Review for Oakmont of Novato
Mostly people needing assistance. Not much in activities for physical fitness. Food is not good at all and management doesn't seem to care. Not much socially as well.

Our experience at Oakmont of Novato
My mother was previously a resident at Oakmont of Novato in the Memory Care unit. Her experience at this facility was very bad. They are understaffed at this facility and the staff that they do have are inexperienced. I (and several other families) had to remove and relocate our loved ones that were living at Oakmont of Novato. I would not recommend this facility at the present. They have many issues to work out. The facility is clean and the meals were good. However, the Memory Care unit is very short staffed and the Executive team is always in transition. In the six months that my mother was a resident, we had almost four different GM's.

My Tour Experience at Oakmont of Novato
This was a nice community. It was more expensive than we wanted to spend.

An expensive mistake
This facility may be new and beautiful, but it is deeply troubled stemming from a lack of leadership, frequent management turn-over, a lack of staff training and temporary staff that hasn't been fully vetted. Fall monitors were not functional, nor were the emergency pendants until 10 months after the facility opened. As of this date - [date removed], the state has sited their memory care unit with 12 type A citations, which are the most serious, and 19 type B citations. Now they are applying for a new license, which will remove all prior citations, and consumers won't see a 3 year history of all citations unless they officially request a report from the CDSS (California Department of Social Services) My family was afraid for my mother's safety every single day she was there.

Beautiful on the outside, horrible resident care
My L.O. Lived here, they are all for profit. They spend all of their money on a beautiful building, on marketing, and on a decent chef. Don’t be fooled, both the assisted living community and the memory care Traditions have awful care. Untrained care staff, horrible communication, medication mishaps, unsafe environment. The turnover rate is as ridiculous as their care costs. Save your family member and do not place them in this building. Look online at the department of Social services to see valid and substantiated complaints for yourself.

Caution
Looks great from the outside but this facility has a long way to go insides. Memory care is short staffed and stretched. TV primary source of activities. Care staff is doing best they can. Administration is hands off and has a high turnover rate. 3 Executive Directors in less than 1 year.

Beautiful large and friendly community
I have worked in facilities for senior citizens for 30 years now. I can tell you there are some pretty depressing places out there! I'm so happy that we now have Oakmont in Novato. The staff is wonderful and they have activities and even physical therapy.

I found, friendliness, helpfulness and cleanliness everywhere. The place sparkles. Found willingness to agree to check on my stepfather every hour or two, or more if necessary, including during the nights. This routine is needed besides the calling button, to assure that he will not start walking on his own and fall again. They were willing to take mi throughout the building including the to the memory care section, in spite of the Corona. What I saw were happy well dressed about 40 people around extended large tables, chatting, playing cards and bingo.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the California regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about California regulations for Assisted Living.
