We can't say enough about this beautiful assisted living home! We were greeted immediately at the front desk by a warm and friendly receptionist. The lobby is very inviting and has a nice living room feel as you enter. A few of the lady residents were gathered around enjoying each other's company. We were given a tour and were so impressed with the beautiful amenities! The lunch room has a stunning fireplace and all the interior decorations were nicely coordinated. There is ample room for family to have a get together with their loved one if desired. All the staff that we met with were extremely helpful and informative.

my review of Oak Creek Place

I feel my loved one is very happy at oak creek. He really likes his room and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They really went out of their way to make sure he knew what to expect. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

Good place for loved ones

Everyone has been wonderful, the quality of the care services has been very good, but they are having a high turnover rate with their staff. Sometimes it is hard to pin down the itemization for the different types of level of care so that has been a little frustrating. Every time we talk to our loved one they say the food is okay, there are some things she really enjoys. When we first moved in the activities director was doing a wonderful job, each day there was a good variety of things to do.

Don't do it!

Biggest mistake of our lives putting mom here. Hard sell, everything is wonderful. Move in to your cell and become a prisoner of your own mind. NO stimulation. Policies change on a whim. Care levels change instantaneously and therefore so does your bill. The CNAs are from a temp agency - different faces every day. Management is capricious, you never know if you'll get Jekyll or Hyde on any given day. Run while you still can!

Uncaring, unprofessional

When calling to wish my aunt a Happy Thanksgiving and verify she received the flowers I’d sent ... I was told by a receptionist that she had “died a month or so ago”, no date or reason known! I live in Tennessee, have visited the facility, they have my contact information - and this is how I find out she has passed? Good luck

Home sweet home

It has everything an assisted living home should have. Wonderful staff and amenities. It’s not too big and overwhelming like some places I toured. Rooms are up to date and the facility is beautifully maintained. My grouchy 89 yr old grandpa would even agree. :)

Not recommended - look elsewhere

My mother has been at Oak Creek Place since June 2018. Shortly after she moved in corporate changed hands. Since then we are on our third director and our third nurse. There is no communication; this facility is grossly understaffed. The food is terrible according to my mother. My mother was recently placed on hospice care through an outside facility. There is absolutely no coordination between the hospice company and OCP staff. Medications and dietary needs are not being handled correctly. Aids are not trained; turn-over is constant. They are all very pleasant and want very much to help but without training they seem hesitant and bewildered. The only one holding this place together is the receptionist. She handles everything from waiting tables to dealing with internet/cable tv problems because there is never enough staff to take care of these tasks. We are getting my mother out of there as soon as possible. Unfortunately we have to give 30 days notice which means we will have to pay for a room that my mother will not be in for 30 more days. I would not recommend Oak Creek Place at this time.

Maureen Jasniewski - Loved one of resident/client

We have moved my mother to a much better assisted living facility. The director was a very staunch all business person. She was not suited for the position at all. The nurse dropped the ball constantly and was not approachable when we needed answers or asked about my mothers care. The food was not good according to my mother. It seemed as though some of the aids were not happy with their job so they were not caring and helpful. The only person that was helpful, caring and really dedicated to helping seniors was [Name removed] the receptionist. She was doing everything all over for everyone. I could see she was overwhelmed. So when my mother got sick with pneumonia because the nurse was not paying her any attention I took her to the emergency. $75000.00 later she has finally recovered. We thought we were going to loose her for sure. While she was in a rehab facility we learned that the nurse and director had quit ! Her six month experience was not very good. The rehab facility recommended Brentwood Park Assisted Living in Franklin Wi and it is wonderful. A huge improvement. And most importantly my mother is healthy and happy with helpful caring people that are cheerful.

Former resident for three years

My mom lived there for 3 years. Each year they got better, with activities and staff. Before we moved out my mom needed more care then what was in our plan but they gave her the care she needed regardless of cost. (We did get together and up the charge based on the care needed, that is only fair). My mom's safety was the only issue, they arranged staff accordingly. They also allow cats which was a great comfort for my mom.

Oak Creek Place is incredible. The concern of the administrators when I went through the interview process was fantastic. They answered all my questions, were very transparent about every aspect of the community, and they wanted to know if I and any suggestions for how they could best care for my loved one. The food is very nice, and they have a wide variety of options to suit everyone's needs. The have a huge amount of activities. They have an in-house movie theatre, beautiful craft rooms, and everything about the community is wonderful. Even the house keeping staff are certified caregivers. This community is just comfortable and lovely, and I would absolutely recommend it.

Welcoming and warm

Oak Creek Place is a really nice community that definitely caters to my mom’s needs. They’re so attentive and anytime she needs someone, she presses a button and they’re there immediately. Her room is large, bigger than any other community I had toured when I was initially looking for a home for her. The food is warm and even though my mom can be fussy, she really enjoys mealtime. They keep things clean and looking nice and they have plenty of activities to keep everyone involved like daily exercise, bingo, and movie nights. The other residents there really made this transition for her a lot easier because of how warm and welcoming they are. The only complaint I really have is that asking the staff to do certain things, such as cleaning or fixing, can be difficult and doesn’t always get taken care of right away. Other than that, though, I would recommend this place because you really get what you pay for.

Youngest one there

This is a very nice community and my dad's probably one of the youngest residents at the age of 65. He like's his room and he was able to bring his own furniture so it feels more like home for him. They offer a lot of amenities for the resident should they want to take part as well as field trips for shopping and appointments. There is a nice courtyard to sit outside on and I would definitely recommed scheduling a tour here just to see the community first hand.

Clean Property!!

I have no complaints about how things went for my tour of this community for my loved one. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to accommodate our needs to the best of there ability during our visit They had lots of great information to share and answered any questions we had for them in detail. It was just not the right location in the end decision.

Awesome field trips!!

My dad has made a smooth transition into this community and has really adapted well into his new living environment. They offer a wide range of activities and even take them out and about to get there errands done. The food could use some improvements but overall we have no complaints about how things are going.
