I think we were at an advantage because our dad had seen Oakmont before when looing for a place for a different relative, and he remembered it and was open to it. Overall we thought it would be a good fit for both our parents, with one in need of assisted living and the other in need of memory care. We felt like it would be a good place for both of them. There's a dog in the memory care unit and some birds, which is great for mom. They even brought in some ponies, and my mom was very happy to see those. I like that I can talk to both of my parents whenever I want. I like the interaction with the staff. I feel like they know me, even though I live in another state. They seem equally engaging and friendly as when we were first came through to tour. The other residents in the community seem pretty happy as well, and that makes me feel confident. It's clean, and the food looks appetizing. They're also really strong in activities, especially considering the Covid situation. They're doing the best they can. I would like to see field trips and other opportunities for them to get out, but I think they're doing a great job. It's everything that I need and want for my parents. They're very accommodating. They bring in a dental hygienist, a podiatrist, and hair stylist. There's a pool, a movie theater, a ballroom, three baby grand pianos and an upright in memory care. They have all of the amenities I would want them to have. All in all it's been a good fit for my parents.
We are very happy with the care at this community. The staff has been caring and friendly. We like knowing that the community is clean and well maintained. They have a good variety of healthy meals on the menu. The activities are helpful. We would recommend that families tour this community for the good care and value for a loved one
I think the facility is perfect. The staff is friendly and caring. They are also engaging with the residents.
This place is a very large and spacious community with a lot of residents. It has nice apartments with lots of amenities. The staff is very nice and seem willing to go above and beyond to make the residents seem at home.
Very nice, but expensive.
Montecito is great. The residents are awesome. The staff are caring and helpful. The food is sufficient. Lots of choices with a five week revolution to choose from. I'm happy & feeling grateful to live at Montecito.
This place is just gorgeous. I used to come and help put together scrapbooks with seniors and other activities here. It was gorgeous. When it came time to find a place for my loved one we looked at it. It was quite a bit more expensive than what we were looking for. But when it comes to how clean and friendly they are, I would live here if I could.
I would not take a loved one here ever. They are understaffed, lie, and as far as I can tell have about 0 compassion for those in their care. They will suck you in with their schpiel and then take your loved ones hard earned savings, while not caring a lick for your loved one. Stay away - very far away from this awful place. I swear they sped up the death of my father.....
My mother in law and I toured this beautiful facility as a possible new home for her. It was very nice, the staff was gracious and friendly. The apartments were spacious and bright. In the long run, the reason for not choosing this facility was two fold. My mother in law needs a lot of help and we felt it was important to have a dedicated care manager (the same person every day). We were told that at Montecito Oakmont that the care staff rotates and that the resident would not have the same care manager every day. The second reason was the sheer size of the place. My mother in law felt it was just too large a community for her. She's a bit of an introvert and wanted to live in a smaller, more intimate environment. This community was a close runner-up. I would think that an active senior, who didn't require too much care, would love Montecito Oakmont!
It was a hard decision to place Mom in the next level of care --Memory Care. I visited several places and decided on Montecito. They were very informative and answered all my questions and concerns. I dropped in/out several different times to see how they handled their people. I was very pleased to see how they took pride in caring for each of their special needs. They always have time to be their for them. When my mother wants to go out and take a walk someone takes her out for a walk. I sleep better at night knowing Mom is in a SAFE environment and somebody is watching out for her. Mom must be happy as she doesn't call me as often.
That was too spread apart for me. There were very long halls to walk and it was up there price wise. It was definitely more expensive than the place we chose. The staff was kind of friendly.
We looked at several other places in Northern and Southern California, there were closer facilities, but we chose Montecito Oakmont Senior Living because of its surroundings and the people who work there. It is a beautiful place and everyone there seems happy. We had a great experience with the medicine room. If there has been any issue the staff has been great, totally working with us. I just had a good feeling about Montecito Oakmont, they recently replaced the Senior Director who had given us our initial tour and the new one is just as nice and greets us when we visit and is friendly with both family and residents.
I visited four of the ten communities recommended by a Place for Mom. Montecito Oakmont Senior Living was by far my favorite. This is a community that has retired, assisted and memory care available. My mother is in assisted living but it is comforting to know that if the need arrives she can get memory care with out going to another community. The presentation of this community is one of a resort hotel. It is beautiful inside and out. There is plenty of parking so when I visit or frinds visit there is someplace to park the car. There is a large yard courtyard park in surronded by the buildin wings. A pool and spa with bathrooms for convenience and for changing clothes at the pool. There are multiple activity rooms, a theatre, a library. Lots of activities, friendly staff, just lovely. I told my mom that Montecito Oakmont is were I would want to be.
Michaela was fantastic! Mom really liked her - maybe 3rd place of all we met - and really everyone we met was superb in different ways. Beautiful space, loved almost everything about it but maybe too far away from SF for ease of visits to Mom. Seemed to be the biggest one we saw, large hallways, POOL!!, amazing courtyard spaces. Really well done. Nice that it's privately owned. Keeping this as an option though not ideal...but we get that sacrifices will need to be made in one direction or another.
Best bet yet.... Nice courtyard and year round heated swimming pool, and balcony/patios with units a big plus for Mom.
Nice size floor plans. Partial kitchens (no ovens in some units). Daily rate that increases depending on floor plan and level of care required (approx. $149/day for one person). Attractive and clean. Nice outdoor space, swimming pool, outdoor fireplace.
Not top neighborhood,Clayton Rd is noisy - but good facility.
This facility is set up too much for independent living than I would like for my mom. I worry about the mini-kitchens and such and would prefer something with more combined facilities for dining and activities that would engage my mom more.
