A great place for mom

It's been a very positive experience for me. I think the staff are very knowledgeable in the areas they work in. They seem to be dedicated to their jobs and their residents. Some of their activities include going outside for dinners, water aerobics, and they also have bingo. I would absolutely recommend Oaks on Parkwood to others!... Read more

Great staff - I have been very pleased with the care they provide!

I'm very satisfied with the care Oaks on Parkwood provides for my mom. Communication between myself and the community has been great. I always receive a phone call if there's an incident. They reach out very quickly after the situation with a very good explanation of what happened, and how we can work on prevention in the future. I'm always impressed that as soon as the accident happens, I'm alerted. They are also very responsive if I reach out to them first. I would absolutely recommend their community to others. I've known other people who have family members there, and I've encouraged others to do the same.

Happy with our choice

I really like that the facility is all on one level. The staff seem to keep a great eye on both of my parents. They are great with communication and keep my well informed. They were one of the most reasonably priced and the pricing is all inclusive. They are doing a great job with my parents and we are pleased. We have been very happy with our choice and would highly recommend them to other families.

We toured this community and the tour was very good. They answered all of our questions and were very informative. They were very accommodating and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We did not feel rushed at all and they took their time with our family. I would recommend touring this community

Mom approved

We chose this facility because it was a better value for the money than a lot we looked into, the location, and it is a one level facility which we liked. They also have continued care so we would not have to move her from the facility, she would just transition from levels of care. Her apartment is absolutely adorable and she feels very confident and comfortable in there. Her front door of her apartment leads out to a porch area which is very nice. We have not had any issues at all and they have been very attentive. We are very pleased with them and mom is happy here. I highly recommend them.

Toured, very nice, but expensive

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. This was a very nice looking place, it was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. However, it was also one of the more expensive places we looked at, and out of the price range we were looking in. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.
