An Informal Classy Place

We had the experience of visiting a number of retirement centers and staying at 3, and when we visited Grand Lake Gardens we know this one for for us. We needed to be in a place where we could walk or take public transportation to do our errands. We can walk to 2 grocery stores, post office, hair salon, barber shop, etc. Our medical offices are a10 minute bus ride away. We found fellow residents friendly and happy from the first day we visited. Being new, we've sat at dinner most evenings with new people. Folks are really relaxed and informal. The staff members are capable and accessible. All parts of the place are cared for; even the stairways -- which we use in addition to the busy elevators -- are newly painted and well lighted. The top floor dining room is a gem.

Why we like Grand Lake Gardens

We have been residents here for six years; moving here from San Francisco to be closer to daughters. We are a very diverse and friendly community with a wide range of activities, both in-house and outside. We have lunch and dinner outings every month; van trips to malls, museums and other places of interest. Our driver takes you shopping at grocery stores, but Trader Joe's Walgreen's , the post office and library and many nice restaurants are within walking distance. Our driver also takes you and picks you up from medical appointments. Our sixth floor dining room with views of the Oakland hills is unmatched! You will be warmly welcomed here!
