appealing and they offered activities. We wanted a different environment. We would suggest that families tour this community for the care of a loved one for the options that are available for care.
