Our families experience

We certainly like the cleanliness of the community, it is a beautiful building and the facilities are nice, but they need more staff personnel. When we signed up initially we were told there was a nurse on staff at all times but there is no overnight nurse there. Their food also needs better quality - it tends to be a lot of deep friend items and looks like a toddlers lunch at times. For day to day living of healthy people it is fine.

We DEF made the right choice

We moved our mom here last year. She VERY MUCH wanted to remain in our home but we felt she could no longer be left alone. SHE LOVES OAKWOOD. She's eating better, seems healthier. It was the right choice and the RIGHT PLACE for her. The staff really do care about the residents.

Charming, lovely old building that has been converted into a comfortable facility. Its nice that the rate is all inclusive and does not fluctuate with level of care, so you know what you are dealing with.Reasonable rates. Clean and beautifully appointed. Suites a a bit small, no 2 bedroom available but they were willing to convert 2 1 bedrooms into a 2 with a door in between. I took off one star because they have set dining times, not so flexible.

No complaints!!

My loved one has recently made the move into this community and so far I have no complaints of how things are going for him. The staff have been wonderful and I am comfortable with the quality of care he has been receiving. He has had no issues with the meals and enjoys participating in the activities with the other residents from time to time. Overall it has been a pleasant experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

The community was clean and the staff was very nice and able to answer the questions that we had.

Very Nice Large Community

This is a very nice community, and I would even move here myself. The room they showed us was very nice, it was very large. The community looked great, they have very high nice ceilings. This is a large community, and with my mother mobile restrictions, I didn't feel this was the right fit for my mother.

When I was searching for a place for my friend, I toured Oakwood Senior Living. They took me around the kitchen area, hallways, in common areas and everything seemed pretty clean. The person that took me around was friendly and helpful, but it was not what we were looking for.

Not the best area...

The Oakwood Senior Living is a converted school. I used to go to church in that neighborhood and I was not a fan of the area. The inside was beautiful, though. They had a lot of activities available and were fully staffed. It would be a great choice for someone but it was not what we were looking for.

My Mother in Law Likes It Here, We Are Pleased

My mother is doing very well here at this community. She has adjusted well to it, and she likes it. We know she is safe and in good hands here. They have good staff, and they have been helpful and courteous. I would say they need more aids to help out around the community. They do have nice activities daily for the residents. She isn't very pleased with the food, there is some room for improvements with the meals. Overall she is being cared for well here. I would recommend this place.

Wonderful residence.

Oakwood is new, fresh, and beautifully designed. It has wide hallways to facilitate two wheelchairs side-by-side. The resident rooms are large, have tall ceilings, and plenty of windows to bring in light. As you would expect, the bathrooms are spacious with nice vanities and tiled showers. The food is well prepared and appetizing. The dining rooms are elegant and spacious for wheelchair access in addition to regular seating. But best of all, the staff is caring and attentive. They are genuinely concerned about the welfare of their residents.
